When you double-click on an AP or a station shown on
the Nodes tab,
CommView for WiFi displays a window that contains detailed data on
the selected node, as illustrated below.
The top pane displays the type, MAC address, and SSID of the
selected node, followed by other key details, such as channel,
first seen and last seen times, etc. This pane uses the same color
that is used to display the selected AP on
and Spectrum pane
of the main application window.
On the bottom pane, you can see Packet
Types and Data
These tables display detailed statistics for the selected channel
based on the packet types and subtypes and on the data
On the left pane, you can see three
displays the signal level for the given node.
The Packets/sec and Mbytes/sec charts
show the number of packets and Mbytes per second sent to/from the
given node. Note that these charts are updated only when the
application actually captures data on the channel on which the
given node is working. This means that if, for example, you are
capturing data on channel 5 and the selected AP is also working on
channel 5, then the charts will be constantly updated. However, if
you are using the Scanner
the charts will be updated every time the application sweeps
through the channel on which the given AP is working.
