Requesting Wavemon WiFi monitoring software
Closed, WontfixPublic



This is the best Wireless monitoring software, I know of. I use it for planning and measuring of effective access-point and channel distribution. It is basically for my Notebook or PC.
The only similar software, I found in the Solus repositories is horst, which lacks the "scan window" for a quick overview of every WiFi in the neighborhood. Also the user experience and data presentation of Wevemon is absolutely excellent, especially if you are used to one of the similar Android Apps.

Yes, Wavemon is distributed under the GPLv3.

Isn't nmcli device wifi list enough?

nmcli device wifi list

... is better than nothing, but it isn't detailed enough, doesn't offer constant updates and has no detailed information about the current connection.

Packaged and installed it locally, but it doesn't seem to work well with my Wireless Adapter.
Device-2: Realtek RTL8188EUS 802.11n Wireless Network Adapter type: USB driver: r8188eu

There is nothing displayed in Levels section.

Probably someone with laptop can test it.

How it should work it is explained here

This has sat in accepted for inclusion for over 30 days. Clearly, there is a lack of demand for the inclusion of this software, nobody has stepped up to provide a completed patch, maintain it, and properly integrate it. Closing as a result. Feel free to reopen but only when someone offers a patch via our proper patch submission methods and volunteers to be maintainer.
