Question Help needed installing Wifi Radar

I need some help installing Wifi Radar (from I am relatively new to Linux, well I have used it for nearly a year but I have not done anything adventurous with it, recently I have bought a laptop and I have installed Linux on that and I was intending to use it a lot more like for web browsing.

I have got all my devices like my wireless card working but I need a program to make it easier to change between wireless networks because I take my laptop to work every day and I have to manually change settings from my home network to my work network (both wireless)

I found Wifi Radar but I need some help installing it. I have read the readme file but don't really understand it. (I usually try to find RPMs which I find easier to install using the Install Software thing) I have never really got far when trying to compile from source.

Please could someone tell me step-by-step instructions on how to install it (bearing in mind I am new to installing from source so please keep it simple)

Many thanks

I'm not the best but here is the general idea.

Once you have extracted the files to a dir
you go to that folder and then type the following at the command promt.

make install

and that will get you through most installs.
