WirelessMon 4.0 Build 1008

WirelessMon 4.0 Build 1008

Detect, monitor & map (incl. GPS) wireless networks (WiFi) including channels.

WirelessMon is an intuitive software that can be used to detect Access Points (AP) on any wireless network within range, and to monitor them. The program provides substantial information regarding each SSID it locates including whether the AP is secure (or not) and its availability for use. A live 'channel usage' chart provides information on the level of traffic for each available channel.

This information will assist network managers by indicating channels that could be used to reduce interference and improve throughput. Users of the Professional Edition will have the additional bonus of being able to generate 'coverage maps' based upon the signal strength of all detected APs.

To use this function, users need to import a map created by an another application (e.g. scanning). Once the map is loaded, users can either plot points manually on the map, or use a Global Positioning System (GPS) device. If done manually, the user selects a point on the map and the program automatically stores information on every AP it can detect there.

GPS users need to establish two reference points, then they can leave it to the program to detect their location on the map and store the AP information for each point. Network managers, laptop users and wardrivers will all find WirelessMon to be the perfect tool for their wireless network requirements.
Here are some key features of "WirelessMon":

· Verify 802.11 network configuration is correct.
· Test WiFi hardware and device drivers are functioning correctly.
· Check signal levels from your local WiFi network and nearby networks.
· Help locate sources of interference to your network.
· WirelessMon supports the MetaGeek Wi-Spy (2.4i, 2.4x and DBx) useful for finding interference from non 802.11A/B/G/N devices transmitting on the same frequencies
· Scan for hot spots in your local area (wardriving)
· Create signal strength maps of an area (also known as heat maps)
· GPS support for logging and mapping signal strength
· Mapping can be performed with or without a GPS unit
· Correctly locate your wireless antenna (especially important for directional antennas).
· Verify the security settings for local access points.
· Measure network speed & throughput and view available data rates.
· Help check Wifi network coverage and range
· A feature-rich, value-for-money alternative to NetStumbler.

· 64 MB RAM
· 15 MB of disk space
· Compatible 802.11 wireless adapter(s).


· 30 days trial period
· Nag screen

What's New in This Release: 

· Added support for the newest version of the MetaGeek Wi-Spy DBx
· Added support for connecting to hidden networks when SSID is known
· Added support for sending security passphrase from WirelessMon during the connection process in Vista/7/8 rather than requiring windows to display the key entry dialog in the system tray.
· Fixed a bug that was preventing connection to access points when specifying a MAC address
· Changed behaviour where if an access point was set to use WEP/WEP64 WirelessMon was displaying WEP-104/WEP128. This is due to observed behaviour in Windows Vista/7 that only WEP (key of any length length) is reported by Windows (not WEP-40 or WEP-104) no matter what WEP setting is used in the router. Now WirelessMon will only display "WEP" unless extra information is available.
