script to Auto connect to Open 802.11 wireless AP's

Contents

wifiweasel

wifiweasel v1 - once run this script takes control of the wireless interface, then detects and connects to strongest open wifi AP in the vicinity. Subsequently it checks the connectivity every X seconds. If the connection fails, the whole process repeats itself; this requires the timeout script below (needs to be tested with multiple AP's - might have an iwconfig essid glitch).

timeout

Added a timeout script to keep udhcpc from hanging up everything. As we all know, dhcp should not take 60sec; if it's not obtained a reply or a lease within a few seconds, you are likely not going to obtain an IP (perhaps due to range issues, mac filtering, etc).
