I am setting up a Linux based Wireless Access Point.

I am using hostapd command in Ubuntu. Once set up, I will connect the Mobile device.

I am looking for a management tool in Linux or Windows to monitor the Mobile Device. I am particularly interesting in recording the RSSI value.

It sounds like munin might provide what you want, it will run every 5 minutes and save off values to later graph. I see there is an RSSI plugin that might do what you want. If not, writing plugins is very easy.

Thanks, I installed the munin, looks very promising,but the RSSI plugin suggested doesnt work.. This plugin works mainly with Broadcom wireless chipsets. I had a look at the script. I am not aware of the commands for the D-Link Wireless card. Any suggestions.. ?? – Dec 1 '10 at 13:59
No idea... Have you looked at the documentation that comes with the drivers for that card? Or searched google? Sorry I can't be of more help with that, I don't know that card at all. – Sean Reifschneider Dec 2 '10 at 7:03
