  1. Nice Work!

    Is there a possibility to monitor wlan0 instead of eth0?

    Greeting from Germany,

    1. Yes and it is very easy: Replace eth0 by wlan0 in file /etc/rpimonitord.conf and restart RPi-Monitor and you are done.

    2. Sometimes the solutions can be sooooo simple ... THANK YOU.
