Software Request: Wavemon
« on: February 17, 2005, 01:42:38 pm »
I'm trying to get wavemon compiled for pdaXrom to aid in setting up a largish 802.11 network. I'm getting errors in the configure stage (see other thread, "C Compiler Cannot Create Executable"). Has anyone already compiled wavemon? Would anyone with a working development environment be willing to compile it?

Thanks!

Surely Kismet would be a better tool?
You can get signal strength plus a lot more info too.
Or maybe even Wellenreiter?

If Kismet worked well on my hardware, I suppose so, but as I posted in another thread, the build of Kismet on the feeds doesn't work for me. My Symbol wifi card does well to detect the wifi network we've got at the office while standing right next to a WAP. (The Symbol card works well for actual wifi usage, however.)

That's interesting... I've done warwalking with my Symbol Spectrum 24, CackoROM and Kismet with no problems whatsoever. I haven't tried it after switching to pdaX, though.

Although I'm a bit disappointed that the issues with Symbol & B/G networks do not seem to be fixed in pdaX drivers. My connectivity at home (b net) is fine, but at work (joint b/g) it is nearly non-existant. This was fixed on the Windows side by a driver upgrade.

I'm not sophisticated enough to know if it would be an issue with the Kistmet binary or with the wifi driver... but I do know that the Symbol card in question worked fantastically well with Kismet under OpenZaurus, so it cannot be a problem inherent to the card, the Zaurus, or Kismet.

Come to think of it, it probably is the driver, because it doesn't seem to be possible to set the transmission strength* of the card under pdaXrom, while it is under OpenZaurus.

Issues like these are making me increasingly inclined to switch ROMs.



* Yeah, I know, you wouldn't think that transmission strength would affect Kismet's ability to discover networks**, but it does. Maybe the setting does more than the name suggests.



** Or maybe you wouldn't think that. I would.

I had similar problems with the kismet in the pdaxrom feeds, however I installed the ipk from the Kismet website and it works perfectly (See my post [a href=\"https://www.oesf.org/forums/index.php?showtopic=9712&pid=66133&st=0&#entry66133]here[/url]
Try it before you give up on Kismet in pdaxrom..
Good luck,
