Cable is a small wrapper written taking portions of code from GenMac utilities samples and from XWP. It has been written to allow automatic start of XWLan when the lan cable is not connected to your computer. Since OS/2 drivers cannot provide such info, it can work only if the GenMac driver is used for your LAN card (check GenMac for supported chipsets).

Use is quite simple:

    CABLE DriverName|DeviceNumber [ExeName]

where DeviceNumber is the number of your LAN card in GenMac drivers (so it does not necessarily follow the same order used by OS/2, e.g. 0 is not always lan0).
On a notebook you can use

    cable 0 C:\bin\xwlan\xcenter\wlanstat.exe

You can use - as exe name to show current card status: e.g.

    cable 0

will show

    [C:\]cable 0
    Lan-Number      : lan2
    LinkSpeed       : 100 [Mbit/s]
    LinkStatus      : CONNECTED

Cable v. 1.1 (5/10/2010) Readme/What's new
Cable 1.1 =========================================== This software is released under GPL license. Cable is a small program written taking portions of code from GenMac utilities samples and from XWP. It has been written to allow automatic start of XWLan when the lan cable is not connected to your computer. This program will only work with drivers that support the appropriate IOCtl calls. Use is quite simple: CABLE DriverName|DeviceNumber [ExeName] Where DeviceNumber is the number of your LAN card in GenMac drivers (so it does not necessarily follow the same order used by OS/2, e.g. 0 is not always lan0). On my notebook I use cable 0 E:\bin\xwlan\xcenter\wlanstat.exe You can also specify a driver name e.g. NVETH$ instead of a GenMac device number. You can omit the ExeName to show current card status: e.g. cable 0 might show Lan-Number : lan2 LinkSpeed : 100 [Mbit/s] LinkStatus : CONNECTED Installation ------------ Put cable.exe on your path and execute it from startup.cmd.
