  • inSSIDer

  • Let's face it-- there's SOOO much Wi-Fi everywhere these days, the built-in Wi-Fi tools and free utilities that used to help us understand the Wi-Fi environment just can't keep up anymore. Those tools don't help you see how many access points are in the same network, nor how many SSIDs a specific radio is broadcasting.

  • PRTG Network Monitor

  • An advanced, easy-to-use monitoring solution for your entire network. The software's features include: up/downtime monitoring, traffic and usage monitoring, packet sniffing, failover clustering, in-depth analysis and concise reporting. A user-friendly web-based interface allows users to quickly auto-discover and configure the network devices and sensors they wish to monitor. All common methods for acquiring network usage data are supported: SNMP and WMI, Packet Sniffing and NetFlow / sFlow / jFlow. It also offers SMTP/IMAP Roundtrip-Email Monitoring and VMware Monitoring, VoIP Monitoring, Toplists for Packet Sniffing and Netflow Sensors, as well as sensor aggregation using its built-in Sensor Factory. PRTG Network Monitor includes more than 200 sensor types for all common network services (e.g. PING, HTTP, SMTP, POP3, FTP, SSH etc.), allowing users to monitor networks for availability, speed and failures. As soon as an outage occurs, alerts are sent via email, SMS, pager messages and other means. Request times and downtimes are recorded in an internal database, making it easy to compile performance, downtime and SLA reports. Monitoring, reporting and notifications can be automatically scheduled at specific times. High Availabiltiy is guaranteed by the innovative failover cluster, and remote probes can be used for easy multi-location monitoring. Network maps can be created which provide users with a unique visual network management tool. PRTG Network Monitor's Freeware Edition is completely free for personal and commercial use. The Commercial Editions are required if you want to monitor more than ten sensors. »

  • NetStumbler

  • NetStumbler is a tool for Windows that allows you to detect Wireless Local Area Networks (WLANs) using 802.11b, 802.11a and 802.11g. It has many uses:Verify that your network is set up the way you intended, find locations with poor coverage in your WLAN, detect other networks that might be causing interference with your network, detect unauthorized "rogue" access points in your workplace, help aim directional antennas for long-haul WLAN links & use it recreationally for WarDriving.Does not work well with Win7. This software has not been updated in years and harkens back to Win Vista days. »

  • SmartSniff

  • SmartSniff is a packet sniffer that capture TCP/IP packets and display them as sequence of conversations between clients and servers. You can view the TCP/IP conversations in Ascii mode (for text-based protocols, like HTTP, SMTP, POP3 and FTP) or as hex dump (for non-text base protocols, like DNS). Application can capture TCP/IP packets on your network without installing a capture driver (works only for Windows 2000/XP or greater).

  • NetworkMiner

  • NetworkMiner is a Network Forensic Analysis Tool (NFAT) for Windows. NetworkMiner can be used as a passive network sniffer/packet capturing tool in order to detect operating systems, sessions, hostnames, open ports etc. without putting any traffic on the network. NetworkMiner can also parse PCAP files for off-line analysis and to regenerate/reassemble transmitted files and certificates from PCAP files.

  • WiFi Explorer

  • WiFi Explorer is a tool to scan, find, and troubleshoot wireless networks. It can be used to quickly identify channel conflicts, overlapping and other factors (e.g. configuration issues) that may be affecting the connectivity and/or performance of your wireless network in homes, offices and other sites. It can also be used to find open, ad-hoc and even rogue access points. Additionally, it detects 802.11a/b/g/n/ac wireless networks and supports 2.4 and 5 GHz channel bands, as well as 20, 40, 80 and 160 MHz channels. It can also monitor signal strength of each network over time and export metrics (average, maximum signal strength, etc.) and network details to CSV file format. »

  • reaver

  • Reaver implements a brute force attack against Wifi Protected Setup (WPS) registrar PINs in order to recover WPA/WPA2 passphrases. Reaver has been designed to be a robust and practical attack against WPS, and has been tested against a wide variety of access points and WPS implementations. On average Reaver will recover the target AP's plain text WPA/WPA2 passphrase in 4-10 hours, depending on the AP. In practice, it will generally take half this time to guess the correct WPS pin and recover the passphrase. »
