Measure=WiFiStatus can be used to display various attributes of visible wireless networks in your area.
Note: WiFiStatus was previously a plugin measure.
In many existing skins you might see the syntax:
WiFiStatus still works with those forms, and changing existing skins to the new
Measure=WiFiStatus syntax is entirely optional. However, new skins created going forward should use the correct syntax for accuracy and clarity. WiFiStatus is a measure, and not a plugin.
- General measure options
- All general measure options are valid.
This defines what is measured. This option is required. Valid values are:
SSID: The broadcast name for your current connection. While actively trying to connect, you may see a 'connecting...' or 'authorizing...' next to the name.
Quality: Percentage value of the maximum dBm signal strength for your current connection.
TXRate: Theoretical maximum transmit speed in SI (1000) kilobits per second for your current connection.
RXRate: Theoretical maximum receive speed in SI (1000) kilobits per second for your current connection.
Note: WiFi Band and Speed Information.
Encryption: The cipher algorithm being used for your current connection. Possible values are:
GCMP. An unknown algorithm will return
AUTH: The authentication algorithm being used for your current connection. Possible values are:
WPA3-Personal. An unknown algorithm will return
PHY: The supported band for your connection (not your adapter). Possible values are
IR-Band. An unknown band will return
List: Returns a list of all visible networks. The list is automatically separated by line-breaks, so each network appears on a separate line. It can also display the
Qualityvalues next to the the network
SSID, based on the value set in
Only use this if you have more than 1 wireless interface adapter (which may include any bluetooth or infrared receivers). If you do not get any response from the measure with this value at
0, then try other values starting from
2and so on.
This allows you to control what information appears along with the SSID names of all visible networks when
WiFiInfoType=List. Valid values are:
1: SSID @PHY
2: SSID (Encryption:AUTH)
3: SSID @PHY (Encryption:AUTH)
4: SSID [Quality]
5: SSID @PHY [Quality]
6: SSID (Encryption:AUTH) [Quality]
7: SSID @PHY (Encryption:AUTH) [Quality]
Allows you to control the number of networks that are will be displayed when used with
Note: The list will start with the interface with the strongest signal quality.
