Linksys Wireless Network Monitor is a software program developed by Linksys. Upon being installed, the software adds a Windows Service which is designed to run continuously in the background. Manually stopping the service has been seen to cause the program to stop functing properly. It adds a background controller service that is set to automatically run. Delaying the start of this service is possible through the service manager. A scheduled task is added to Windows Task Scheduler in order to launch the program at various scheduled times (the schedule varies depending on the version). The primary executable is named wlmonitor.exe. The setup package generally installs about 14 files and is usually about 4.97 MB (5,212,158 bytes). Relative to the overall usage of users who have this installed on their PCs, most are running Windows 7 (SP1) and Windows Vista (SP2). While about 89% of users of Linksys Wireless Network Monitor come from the United States, it is also popular in Australia and Canada.
