This shell wrapper around wpa_supplicant inject custom wifi settings into running wpa_supplicant. More informations about topic can be found at Advanced_Wifi page.

#!/bin/sh

## This is wrapper around wpa_supplicant binary.
##
## version 0.0.1 proof of concept
## no responsibility, no warranty, works for me (Veer 8G, WebOS 2.1.2), YMMV
##
## author: Matej Zagiba
## license: any version of GPL
##
## Installation and usage:
## 1. turn off wifi
## 2. connect to Your WebOS device and copy original binary file:
##    # cp /usr/sbin/wpa_supplicant /usr/sbin/wpa_supplicant.real
## 3. put this file on wpa_supplicant's place and rename it:
##    # cp /media/internal/wpa_supplicant.wrapper /usr/sbin/wpa_supplicant
## 4. put customized config in /media/internal/.wpa_supplicant.conf
##    or any other convenient place. Remember - passwords are stored
##    in that file. Update configuration file location in WPA_CONFIG variable
## 5. from http://packages.debian.org/wheezy/wpasupplicant download package
##    with correct architecture (HP veer uses armel) extract wpa_cli binary
##    and copy it in place e.g.:
##    # cp /media/internal/wpa_cli /usr/sbin
## 6. correct permisions:
##    # chmod 755 /usr/sbin/wpa_supplicant /usr/sbin/wpa_cli
##
## Installation is now completed
##
## All networks defined in original wifi application will continue working
## and can be managed through original interface. Network settings in custom
## config file will overwrite definitions in built-in application.
## So for any configuration change in custom networks edit configuration
## file by Your favorite editor
##
## To use it:
## - first define new network(s) in the configuration file,
##   use any option You wish, use wpa_supplicant config file format:
##     every option on single line
##     "network={" and "}" and comment also on single line,
##   best way for now is to export settings from another system
## - then turn on wifi
## - from WiFi Preferences applet select "Join network" and enter name of the network
##   You just configured, select security type - Open
## - Enjoy new wifi connection
## - If there are more than one network in the area, pease turn wifi off and on between
##   each new network definition in GUI
