Wifi.....

Post by Zuto Kaza »

Hello,

Wifi:
Does ReactOS support WPA and WPA2 wifi security encryption yet?

Tested a little
I tested the React in Virtualbox and it is pretty good. All it needs is a pretty skin or Litestep. I didn't have wifi, but if WPA and WPA2 gets supported, then I'll test Gimp, Photoshop, Blender, Litestep, LMMS, Audacity, Makehuman, and Libreoffice.

Start up was super fast. Beats Microsoft windows.

ReactOS does NOT support WPA/2 yet.
ReactOS is still in alpha stage, meaning it is not feature-complete and is recommended only for evaluation and testing purposes

I have not tested this on reactos, but it should work... now or in future....
its GPL2/BSD so it can be integrated...

I'd like to try it, but.....ReactOS crashes due to my USB. I can't transfer the "wpa_supplicant-0.6.7.exe." Using virtualbox.

You can still e.g. create an ISO image and load it to Virtualbox.

Got the wifi working. Overall it is a fantastic OS....just needs bugs worked out of it. Most of the programs I use as a Game developer worked, but they crashed on and off. It ate up quite a bit CPU too. Not sure if it was because I tested it in virtualbox (Using one processor) , leaks, or it is just built that way. I rank it as my 3rd favorite OS. Can't wait for a stable release, but I guess I will have to.

Wifi
I meant I got the wifi working through Virtualbox. Elementary OS Luna Linux connected to the internet and the wifi was emulated to ReactOS.

Errors:
Would errors I find help with the creation process? Some of the errors said that things were missing from some of the .dll or some of the programs had to be run as administrator to install everything. Maybe react could ask the user if "he/she/it" wants to run as administrator (Like in Microsoft windows).

Use a lot of software:
I use a lot of free open source software. I can find errors or locate the bugs for programs I use. (Gimp, Photoshop, Blender, Litestep, LMMS, FL studio, Audacity, Makehuman, photoshop, Qttabbar, Dexpot, encfs4win, veracrypt, photoshop, game engines, Libreoffice, and ect.)

Tabs:
Also, does react OS have "tabs" for the react file explorer? Kinda like chrome tabs. For instance, like Clover and QTtabbar.

Workspaces:
Dexpot is a good example for workspaces.

React login:
Windows login password. I set it, but it never asks me for it?

The password is hard-coded with admin privileges, because it is considered an annoyance for testers to have to keep logging in!
Please keep the Windows classic 9x/2000 look and feel.

They may help you with a problem, so do have a look at them.

anybody who has an idea when WPA2 will be available? These days there are a lot of devices which don't even want to work anymore with "regular" WPA :-(

Whenever we have enough resources.
I use ReactOS on real hardware. Will you? My Computers: https://www.reactos.org/wiki/PC_ROS_Rigs Go all the way to the bottom.

ReactOS will do all that Windows does eventually just lower your expectations at the moment and you will not be disappointed. Being in Alpha development indicates that stuff that works now may be broken at any time but vice versa, of course!

Keep testing, feedback through Jira and the site, all feedback as long as it is constructive is welcomed.

I recently set up a 600 USD bounty on BOUNTYSOURCE for WPA/WPA2 implementation as well as a 100 USD bounty for making a WiFi connection manager. The former will expire in 6 months while the latter has no expiration date. If you have the necessary skills and want to help advance the ReactOS project while making some cash, this is your chance!

Good luck and cheers!
