You need to follow the standard file name convention for modules. The
module HNM.WLAN needs to be in the file HNM/WLAN.hs rather than wlan.hs.
Similarly you will need to rename settings.hs to HNM/Settings.hs. That
way cabal and ghc will be able to find the files.
In the .cabal file you do not need these fields:
Extra-Source-Files: wlan.hs, settings.hs
Instead you should use:
other-modules: HNM.WLAN, HNM.Settings
ghc-options: -fglasgow-exts -O3 --make
you do not need '--make'. Using 'cabal check' or 'sdist' will have other
suggestions for better portability and recommended practise.
