WIFI Studio

WIFI Studio is an 802.11 (WIFI) Scanner for Windows Vista, much like Netstumbler but for Vista and Windows 7.0.

Screen Shot

Features over the standard included scanner in windows Vista:

  • Ability to connect to a particular access point by MAC address. This feature is useful say when there are 5 access points with 'linksys' as the SSID, but they're not really part of the same network. Vista assumes all like-named access points are part of the same network.
  • Trace window that lets you see what's going on inside Vista's auto-connect logic.
  • Graphic history of signal level for each visible access point.
  • And much more.
Possible features if I get donations:
  • Better multi-adapter support
  • GPS Logging
  • Security testing features such as test durability of encryption by cracking the WEP key.

  • Removed non-working tcp-settings menu. It will come back soon I hope.

    This window has many active keys and mouse buttons, experiment to discover.

  • Windows 7.0 Support.
  • Reworked code base for stability.
  • better handles multiple interfaces.
  • Added numerous features, too many to list.
  • Pre-Alpha test version of "set tcp/ip params", please ignore menu item now.
Please report bugs to : mimeticsoft@gmail.com.
Make a $20 donation. Donations are what prompts me to spend more time developing the product. As a bonus, in the donation checkout page there is a location where you can specify a feature request. I'll do my best to integrate said feature if feasable. The more you donate, the harder I'll try to get the feature in :) Feel free to send as little as $5 for a junior registration (1 user 1 version on 1 pc).
