Wireless channels list $30 {awarded}



  • [update 3/29] In the 3/26 beta the channel info is integrated into the drop-down box, but now the frequency is no longer shown (thus I had to start using shell again).

    [update 3/20] In the 3/19 beta the GUI displays output from "ifconfig ath0 list channels"; this suffices.
    Bounty awared to the pfSense team: paypal@chrisbuechler.com

    (original post) In the web gui for wireless settings, add a description in the [wireless channel selection drop-down box] that displays the details about each channel number to save users the hassle of going to a shell prompt and inspecting the device.

    Thanks,



  • This is on our list for 1.1 but anyone is more than welcome to work on it, we wont be working on this for a bit.



  • BTW, This work was done by Seth Mos and is in 1.0-RELENG_1  Do you plan on fulfilling the bounty promise?



  • This bounty was awared to the pfSense team "paypal@chrisbuechler.com" on 03/29/06.
    If it went to the wrong address please forward it on.
    Also, it would be helpful to add the Frequency to the drop-down; especially for 5.xGHz.
    Thanks,-pc

    Even though this was already on your schedule I really appreciate not having to open a shell prompt for the wireless channels list.

    Thanks databeestje!



  • This code has made it into CVS but unfortunately only in HEAD and not RELENG_1.

    So the next version major version (1.1) will include this!
