Xirrus Wi-Fi Inspector
Monitor and test your wireless network with Xirrus Wi-Fi Inspector

Equipped with a laptop fitted with a wireless network adaptor, you are free to surf the internet from a huge number of locations around the world. But whether you are out and about or connected to your own wireless network, problems can arise and you may be interested in finding out about the status of your connection.

Xirrus Wi-Fi Inspector is a free tool that can be used to search for wireless networks that are nearby. When you are away from home, this provides a handy way to track down the nearest connection by tracking signal strength. At home, the signal strength monitor can also be used to test your own wireless network, checking its range and testing for blackspots.

The program interface is divided into four panels, with the radar giving an indication of nearby networks based on signal strength. The radar readout is something of a gimmick, but provides an easy way to determine relative signal strength at a glance. The Connection panel displays information about the network connection that is currently being used such as signal strength and the IP address that has been assigned.

The Networks panel displays more detailed information about any wireless networks that have been detected to supplement the data in the radar. This panel also provides access to the Locate Mode that can be used to home in on a particular wireless network. The final panel show details of the wireless signal history so you can see how stable your connection is over time.
 

Verdict:

With a wealth of network information and a number of troubleshooting tools, Xirrus Wi-Fi Inspector is a valuable addition to any laptop.

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.
