Wi-viz on Tomato router

    Can Wi-viz be made to work under Tomato?
    Wi-viz: Wireless Network Visualization

    I was going to go ahead and try it, but I got stuck copying the required files into the router's /usr directory (read-only file system).

    Is there a way around this, or would it have to be compiled into an offshoot version of Tomato?

    There is really no practical way to do this, since it is very picky about where it is physically located, makes gross assumptions about the underlying HTTP server, and has heavy reliance on shared libraries (that aren't part of Tomato).

    It could be integrated by a modder into a custom build, but only with very significant effort and re-engineering, which doesn't really seem worth it.

    That having been said, it does look pretty cool. *LOL*

    Hmmm... that's what I thought. Maybe I will send a suggestion to Jon that he integrate it himself into a future version of Tomato.

    Thanks for the quick reply...

    I used it a few times on a recent build of DD-WRT and didn't find it that impressive. Nice-looking, I guess, but the Wi-Fi AP survey in Tomato works just fine.

    When I first saw it, I was impressed. But after a while watching various AP's swirling around in a random fashion and nor seemingly associated with the correct clients, I now look upon it as useless bloatware. Nice but useless. As an aside, it would be nice to see a display of clients in a similar fashion to the survey mode. That would really assist us in conducting site surveys for AP installation. Presumably, there would be only a very small code change needed and a new choice in the GUI ... ???? Anyone?

    No need to pollute tomatoes with dd-wrt stuff. Lets not forget the reason why we love tomato in the first place.
