Works Really Well

I used this to help trouble shoot WiFi at home. It’s amazing how many WiFi spots you an see in your neighborhood. I used this to help move my WiFi channels away from my neighbors to minimize interference and improve signal quality. Definitely worth it, an essential tool to have. I would love to have a copy on my iPad of mobile troubleshooting.

I absolutely love this app!!!

It gives me useful wireless data about my networks and those in the area. This is a great down and dirty, get to the point, simple wifi diagnostic tool.

awesome BUT never closes (shady alert!)

this is a great program that provides awesome info! it doesnt take up a lot of system resources and is consistant. also, easy to use. simple and clean UI.
*BUT*
the program has a bug that casses it to stay open! it wont close - no matter how you try to close it. it happens 85% of the time. SO FRUSTRATING IT! it acts like malaware or bugged software.. so aggravating. makes me wonder -_- ‘why’ wont it close… hmmm…

anyway
i DONT recommened this. there are other programs that you can buy, that although may be more $, CLOSE lol.
