I would like to monitor the wifi signal from the asus 1215n laptop on my turtlebot from the dashboard node. Is anyone else interested in this option. If no one is willing to work on it, where should I start? Maybe there is some code for the Pr2 I could look at to get me started in the right direction. Thanks in advance :)

The PR2 is a fairly unique case because it uses a Linksys WRT610Nv2 access point as its wireless client, and signal information isn't reported to the dashboard.

You may be able to find useful code, frameworks or ideas in the linux networking stack, but the documentation there is pretty sparse. I would start by digging through the wpa_supplicant_node to see if it's useful or not.

I don't know of anyone else that is working on this at the moment.
