Looks great, although im somewhat new at this. I have a few docklets installed already, and did everything right to my knowledge and it is not in the "Add" list, with a system refresh also. Any Ideas? (the file and everything with it is in the docklets folder)

Well, what about file/folder permissions, would you mind to check/compare them to other folders under the docklets folder? In my system, the WiFiDocklet.dll has the following security entires: SYSTEM (Full Control) Administrators (MACHINENAME/Administrators) (Full Control) Users (MACHINENAME/Users) (Full Control) Additionally, I log to both systems as local administrator. I have not tested with a regular user account.

For some strange reason, after i restarted my objectdock, it could detect the docklet! and it's amazing! Thanks fedro!

It's great to know you managed to make it work. Today I tested with both the latest free version available and the latest plus alfa and they worked fine with both Vista and XP VM's I use to develop. ¿Any suggestions for an update?

I know this is going to seem like a stupid question, but I can't find the docklets folder I have to put the ZIP folder in. How do I find it?

I just downloaded it again and everything worked perfectly! I'd been looking for a network docklet for a couple of days are there are not a lot that work well or at all, so I really appreciate your work.

After trying many (and I mean MANY) times, I can't get it to work...I'm running XP (SP2) and ObjectDock ver 1.9 Plus...any hints??? Thanks

Well, I do not have a laptop/PC with a wireless network adapter... all I have is a XP VM (which does not emulate the WLAN as a WiFi adapter) so I have no real way to debug my code on an XP machine. Maybe if you could PM me with more details on your setup and the troubles you are facing? Are there any other XP users out there facing similar problems?

Yes, right here. Lenovo X61 Tablet running Windows XP SP2 and OD+ 1.90a (Build 538u).

Would you mind to elaborate? When you open the configuration settings... are there any adapters being detected? Could you post some images of the error?

Hey fedroponce, I'm having the same problem that others are having; I've downloaded from WinCustomize several times, extracted everything to the docklets folder, and I still can't get the docklet to show up to add it. I'm running XP SP2 and using OD Plus 1.9 Build 535u. Even after I restart OD, it isn't showing up. I've also verified the security settings for the DLL that you mentioned earlier. Any ideas? I could really use this docklet!

The docklet uses WLAN API to retrieve & sense the WiFi adapter information... It seems that the required WLAN API is not installed in your system. For Windows XP users, you should download & install Microsoft Wireless LAN API (KB918997) in order to use the Docklet. Windows Vista already includes WLAN API.

Just a suggestion, but I think putting the extended IP in the detailed information would be great. Having the address readily available is very useful for someone like me who needs it to remote in while at work and whose ISP seems to enjoy resetting it every couple days. I'm too lazy to go to ipconfig every day to check if it hasn't changed.

Vijartal, I am not sure what you mean by "Extended IP Address", I understand that whenever you use a dialup or DSL connection to internet the internet gateway is configured to release an DHCP IP address to the computer (which is the one that is being shown, but the router itself gets an internal and an external IP Address. I think you need the router's external IP address to be shown... is that it? I have tried ipconfig but I see no "extender ip" there... whould you mind to clarify this?

Oh, wow! I didn't even notice I typed "extended"... strange. Yes, I did mean the external IP address.

Comment #17 Thursday, July 17, 2008 10:25 PM
But, at least in my system I see not "External" IP Address asigned to my WiFi Adapter... in my configuration I have a Wireless broadband router which services my home network by leasing Private IP addresses to the hosts. Could you explain how is your setup?

Well, the router assigns its own IP addresses to each computer connected to the router, while the IP address for our modem, the external IP, is provided by the ISP. For instance, my router-assigned IP is 123.456.78.901 and my external IP is 12.34.56.789, which is what I need to allow remote access to my home network. Obviously these aren't my actual IP addresses. I was under the impression this was how all networks were set up. ( Normally I would have to log on to my router's internal setup manager or go to sites like whatismyip.com to make sure the ext. IP didn't change. Hopefully this makes things clearer.

How does it get the percentage? Mine shows 99% but i'm sorta far away from the router. Just curious.

The WIFI API has a method that retrieves the information from the wifi driver... I just get the number and show it. Through some testing (with my laptop) and moving around I have found that it actually changes (a few times below 80%) but mine too shows 100% almost all the time (but I am quite close to my router).
