https://bbs.archlinux.org – I took the idea from wifi-select, but wic comes with 4 major improvements1. wpa: wpa and open become main stream while wep is going to phrase out of the market. I dropped wep support and added wpa-eap. As you can see, my dorm only has open and wpa wifi.2. essid collision: because my dorm has lots of wireless which have the same essid, the profile often needs to be updated in order to use. my solution is appending mac address to the end of ssid, so every id is unique.3. awk improvement: kinda trivial but it is simpler now4. source code clean up: i dont use tmp files in wic. it is 100% clean.
