Description:

KWirelessMonitor is a small KDE application that docks into the system tray and monitors the wireless network interface. It supports both Linux (tested on several major distributions) and FreeBSD (tested on 5.2.1). The systray icon shows the signal quality and the bit rate using a "bar graph" and a "pie chart", respectively. In the configuration dialog, you can change the bit rate and power management settings of the wireless interface. It is also able to automatically enable power management when using battery power and/or automatically disable power management during data transfer. By default, KWirelessMonitor tries to automatically detect the wireless interface. You can also manually set the interface name if necessary. Starting with version 0.5.91, KWirelessMonitor can connect to a network specified by the user (experimental). For more information, please check out the homepage.




Changelog:

0.5.91:
# Experimental: Added support for connecting to a network specified by the user. User can enter the appropriate network name (ESSID) and click Ok/Apply to connect to the network. (Currently only supports unencrypted networks.)

Note: Tested on Fedora Core 2, Mandrake 10, and FreeBSD 5.2.1, which are supported by distribution-specific code. For other distributions, it falls back to generic code, which _theoretically_ should work. However, given the quirks I have encountered in the above three distributions, there are likely problems with other distributions as well. Please test this feature and report problems if it does not work.

0.5.4:
# After settings are enabled, the previously saved settings are now immediately applied.
# Added menu item for enabling settings.

0.5.2:
# Changed manual power management setting UI: ``Enable'' and ``Disable'' are now push buttons.

0.5.0:
# New user interface for power management settings: manual and automatic settings are now mutually exclusive.

0.4.8:
# Available bit rates are now automatically detected, so now 802.11g bit rates can be selected. (Linux only.)

0.4.6:
# Improved AC status detection with ACPI on Linux.
# Improved quality calculation heuristics on Linux. (Hopefully this will support driverloader/ndiswrapper users who previously encountered "No signal" or similar problems.)
# The status window is now sticky (i.e., appearing on all desktops) and without its own task bar entry.

0.4.4:
# Added timeout heuristic for "automatically disable PM" to improve performance.

0.4.2:
# FreeBSD support for "automatically disable power management during data transfer".

0.4.0:
# Automatically disable power management during data transfer (Linux only).

Pre-0.4.0 features (both Linux and FreeBSD):
# Automatically enable power management when using battery power. (Requires kernel ACPI or APM support on Linux; requires kernel APM support on FreeBSD.)
# Truly transparent systray icons.
# Allow changing bit rate and power management settings from the configuration dialog. kdesu is used to launch a helper process as root.
# Display network name, signal quality, bit rate, and current power management mode in tooltip and status window.
# Auto-detect the wireless interface.
# Display signal quality and bit rate graphically.

 "device error" ?

Looks great... but

I'm using linuxant's driverloader to run my wireless card - works perfectly but when I run wirelessmonitor all I get is "device error" ?

My guess is that driverloader probably only has partial support for the Linux Wireless Extensions. Could you use 'iwconfig' and see whether it displays the quality, signal, and noise values? (The driverloader web site says it only provides signal, not the other two.)

Hi,

Sorry for the delay in replying...

If I run iwconfig I get

eth1 IEEE 802.11-DS ESSID:"MarfieldCourt" Nickname:"localhost.localdomain"
Mode:Managed Frequency:2.462GHz Access Point: 00:0C:41:9B:26:88
Bit Rate=11Mb/s
RTS thr=1600 B Fragment thr=2344 B
Power Management:off
Link Quality:1/1 Signal level:-56 dBm Noise level:-200 dBm
Rx invalid nwid:0 Rx invalid crypt:0 Rx invalid frag:0
Tx excessive retries:0 Invalid misc:0 Missed beacon:0

Also, I don't have any problem running the wireless plugin for gkrellm, all the info is displayed properly.

Ok, so the result confirms what the driverloader website says, i.e. only "signal" is meaningful. However, these numbers should not cause a "Device error". It seems the only probable explanation I can see is that you are using a kernel with wireless extensions earlier than version 11 or using wireless tools earlier than version 22, but this is unlikely since those versions are quite old...

