Network Manager or WiFi Radar

Post by manishk » Fri Aug 31, 2007 7:38 am

I have been using Network Manager for some time now to connect WiFi.

Almost everytime the first 1-2 attempts to connect to fail and sometimes it doesn't even detect any signal (I'll have to reboot to make it detect the signal).

Is WiFi Radar any better??

Don't fix it if it ain't broken, don't break it if you can't fix it

Please tell which associated wlan driver you are using.
I am using the ipw3945 which tends to crash sometimes. This might be the reason why the network manager can not help.

I have the bcm4311 card so I use its windows driver with the help of NDISwrapper
