sweet, I just committed join "" (aka, join any) to at the

if you want your laptop to automatically connect to specific networks *and* any open wifi, you now can:

join foo wpakey foopassword
join bar wpakey hunter2
join baz nwkey 12345
join ""

Just in time for Day 3 of I committed a patch to wpa_supplicant so can properly roam with the 802.1X ssid.

The hard work was done by Gregor Best, and I've been testing it around here the last few days.

Packages aren't yet available, just cvs up and compile it yourself to use it for the rest of the congress.


ESPECIALLY in the Assemblies!

You are damaging and ruining the wifi for everyone else. events.ccc.de/congress/2018/wi

Good news, attendees

has updated the Android app to the correct ESSID for this year's congress.

If you used the previous version of 35c5 wifi, you MUST update and apply a new configuration.

We're sorry for the inconvenience.

my favourite commit to 6.4 was adding the join option, hope y'all enjoy it!

I am now doing an upgrade over an 'd network from a Theo built snapshot.

This is indescribably awesome.

Barring problems, this will be in the 6.4 release for everyone to enjoy.

IT'S IN!!!!!

"""Introduce 'auto-join' to the wifi 802.11 stack.

This allows a system to remember which ESSIDs it wants to connect to, any
relevant security configuration, and switch to it when the network we are currently connected to is no longer available.

Works when connecting and switching between WPA2/WPA1/WEP/clear encryptions.

example hostname.if:
join home wpakey password
join work wpakey mekmitasdigoat
join open-lounge
inet6 autoconf

now that the spec has been published, it's time to actually write down my ideas for things to implement in .

doesn't mean I'll *do* them. But it means if I do start, I'll at least have references.

YAY, and the one I'm bringing to can do the same SSID on both the 2.4 and 5Ghz bands.

Welp, now I have *two* APs that support 802.1X authentication. That wasn't the point of buying them, but it might be fun for a future project.

At the I was able to get nwid switching (sometimes called roaming) working for 's . It switches between no encryption, WEP, and WPA1/2.

One major thing left to fix, then it is time to send the diff out for review.

my sekrit project that I've been working on at (and many other) has been tested with no encryption, WEP, and WPA2.

only one major change request is left, then cleanup, and showing it around.

After a few hours of debugging and fixing little bugs with @stsp , my sekrit project is now functioning!

Still have a couple (heh) bugs to fix, but I can see the light!

Look at that, 6.3 has been released!

Highlights include massive improvement in support for /#arm64 platforms, virtualization on /#i386 platforms, (including roaming), more of the network stack is unlocked, and no artificial limits in autoconfiguration.


"""Attach bwfm to the Broadcom 4350 found in the 2017 MacBook.

Easily handles >150Mbps transfers through a 5Ghz AP.
