    Wireless Networks...


    Is there a program that will show the wireless networks that i am or can connect to for FC3? Something from the command line would be fine, it would actually be nice. If there's a GUI that's fine too. i just want a program i have a lot of options with. So far i haven't found one program that will allow me to even see what wireless networks are in my range.

    Check out Kismet - http://www.kismetwireless.net/ .

    For Fedora Core 3 the easy way to get it installed is to follow the directions for installing / configuring Yum here (just make sure that you use the provided yum.conf) - http://www.fedorafaq.org/ . I think that it (kismet) comes from Dags repo so you might need to enable it.

    Once you have yum working it's as easy as "yum install kismet"

    Also available with the above yum.conf is "Aircrack" and "Airsnort". The last is the only one with a GUI.

    Another thing that you might want to check into (Google for) to make Yum a little easier to use is yumex. It will give you a GUI front end that makes enabling repos super easy and make reading through all the available packages (literally thousands) a little less tedious.
