View low-level stats about your wifi

Dot11expert is a compact tool which displays low-level details about your wireless network adapters and local networks.

On launch the program displays three panels with details about your wireless adapters (name, state, 802.11 types supported), detected networks (SSID, signal quality, authentication, cipher) and access points (MAC address, SSID, channel, RSSI).

A separate graph plots the signal strength of all local networks over time. It's a familiar idea, but not so useful here because there's nothing to indicate which trace on the graph represents which network.

Double-clicking any adapter, network or access point displays a further dialog with additional stats and details.

The Adapter dialog displays MAC and Phy layer statistics including transmitted/ received frame counts, retry counts and multicast data.

The Network dialog gives you the network SSID, type, signal quality and more.

The Access Point dialog displays its MAC address, PHY ID, type, RSSI, link quality, channel, frequency and more.

You can't really do anything with this information - there's no "save to file" option, not even "copy to clipboard" - but there is a log which lists network as they're found.

Verdict:

Dot11expert can display a fair amount of information about your local networks, but it's presented poorly. There's no way to save the data for reuse elsewhere. It seemed to be buggy, too, at least on our test system, with many networks "disappearing" from the list every few minutes.

WhatsApp Messenger 2.18.11

Free Full Commercial Software

WhatsApp Messenger is the world's most popular instant messaging app for smartphones.

You can use it to send and receive text and voice messages, photos, videos, even call your friends in other countries, and because it uses your phone's internet connection it might not cost you anything at all (depending on whether you'll pay data charges).

It's easy to set up and use. There's no need to create and remember new account names or pins because it works with your phone number, and uses your regular address book to find and connect you with friends who use WhatsApp already.

You can talk one-to-one or in group chats, and because you're always logged in there's no way to miss messages. Even if your phone is turned off, WhatsApp will save your messages and display them as soon as you're back online.

There's plenty more (location sharing, contact exchange, message broadcasting) and the app is free for a year, currently $0.99/ year afterwards.

What's New in Version 2.18.11
