Gentoo wireless - My way - Updated

Jakob Westhoff

I have written a little script to configure my wlan device in gentoo linux more easily some time ago. I blogged about it here

While working with it I never encountered any problems. But now Tobias Schlitt discovered a little bug.

The script seems to create some fragged config variables, if special characters like "!" are used in the accesspoint name.

Toby was so kind to append a patch to his bug report.

I have just incorporated it into the net script combined with some little changes I made to it since the last time. You can download it below.

Thanks Toby!
