Scan the Wi-Fi networks around you and track their signal strength over time. inSSIDer scans all the Wi-Fi networks within the reach of your computer's wireless card, tracks their signal strength over time, and determines their security settings. You can track open or secure wireless networks, or determine the best channel for your own wireless network.

Use the Networks Table to view all nearby access points and their details.

See Received Signal Strength, Security, Channel, Hardware Vendor, Max Rate, Network Type, and MAC Address for each access point. The columns in inSSIDer's network table can be reordered by dragging its header to the desired position. Each column can also be resorted by clicking the header.

Use the 2.4 GHz and 5GHz Channels buttons to display visible wireless networks and the channels they are broadcasting on. Use the Time Graph to view the strength of nearby access points. You can select one, two, or all three views.

Click on any network listed in the table and the associated time graph line below will become bold in all selected views, helping you identify a single network amongst many. A green WiFi icon indicates which network your computer is currently connected to.
