WiFi-rs

A rust crate to interface and manage Wi-Fi networks.

This is a command-line counterpart of managing networks instead of via a GUI.

Features

  • Connect to a WiFi (Windows, Linux, MacOS).
  • Disconnect from a WiFi network (Windows, Linux, MacOS).
  • Create hotspot (Windows, Linux).

Currently supported network types

Note that only open, WEP and WPA-PSK networks are supported at the moment.

It is also supposed that IP configuration is obtained via DHCP.

Supported Operating Systems

  • Windows
  • Linux
  • MacOS

Example

use wifi_rs::{prelude::*, WiFi};

fn main() -> Result<(), WifiConnectionError> {
    let config = Some(Config {
        interface: Some("wlo1"),
    });

    let mut wifi = WiFi::new(config);

    match wifi.connect("AndroidAPSD22", "belm4235") {
        Ok(result) => println!(
            "{}",
            if result == true {
                "Connection Successful."
            } else {
                "Invalid password."
            }
        ),
        Err(err) => println!("The following error occurred: {:?}", err),
    }

    Ok(())
}
