    Wireless Monitor Apps


    Hello All,

    I'm searching for a wireless monitor to show me the signal strength and WAP's available to me. I have yet to find one that works. I tried the built in one that comes with Gnome, but it wont find my card (even though the card does work). I was wondering what everyone else has had success with. I am running a Cisco Aironet 340 card, 2.4 kernel, Gnome 2.4. Any help is greatly appriciated. Thanx!

    Peace,
    John

    I can't get either of them to work. I tried kismet, but it didnt show anything. Airsnort did the same thing. I can't seem to find any error messages to help me fix whatever went wrong. Any help, or other suggestions are welcome. Thanx.

    Peace,
    John

    I think that you'll have to set the mode of your card to monitor. You can use iwconfig to do this, but you may have to have a hacked driver to allow this mode (the airport does).
