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.

 how to install ?

 
 by jeanmm on: Dec 19 2004
 
Score 50%

I generated this soft from source in mandrake 10.1 , but impossible to start it ! Is it necessary to indicate a special folder during generation, or later is there a special way to start it ?

I tried to lauch it in a user console, but the only effect was to loose other icons in the tray !

Can someone help ? thanks in advance ;)

I've just discovered that :
- installation path is /usr/local/kde/bin which must be appended to $PATH because of kwirelessmonitor-helper utility,
- when launching kwirelessmonitor there is an "invisible" icon put into the tray, and clicking with the mouse on it gives access to it's configuration. It's obvious that if the soft is started multiple times it will occupy the whole system tray, pushing other icons out of view... funny joke.

When you build the application from source, have you tried the following?

./configure --prefix=<your_KDE_base>

This should put all the binaries and icons in the right place when you do "make install". That way, the application should be in your $PATH, and it should be able to find the icons correctly.

hello,
I found out that for Mandrake 10.1's applets the prefix should be here /usr in order to get the same kind of files at the same location.
Thanks. ;)

Hi...

is there an ebuild available for this one ?

by the way, is this only a monitor, or it actually can connect to network and get an IP ?

There was an ebuild for an earlier version, but there isn't one for the current version...

The current version is a monitor that can also change the bit rate and power management settings. The next version (coming soon) will add the ability to connect to a specified network.

I've just released an experimental version that supports connecting to a network specified by the user. Please test this feature and let me know if it does not work. Thanks!

 Wrong reporting?

 
 by Skrot on: May 6 2005
 
Score 50%

Hi.. I'm using KDE 3.4, wireless-tools 27, and latest KWirelessMonitor.

iwconfig eth1 reports link-quality:
Link Quality=46/100

While KWirelessMonitor reports:
Signal 83%

Isn't this wrong? Or is link-quality and signal two different things?

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.
