My biggest problem with SHR is the settings dialog appears to be largely

scripts for the settings modules would probably help. Any info?

You can find my bitbake recipe for wpa-gui here  and a package here . There are also my changed files in wpa-roaming.tar and and a README in . I have been using this setup for months now with connections to WPA(2) PSK, WEP and unencrypted networks with dhcp and static IP.
