NWAM Phase 1 EA - looks really good

Hi All,

 So I took the Acer Aspire One 10" and installed or company VPN software.

 Jumped into the network and followed the instructions.

NWAM Phase 1 Early Access looks really good, it's got more buttons and whistles than I expected.

 I'm really going to have to test it some more, but it looks really cool, I'll have to build some profiles, see how it really configures.

  Looks like you cannot use it with the panel Network Monitor, the "Track system active interface" switch does not want to work.

skge vs. myk with nwam

My Acer C90S laptop has the Marvell Technology Group Ltd. 88E8056 PCI-E Gigabit Ethernet Controller, 11ab 4364.

I've been running the sysconnect skge driver for about a year and a half, it's worked really well.

I have notice recently that dladm show-link could not see the state correctly, this caused the new nwam not to be able to switch automatically to the atheros wifi if I unplugged the cable.

This is also a 64Bit Intel dual core desktop processor laptop, so I need to be able to build 64 bit drivers,

I found another blog entry that talked about the myk gld3 driver available from http://homepage2.nifty.com/mrym3/taiyodo/eng/.

After downloading the mac.h and mac_ether.h and installing in /usr/include/sys, following the instructions in the enclosed README.txt to change the links in the directory I built the driver.

I removed the old SKGE driver and did the update to the myk driver.

nwam now see's when I unplug the cable and rolls to the wifi, all the icons in the gnome-netstatus-applet 2.12.2 within the gnome panel are changing also, this is the new feature track system active interface.

I'm still trying to track down why /etc/resolv.conf does not get updated when I roll back to the ethernet adapter, it gets left as set by the wifi.
