wmifinfo

wmifinfo is a simple applet showing basic network info for all available interfaces. Why these utility? Beside beside being a excellent desktop Linux offers also a incredible amount of connectivity. If you run things like a http-based content management system, documentation, a defect tracking system or simple a shared drive away from you home base you must connect by ip. You would connect to the DHCP assigned IP shown by wmifinfo like
http://172.23.47.11/bugzilla/
You can change the interface display with left mouse click. If the NIC is a wireless network interface wmifinfo alternates every 5 seconds to show the wireless signal strength and essid data.
In the wireless mode is shows:
  • Link: cooked percentage value of questionable meaning. 100% is good.
  • Level: Level of RF signal measured by your wifi interface in dBm.
  • Noise: Level of noise measured by your wifi interface in dBm.
  • ESSID: Extended Service Set IDentifier.
