1st, I have no interest in "hacking" signals.gm10 wrote: ⤴Fri Sep 07, 2018 2:52 amAZgl1500, just stick with us here. You are a good guy, but many people just want to get work done. Kali is not what you are looking for. They are not looking for you, either.
If you want to "monitor" Wifi connections (I take it you want to hack your neighbor's wifi) then you can do that with Mint, too. But my heartfelt recommendation to you is: just don't.
What got me to looking is my local ISP's modem which is DSL has a problem with the WiFi radio.
it just simply goes away for a few seconds, or minutes.... then I have to access my Win7 PC which is on a LAN to that DSL modem, and reset the WiFi radio......
I am having to do this every day, and sometimes several times a day.... if I quit using my laptop, it seems that the modem just decides to put the WiFi "to sleep" and drops the carrier strength.... and the speed capabilies go into the toilet. case in point, today, the best rate is 6.04Mbps, yesterday morning, it was 1.01Mbps
I can reset the modem's WiFi radio via the LAN connection thru the Modem Manager, and it will return to the normal 11.04 Mbps and stay that way as long as I keep the WiFi connection busy.
Here is a screenshot of http://www.speedtest.net/results for my DSL modem's WiFi radio over the past few testing sessions.
The peaks that go above the 11Mbps line are from my Verizon 5g/4g MiFi modem... VZW gives me much better service than the AT&T DSL does by far, but I can't afford to use it all the time.... my plan is 4gB/month and it don't take long to chew that up.
My cellphone has tools that aren't on my laptop, as of yet anyway.... looks like this, and I have to use it to see what is going on.... is it my laptop, or is it the modem?
this is my cellphone's WiFi monitoring tool.
so, can anyone point me to a tool that gives me a "monitoring tool like this" ?
