NetworkControl 0.1

NetworkControl is a utility to control and monitor network interfaces, including wireless ones.
NetworkControl is a utility to control and monitor network interfaces, including wireless ones (for which you see a signal strength meter, as shown).

NetworkControl addresses a conspicuous lack in most Linux distributions - most tend to be short on easy-to-use network utilities, even something as trivial as a robust, informative way to log on and off a dialup connection. NetworkControl also provides the connection IP, configuration and statistics (gleaned from "ifconfig" and updated each second), and provides graphic signal levels for wireless interfaces, handy for evaluating a system of wireless devices.

NetworkControl allows you to see network activity at a glance and lets you control your network interfaces in a fast, convenient way. It is designed to be easy to use and informative.

If you have downloaded the binary, just put it in /usr/local/bin, give it executable permissions and run it like this:
networkcontrol

You can make a desktop shortcut with this as its executable target.

If you have downloaded the source package:
Put it in any convenient location.
tar -xjf networkcontrol.tar.bz2
cd networkcontrol.dist
./auto_install.sh

If you don't want the automatic installation or you want to fine-tune the process, instead of running "auto_install.sh", after the unpacking step above, do this:

make -f Makefile.cvs dist
./configure
make
sudo make install

Obviously you may want to modify some of these steps to suit your platform.
