PocketWIFI and CentOS-6

Now that I have a laptop I can use on the train I can surf the internet using my Pocket WIFI. This is actually a Vodafone Hauwai E585 with a TPG SIM (Uses the Optus network).
It all works great but I don't get any feedback on the connection status and quality.
I have an app on my phone which does this but I could not find one for Linux so I decided to write one for Linux/Gnome.
Here then is my pocketwifi status applet.
 http://www.chrysocome.net/downloads/pocketwifi-1.0-1.el6.noarch.rpm
  1. Install the RPM
  2. Right click on your gnome panel
  3. Select Add to Panel...
  4. Type in PocketWIFI
  5. Click Add
The applet will automatically detect your route and find the PocketWIFI. It will then query the connection details and download the same status icons which are used on the PocketWIFI screen.


In the future I might add the option to use Gnome icons for  a more consistent look.I might also add support for some other models. If you want your model supported you can drop me an email.
