Rutilt is a wireless GUI written in C++/GTK that features:

* Scanning for available networks and connecting to open or WEP networks.
* Profiles for commonly used networks
* Displays link status, IP number, Signal level, Noise level, MACS
* Special support for Ralink devices (WPA)
* Other nice stuff (tray icons)!

Rutilt is was developed by Romain Bondue (THANK YOU!). Home page :

http://cbbk.free.fr/bonrom/

I packaged this with Mark's dotpup wizard.

During install You'll be asked "Would you like to have Rutilt check for a profile called "run-at-boot" and automatically connect?". I made a script that will look at Rutilt's saved profiles for one titled "run-at-boot" if it finds one it will automatically connect to that network using iwconfig. If you answer yes it will make an entry in rc.local. For this script to do anything you must have your wireless module loaded before this script runs. Might be useful if you always connect to the same network. If you don't want / need this script just answer "no" and Rutilt will be installed normally.

Rutilt calls a script for DHCP, /usr/local/share/rutilt/set_ip.sh that I set-up for puppy.

Anyway this is a big improvement over WAG, especially since it's broke in 2.02, but also needs more space (380K). Give it a try!

EDIT: Aug, 15 Updated Rutilt to V.12. This fixes a bug in setting the rate.

Wow, nice interface very understandable, far better than a working W.A.G.
Its a keeper, needs a icon (maybe the one in the taskbar)
Is this the current one dated (today?) on the link given?

I think so, the Rutilt web page is down right now. This is version 0.11, Romain emailed it to me, I dont know when it was posted on his site.

Thanks for the feedback!!

Where's the WPA support? I could only get it to toggle between none and WEP in the Encryption drop down box.

WPA support is only for Ralink Chipsets.

My wireless card under windows offers me WPA - does that mean I have the Ralink chipset? My card is the Intel IPW2200BG.

No, I think that's an Intel chipset. I didn't mean WPA is only supported for Ralink devices in Linux, but that Rutilt can only set WPA for Ralink devices.

I don't think WPA is implemented in a consistant way for Linux, but I haven't had much experience with it.

I think it involves the use of something called "wpa_supplicant", but I'm way too inexperienced to mess around with something like this. Just hoped that this software would sort it all out for me!

Thanks.

Thank you for this great little gadget. Works great!
Only wish I'd found it sooner. After messing with command line, discovering WAG in 2.02 was broke, fixing it, finally getting things working after hours of headscratching, then rutilt did the same job in two minutes.
Its a keeper Very Happy
It should be standard in future puppy releases.

I agree, this should be a standard in puppy.

Does this work with Puppy V2.01r2, V2.02, or both?
