cat - > scanner

# Show scanresults in consistent order with graphical bars. 
# To be run via telnet to WRT54g running modified firmware.
# Do the following. Use your own router address instead of 192.168.1.1 on the following lines
# Login via telnet:
#    telnet 192.168.1.1
# a simple test to make sure you can run this script, type: 
#    wl scan; wl scanresults
# and make sure you can run those commands. If not this program will not work.
# If you succeeded with the scanresults then 
# copy and paste this entire text into the terminal window 
# (the cat - > scanner line will copy the rest of the file into a file named 'scanner')
# and then hit return and then ctrl-c to close the file.
# then just run script by typing the following line:
#    awk -f scanner
#
# I hereby release this into the public domain. Justin Jones, 2005

# Jan. '07 corrected bug from '06 improvement.
