Subject description: ..nearly there..
 

Here are two scripts for connecting to wifi... (not mine)

They both use wpa_supplicant and ncurses to provide a nice GUI that does not need X Smile

I hacked them a bit for Puppy... They *nearly* work fine for me...

But sometimes they connect, sometimes not...

I don't know what other changes to make to them:

https://gitlab.com/sc0ttj/dotfiles/blob/puppy-stretch-7.5/bin/wifi5.sh

https://gitlab.com/sc0ttj/dotfiles/blob/puppy-stretch-7.5/bin/raspberrypiwifi.sh


I would love it if someone who knows about wpa_supplicant in Puppy could make these work reliably on Puppy...

I tried, but failed.. Don't really know what else needs doing..

Any takers?

fatdog64 has ncurses based wifi tools. I think it might be called network_wizard.

Nice to know about your wifi tools sc0ttman. The more such tools the better since always useful somewhere since no one tool usually does everything just as we want it.

I've found with puppy tools that if you are scanning for 2.5GB networks, that puppy tools historically haven't scanned long enough to find all the wifi networks [1]. The issue is that the 2.5GB band is a bit saturated. This isn't an issue with the 5GB band due to the shorter range of 5GB wifi.

Note that this isn't just an issue with puppy. I also had this issue with the Nintendo Wii. Also it is possible that this issue might be fixed in newer versions of puppy.

P.S.1: I think I'll try adding both Sc0ttman's ncurses wifi tool, and the netsetup.sh (from fatdog64) to my tiny devaun.

P.S.2: darry19662018 has also posted a CLI script to connect to wifi [2].

I should point out these are not my tools ... the authors are probably listed in the scripts... Don't wanna take credit for other peoples work ... When I say I hacked them, I mean like 2 or 3 lines ..

But, I would really like a simple non-X way of making wifi work...

There is also this WLAN tool, which uses Bash-CGI and a web browser based frontend.. I've no idea how complete or "working" it is...

Demo: https://wlan.bashops.sh/

Source code: https://github.com/tinoschroeter/bash_on_steroids/tree/master/DEMO/wlan

network-setup.sh in Fatdog works OK for me. I've added it to my Quake like F1 show/hide toggle (tilda terminal) ncurses tui menu



Clicking that network menu setup option opens a new tilda tab with network-setup.sh running within that
