Binary package “wavemon” in ubuntu maverick

Wireless Device Monitoring Application

 Wavemon allows you to watch signal and noise levels, packet
 statistics, device configuration and network parameters of your
 wireless network hardware. It has currently only been tested with
 the Lucent Orinoco series of cards, although it *should* work (though
 with varying features) with all devices supported by the wireless
 kernel extensions by Jean Tourrilhes.
