We have earlier carried a review of inSSIDer, the freeware WiFi Network Finder and Scanner. It allowed to monitor your wifi connection and those within the vicinity with precision and accuracy.
Xirrus, the well-reputed vendor in the field of Wifi monitoring and bandwidth management, also provides a freeware application with the name Wifi Inspector.
It is an improved version of their free long standing Wifi Gadget application designed for managing and troubleshooting a laptop’s Wi-Fi connection in addition to scanning and monitoring the Wi-Fi environment.
The Xirrus Wi-Fi Inspector is a powerful tool for managing and troubleshooting the Wi-Fi on a Windows XP SP2 or later, Vista, or 7 laptop. Built in tests enable you to characterize the integrity and performance of your Wi-Fi connection. Applications include:
- Searching for Wi-Fi networks
- Managing and troubleshooting Wi-Fi connections
- Verifying Wi-Fi coverage
- Locating Wi-Fi devices
- Detecting rogue APs
