WifiInfoView 1.45
Find out more about nearby wireless networks

WifiInfoView is a compact tool which scans for wireless networks and displays a host of details on its findings.

This includes all the usual details, of course, like the network name, signal quality and security. But there's also the MAC address, frequency and channel, as well as the network PHY type (802.11a, 802.11g, 802.11n, or High-Rate DSSS). You may even see the router model and name, as well as the company who made it (although this depends on the router itself).

The report also includes the dates when the network was first and last detected, as well as the number of times it's been detected in total. This is great for picking out when something has changed (a new network has appeared, perhaps).

If you're a wifi expert then you can also select a network and see a hex dump of all the information received from that device.

But if you're a little less technical then you can alternatively choose a Summary mode, which drops most of the low-level details and concentrates mainly on the wireless basics.

Version 1.45:
 ◦The 'Security' column now displays the security mode of the network - WEP, WPA-PSK, WPA2-PSK, and so on.... (Instead of Yes/No)
 ◦Added Security Summary Mode.
 ◦The 'Cipher' column now displays more accurate information. (Added TKIP+CCMP value)
 ◦Updated the internal MAC addresses file.

Verdict:

There's nothing too surprising here, but WifiInfoView does provide some useful information on local wireless networks

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.
