As you probably know, LinSSID is a wireless network that can be used to find available graphical software. It is completely open source, written in C ++, using the Linux wireless tools, Qt5, Qwt6.1, it Inssider similar (MS Windows under) in appearance and function.
You can use the source code installation, if you are using a DEB-based systems such as Ubuntu and LinuxMint etc., you can also use the PPA to install.
You can use to download and install LinSSID from this.
Here I use the PPA goalkeeper to install and test the software.
Add LinSSID the PPA and enter the following command to install.
sudo add-apt-repository ppa: wseverin / ppa
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install linssid
After installation is complete, you can start from the menu or the unity.
You need to enter an administrator password.
This is LinSSID interface.
Now select the card you want to connect to a wireless network, for example, here is wlan0, click on the Play button to search for wi-fi network list.
After a few seconds, LinSSID will show the wi-fi network.
As you can see in the screenshot above, LinSSID display SSID name, MAC ID, channel, privacy, encryption, signal protocols and so forth. Of course, you can make LinSSID show more options, such as security settings, bandwidth, and so on. To display these, enter the View menu and select the desired option. Likewise, it shows the different channel signals in signal strength over time. Finally, it can work in the 2.4Ghz and 5Ghz channel.
