Tools for analyzing wifi in Linux

You can use the “watch” command for “iwconfig” to see how fast the wifi signal is, the signal strength, etc.:
watch -n1 iwconfig
The “n1” means to “watch” iwconfig every 1 second

Also, another more graphical tool I found was called wavemon. You can install it with apt-get or through the Ubuntu Software Center.
