Aleksandar's computer workshop

Let's see what Aleksandar was fixing today.
My findings, tips & tricks related to computers, internet, programming and other stuff I was working with.

inSSIDer is (much better) replacement for antient Netstumbler

inSSIDer is an free, award-winning Wi-Fi network scanner application for Windows Vista and Windows XP.
It scans networks within reach of your computer's Wi-Fi antenna, tracks signal strength over time, and determines their security settings (including whether or not they're password-protected).

NetStumbler, the most popular Wi-Fi network scanner, is free, but it hasn't been actively developed for years, and it doesn't work well with Vista or 64 bit OS.

inSSIDer, on the other hand, works like a charm on both Vista and XP, 32 and 64 bit, and it's open-source.

This must-have for hunting down Wi-Fi networks on the road.
