    Last week, we started a tutorial series on stumbling and sniffing networks in Linux. First we reviewed some general stumbling and sniffing information. Then we looked at a NetStumbler look-a-like, SWScanner. Now we'll continue stumbling with KwiFiManager; which can also serve as your wireless connection manger. Then we'll start sniffing with tcpdump, a command-line utility.

    Stumbling (and managing) with KwiFiManager

    If you regularly need to scan the airwaves for APs and networks, you might consider using KwiFiManager. It not only includes some stumbling and surveying features, but it lets you manage your Wi-Fi connections. This might not be the right tool for a full survey, but it's convenient for quick scans. Since it serves as your wireless manager, stumbling is always one click away.
