Wireless Net View

WirelessNetView is a small utility that runs in the background and monitors the activity of wireless networks around you. For each detected network, it displays the following information: SSID, Last Signal Quality, Average Signal Quality, Detection Counter, Authentication Algorithm, Cipher Algorithm, MAC Address, RSSI, Channel Frequency, Channel Number, and more. This is particularly useful if you want to test the signal strength of your networks and to see which networks are on what channel.



On a laptop or connected to a High Definition TV (HDTV), this free software lets you navigate all your personal movies, TV shows, music and photos, as well as streaming content from websites like MLB, Netflix, Pandora, Last.fm, and Flickr from one screen with a remote.
