    I would like to display the wifi network name that I am currently connected to in the top of my status bar beside the wifi signal bar. Does anyone know if this is possible.

    Thanks,

    Well, you could use MakeItMine in Cydia, then you can change the "iPod" text to whatever you want, but it can't change whenever you connect to a network.

    thanks but

    I am looking for a program that will automatically display the current wifi network name that is currently connected in the status bar.

    I already am using make it mine but that just puts text in the status bar. This request does not seem like it would be difficult for a programmer to accomplish.

    There are technical problems, if you have a name that is 40 chars long:

    BTHomeHub3874059743-908173-689736-872 (or whatever) then it will have to either:

    - Show that in the statusbar (the whole thing)
    - Show it like : BTHom.... which isnt helpful whatsoever (if you have 2 BTHomeHubs
    - Have it scrolling, which most people would find distracting and this would hog a bit of memory.

    So your idea is flawed

    I think this is a good idea. I don't know too many networks that have over 16 characters, much less 40. I have no idea how to do this, but think it is definitely worth someone's time.

    I just googled for this - as I'd love this functionality too. So it gets my vote too if any dev sees this *grin*
