       WiFi Radar - utility for managing WiFi profiles


       wifi-radar [OPTION]...


       WiFi Radar is a PyGTK2 utility for managing WiFi profiles.

       It  will  look  for the config file in /etc/wifi-radar/wifi-radar.conf.
       You can change that in wifi-radar.

       If the configuration file does not exist, it will  create  it,  so  you
       must always run it within a correctly permitted account (as root or use
       sudo or pam).

       Recent versions partially implement WPA-TKIP with  wpa_supplicant.  You
       need     a     running     wpa_supplicant     installation    with    a
       /etc/wpa_supplicant/wpa_supplicant.conf file.  Then by setting in  your
       /etc/wifi-radar/wifi-radar.conf  file  the  "use_wpa  = yes" option and
       "wpa_driver = ipw" for example, wpa_supplicant will  be  launched  when
       you connect using this profile.

       But  currently  you can’t set your wpa_supplicant options like the psk,
       proto,   key_mgmt   etc.   using   wifi-radar.    Your   wpa_supplicant
       configuration  file  should  be  set  and  tested  already. If you have
       different networks set in  wpa_supplicant.conf,  then  you  can  switch
       using wifi-radar.

       The wifi-radar script accepts the following command-line options:


       -v, --version for printing the version.


               See for more information.


       Probably lots!

       Because of repeated scanning, WiFi Radar is very power consuming.
