 ====== xfce4-wavelan-plugin ====== ====== xfce4-wavelan-plugin ======
 +Xfce4-wavelan-plugin is used to display stats from a wireless LAN interface.
  
-===== About ===== +  * **[[#Latest Release|Latest Release]]** 
-This plugin is used to display stats from a wireless lan interface (signal state, signal quality, network name (SSID)). It supports NetBSD, OpenBSD, FreeBSD, and Linux.+  * **[[#Release History|Release History]]** 
 +  * **[[#Source Code Repository|Source Code Repository]]** 
 +  * **[[#Reporting Bugs|Reporting Bugs]]**
  
-It shows signal quality as percentage on Linux and dBm on BSDs, hence progressbar will probably +----
-be not really accurate on BSDs, as dBm is hardly comparable to a maximum.+
  
-===== Usage ===== +===== Introduction =====
-Add the plugin to the panel, and select the wireless interface you want to monitor.+
  
-===== Screenshot ===== +xfce4-wavelan-plugin displays the following information about a WaveLAN device:
-{{:projects:panel-plugins:wavelan.png|:projects:panel-plugins:wavelan.png}}+
  
-===== Reporting Bugs =====+  * Signal state (tells if a carrier signal was detected) 
 +  * Signal quality (current quality of the carrier signal) 
 +    * Note that the latter is in % on Linux and in dBm on BSDs. Hence, on BSDs, the progressbar may be never full, as dBm is not easily comparable to a maximum. 
 +  * Network name (current SSID of the WaveLAN network)
  
-Bugs should be reported to the [[http://bugzilla.xfce.org/enter_bug.cgi?product=xfce4-wavelan-plugin|Xfce bug tracking system]].+At the time of this writing NetBSD, OpenBSD, FreeBSD and Linux are supported.
  
-===== Getting it ===== +It shows signal quality as percentage on Linux and dBm on BSDs, hence progressbar will probably be not really accurate on BSDs, as dBm is hardly comparable to a maximum.
-The normal (and best) way to get the wavelan plugin is to use the package manager or port system of your operating system.+
  
-If wavelan isn't available there, or if you want a different version, you can download it in source form from [[http://archive.xfce.org/src/panel-plugins/xfce4-wavelan-plugin/]]. +----
