Raspberry Pi Wireless Connection Control

Introduction

recently, I found a software to manage wireless connection under Raspberry Pi (i.e Lunix), it called wicd-curese. It is easy to install it by running the following command:

sudo apt-get install wicd-curses

However, it request to install quite a few other packages but those daemon run in the background.

After installed, you can run it with command:

sudo wicd-curses

Then, the following screen will display for your setup control:

  • Right Key “->” to Configure
  • R to refresh the list.
  • D to Disconnect
  • C to Connect
  • F10 to save

You must be capital such as [SHIFT] C to connect. If you get a message saying no networks detected press   and type in wlan0 in the wireless interface field and press F10 to save.

IT人在工廠日記 – 飯店捉老鼠

此照片是我在一間大陸飯店吃午飯時拍下的,當時伙記們很落力地捉老鼠,完全沒有顧慮到在座客人的感受,但是大陸人也很奇怪,這好像是平常事,而我也跟其它客人一樣,留在座位觀看,只求老鼠不要躲過來便算,這就是大陸的生活。如果事情發生在香港,客人會奪門而走,而這飯店肯定要見報被投訴,可是在大陸,這便是一件很平常普通的小事。
