 +===== Introduction =====
 +
 +xfce4-wavelan-plugin displays the following information about a WaveLAN device:
  
-  * **[[start#Latest Release|Latest Release]]** +  * Signal state (tells if a carrier signal was detected) 
-  * **[[start#Release History|Release History]]** +  * Signal quality (current quality of the carrier signal) 
-  * **[[start#Source Code Repository|Source Code Repository]]** +    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. 
-  * **[[start#Reporting Bugs|Reporting Bugs]]**+  * Network name (current SSID of the WaveLAN network) 
 + 
 +At the time of this writing NetBSD, OpenBSD, FreeBSD and Linux are supported.

 +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.
