       kwavecontrol - monitor wireless link status


       kwavecontrol [OPTIONS]...


       kwavecontrol  adds  an  icon  to  the  KDE  system tray, displaying the
       quality of the current wireless link.  The program polls the  interface
       status at an interval specified by the user, defaulting to 0.5 seconds.

       icon  in  the  taskbar,  from  which  you  can open a configuration and
       extended status dialog.
