Displays extensive information about wireless networks in your area
A review of WifiInfoView by Sven Sørensen

WifiInfoView is a free and simple tool which displays extensive information about the wireless networks around you.

As a portable application, WifiInfoView does not require installation and may be executed from virtually any location.

The interface of the program is divided in to two panels; The first panel includes a list of WiFi networks that are available and the section panel displays vital information about the network like SSID, Element ID and the support rates the router supports.

The top panel of WifiInfoView provides a list that includes important details about the wireless access point like the SSID, signal strength, RSSI, average signal quality, manufacturer, router model, encryption type, etc.

Other details available by WifiInfoView for the more advanced user can also be viewed like the router MAC address, signal frequency, information size and channel.
