The Free WiFi Detector is a versatile scanner for Wi-Fi networks. This utility can be used to diagnose Wi-Fi networks and to determine the channel load within the range of a wireless adapter or access point. With this data, you can easily fix a wireless Internet connection problem within a Wi-Fi range.
The utility interface is divided into 2 parts. A list of all Wi-Fi adapters that are available on the user's computer is shown above. Opposite the list you can see the "Rescan" button. The Wi-Fi networks are scanned automatically every second. But if for some reason you don't have updated information about network activity, you should use this button. A basic table with the RSSI, authentication method, connection, encryption type, signal quality, BSS mode and MAC address is displayed in the center. The very first column of the table on the left shows the Wi-Fi network identifier (SSID).
You don't need to install the program. All you have to do is download and run it on your computer. But it should be noted that if your system does not have a wireless adapter, instead of data about the Wi-Fi network you will see only an empty table.
The utility is quite easy to use. After it is launched, the user will be able to immediately see all the information about the current status of his Wi-Fi network. It will also help you to determine the model of your wireless adapter. If you don't need cumbersome solutions with built-in additional utilities (sniffers, network data analysis software), this application is a good choice as a high-speed and compact Wi-Fi scanner.
