Wireless Network Watcher 1.71
Quickly check all the devices and computers that are currently connected to your wireless (and, maybe, wired) network

Wireless Network Watcher is a compact NirSoft tool which can scan your network (wired, as well as wireless, despite the program's name), and report on everything that's currently connected.

For every device and computer it uncovers, Wireless Network Watcher will list its IP address, device name, MAC address, network adapter, and (sometimes) an additional description that may tell you what the device actually is ("Your Router", say).

And the report can be saved for future reference as a plain text, XML, CSV or HTML file.

.As well as being useful for basic inventory purposes, Wireless Network Watcher can also be a handy security tool.

Click Options > Background Scan, then Options > Beep On New Device, and the program will regularly scan your system, looking for new devices (like a neighbour trying to make use of your internet connection, for instance).

And the Advanced Options dialog (press F9) allows you to customise this even further, setting the frequency you need for the background scan, and optionally telling Wireless Network Watcher to launch a particular program whenever a new device is detected.

Recent changes include:

Version 1.71
    ◦Added 'Always On Top'.
Version 1.70
    ◦Added 'Reset Selected Items Counter' option.
Version 1.68
    ◦Added /cfg command-line option, which instructs Wireless Network Watcher to use a config file in another location instead if the default config file, for example:
            WNetWatcher.exe /cfg "%AppData%\WNetWatcher.cfg"

Verdict:

Wireless Network Watcher is another compact NirSoft tool which delivers just what you expect, quickly providing useful information on everything connected to your network

Ashampoo Burning Studio 2013 (v11.0.6)

Free Full Commercial Software

Ashampoo Burning Studio 2013 is a compact, simple, but surprisingly feature-packed disc burning suite.

The program makes it easy to create simple data discs and audio CDs, for instance: just drag and drop your files onto the list area and you'll be burning the finished disc in a couple of clicks.

That's just the start, though. Burning Studio 2013 can also create data discs with customised, interactive multi-page menus, perfect if you'd like a more professional way to share and present the disc contents.

A built-in backup tool allows you to create backups which may be encrypted, compressed, and span several CDs, DVDs and Blu-rays.

And there are modules to create VCD or SVCD video projects; burn video DVDs or Blu-ray discs from prepared folders; create, browse or burn disc images (ISO, CUE/ BIN and Ashdisc formats are supported); copy discs, erase them, design and print disc covers, labels and booklets, and more.

The focus throughout is on ease of use, though, and so Ashampoo Burning Studio 2013 remains very straightforward, whatever you're doing. Most disc projects are created via the same simple interface, and for the most part all you have to do is drag and drop the necessary files. But experts will find more advanced options are only a click away, and if you need to then you can set ISO and UDF version, enable Joliet, make a disc bootable and more.

Note the download here will take you to the Downloadcrew Software Store where you can download Burning Studio 2013.
