WMWLMON(1)		FreeBSD	General	Commands Manual		    WMWLMON(1)

NAME
     wmwlmon --	Wireless Monitor wmdockapp

SYNOPSIS
     wmwlmon [-Dhvw] [-i interface] [-s	scrolling] [-display display]

DESCRIPTION
     wmwlmon is	a wmdockapp which shows	the state of a wireless	network	inter-
     face.  In the title you see the network interface name and	a led showing
     if	the interface link is active.  As next you see the signal strength
     from the conntected access	point in dB (decibel).	The bar	shows the sig-
     nal strength in percents.	If the bar is full, it means that you have the
     full throughput of	the bandwidth displayed	in Mbps.  As next you see the
     channel number.  A	red lock shines	if WEP is enabled.  The	last line
     shows the network id.

     If	no interface is	set at startup,	wmwlmon	scans all initialized inter-
     faces until the first wireless interface is found and uses	that.

OPTIONS
     -D	     Debug mode.  Instead starting a wmdockapp,	the data is sent to
	     stdout.

     -h	     Prints short listing of wmwlmon options.

     -v	     Shows version.

     -w	     Enable WaveLAN compatibility.  If a device	is named wi* it	gets
	     recognized	as WaveLAN device automatically.  Otherwise you	can
	     force WaveLAN compatibility by this option.

     -i	interface
	     Set interface.

     -s	scrolling
	     Network id	scrolling.  If a network id is to long to display in
	     the wmdockapp window it will be scrolled by default.  The
	     scrolling types are:

	     -s	0	   Disable scrolling.  Long network id's will be cut
			   down	to 8 characters.
	     -s	1	   LCD scrolling (default).  The network id moves from
			   left	to right separated by a	space.
	     -s	2	   Bounce scrolling.  The network id moves from	left
			   to right and	bounces	back from right	to left.
	     -s	3	   Fade	scrolling.  The	network	id moves from left to
			   right, fading out and begins	again.

     -display display
	     Set display name.

CAVEATS
     As	I can't	test wmwlmon with every	wireless chipset for which a driver
     exists, because I don't have them all, it is most possible	that with some
     chipsets the behavement of	wmwlmon	is wrong, or some informations are
     missing.  If you have such	a chipset causing troubles, please report me,
     including a dmesg and a problem explanation.

     Full supported devices known yet:

	   ath(4)
