Welcome to the development home of Wireless LAN Monitor (XWLAN/WLAN)

XWLAN/WLAN enables you to switch your OS/2 - eComStation system between wired and wireless network. The Wireless LAN Monitor is available both as a XCenter Widget as well as a standalone program.

The project home page is http://wlan.netlabs.org/en/site/index.xml

This page needs some polishing. So if you want to contribute feel free to contact the project maintainers.

History

Christian Langanke has developed xwlan/wlan from the beginning as Netlabs open source project. Xwlan is the standard tool for almost all eCS notebook users for switching between wireless and wired network profiles. Since years xwlan works very well. But now it needs some minor updates and bug fixes. For this we transferred the cvs source code into svn and set up this ticket system.

Beside developing the source code Christian made a marvelous good job in documentation and making presentations at various Warpstock events. Follow the links at http://wlan.netlabs.org/en/site/index.xml

In January 2013 Andreas Buchinger began to contribute. First step was pushing Adrian to set up the svn and creating this page.

  • check out complete source tree from svn (trunk)
