NetStumbler

Filed under: Software, Technology — inVINCEble @ 3:14 am

There’s a lot of gadgets out there to help find wireless access points.  They can be handheld devices or small little key-chains that light up when an available wireless network is found.  Well, I found this nifty program that does the same thing.  It is aptly named NetStumbler.  It works best with a laptop that is equipped with a wireless network card.  Once NetStumbler is installed, the user can see all the available network within range.  The program displays information of the name of the network, the type of router, and how much signal strength is from the network.  I have wireless networking in my house but I have certain areas that seems like the signal strength is low.  I installed NetStumbler on one of my laptop and walked around the house with it on.  By doing this, I am able to find weak spots in my house.  I then get another person to help move the antenna around to get better reception.