Since I can't test driverloader, could you check a few things?

1. Just to make sure, what's the output of 'iwconfig --version'?

2. What's the output of 'cat /proc/net/wireless'? It should be similar to iwconfig output.

3. What value does gkrellm display? It's probably the signal value or something derived from it.

I'm using NETGEAR WG511 on Mandrake 10.0, and after some tricks came work fine, by other hand when I did the kwirelesmonitor installation, I able to see the monitor whit no signal(all in blank) and PM off, even when I did as well changes into this one.
Any tip or trick for this one ???
Did forget any???

I found something about do a comparation betweeen this 2 files in.

http://www-2.cs.cmu.edu/~pach/kwirelessmonitor/

So...

ls -l /usr/include/linux/wireless.h
-rw-r--r-- 1 root root 27566 Dec 17 2003 /usr/include/linux/wireless.h

And /include/linux/wireless.h

at less have same size:

ls -l /usr/src/linux-2.6.3-4mdk/include/linux/wireless.h
-rw-r--r-- 1 root root 27566 Feb 17 21:58 /usr/src/linux-2.6.3-4mdk/include/linux/wireless.h


some comments ???

regards.

The headers seem to be fine. You mentioned that you needed some tricks to make the card work. Could you explain what the tricks are?

I could not get an IP addres from my dhcp server router, when i was looking into messages file and found that:

when the system is trying to get one uses /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/ifup"

and always got next:

failed; no link present. Check cable?

Is crazy becasue there is no cable present (WLAN, right ???)

So.... I found next lines into /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/ifup script:


if [ -n "$DYNCONFIG" ]; then
echo -n $"Determining IP information for ${DEVICE}..."
# if check_link_down ${DEVICE}; then
# echo $" failed; no link present. Check cable?"
# ip link set ${DEVICE} down >/dev/null 2>&1
# exit 1
# fi

if $DHCP_CLIENT $DHCP_ARGS ; then
echo $" done."

Since i couldn't found "check_link_down" function, the easy way was comment those lines as show you above...

and "done" was the expected word on messages file.

hope this can be useful....

or send me an email: mizraim_diaz@yahoo.com

 constant flickering

 
 by oshogg on: Jul 10 2004
 
Score 50%

Hi,

I like KWirelessMonitor more and more with every new release. My only gripe against it is that it flickers constantly in the system tray. Is it possible to reduce he flickering? It seems to me that you are redrawing it every time, instead of redrawing it only when it really needs to.

thanks,
Osho

To reply to my own question, I implemented a very crude hack to reduce the flickering. It seems to be better.

Here is the patch.

That's a good point. I'll address the flickering issue in the next release.

 Blurry Icon

Great app! Other than the slight flickering, I notice that the icon is blurry, I thought creating new ones and replacing them would maybe fix it, but still looks the same. I did create a slight variation of the original icons, and would be more than happy to send you a link to check them out.

I believe the reason for the blurring is that the icons are 32x32, and they are scaled to 22x22 for the systray. Please e-mail me a link to your icons so that I can take a look. Thanks!

I thought the same, so when I made mine from scratch I made them 22x22, and it's still blurry... unless its just my monitor. I did a very slight variation of your icons, but started a new one this morning, when I get home I should finish and eMail you a link to both.

Yes, it seems that if scaling is enabled, anti-aliasing is done even when the pixmap is exactly the same size. Disabling scaling seems to work pretty well. I'll do that in the next release. Thanks.

I can confirm that the blur in the icons and the flicker both are gone.

How do you like Plasma 5?
 The best KDE Desktop ever.
 Definitely a nice improvement.
 Not decided yet. Haven't tried it yet.
 I do not like some of the changes.
 KDE is taking the wrong way.
 I am still sticking with KDE 3.5.
 I have no opinion, but wanted to vote anyway.
