Editorial review

Mariel Rearte Senior editor

The following review written by one of the Software Informer contributors applies to version 3.1
Wi-Fi Scanner is a free and powerful tool to analyze and monitor wireless networks. The application is able to locate multiple 802.11 a/b/g/n/ac wireless networks providing useful information in real time.
Wi-Fi Scanner is free for personal use, but if you are a network administrator who plans on using this program in a professional capacity, you will be required to buy a business license for $79.95.

By using Wi-Fi Scanner, you will be able to view real-time information about the Wi-Fi networks around you. Along with showing you the name and signal strength of nearby networks, you are also able to see your maximum allowed bandwidth, frequency, security type, and MAC address. Besides, it works as a connection manager, letting you connect/disconnect to networks from within the application and filter connections by quality, security, or network mode.

While this may not be too useful for casual users who only access the internet from their router at home, network administrators can benefit from the detailed statistics, reports, and graphs that this tool can generate. Moreover, it can be helpful in evaluating the safety of open networks. By virtue of giving you the actual ISP or vendor’s name that runs the wireless network, you can prevent sharing sensitive information over fake, dummy networks.

Overall, Wi-Fi Scanner has an easy-to-use interface. All of the information is straightforward and easy to interpret. If you wish to know more about the networks you connect to, this program is an excellent choice. If you are a network administrator, Wi-Fi Scanner is a convenient tool to monitor and analyze corporate wireless networks.
