WiFi Manager 2.0.4
It seems that Google fixed the significant problems with activation that were happening all of July. And so, here it is, a new version, 2.0.4.
This version has a few bug fixes, as well as a new widget size, 4×1, which shows your device-to-router connection speed.
There are a quite few devices already that have 802.11n WiFi chips in them, and are capable of establishing WiFi connections at speeds higher than 54 Mbps. One of these is my HTC Incredible S, shown in the screenshot below. The Incredible S correctly reports the actual connection speed (checked at the router management page), which is then shown in the widget. Some other devices that are capable of high speeds with 802.11n always report 54 Mbps to the program (my Sony Ericsson Xperia Arc is one of these).
So, if you like this feature, and your phone is one of those that can connect at 802.11n speeds, but you always see 54 Mbps in the widget, please report it to the manufacturer / firmware author so it can be fixed.
One other change is that there is now a setting to select which widget sizes you’d like to see in the launcher. Android requires that multiple widget sizes are implemented as separate widgets, and the Launcher’s widget list can get too long and uncomfortable. With this in mind, you can now select which widgets sizes you’d like to see in the Launcher’s widget list.
Detailed changelog for version 2.0.4:
- Fixed dns2 after the program is reloaded.
- Added a warning about IP address switching in Android 3.0.
- Added a 4×1 widget with WiFi link speed (most devices report 54Mbps).
- Added settings to select which widget sizes are shown in the launcher.
