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.

Windows 10 October 2018 Update (build 1809)

Free Full Commercial Software

This is the latest version of Windows October 2018 Update. it's a media creation tool that can be used to upgrade an existing installation of Windows or create installation media for another PC. Just make your choice after launching the tool and it'll do the rest.

What was new in Windows 10, when it was released? The OS brought back the Start Menu, though with a Windows 8 twist: live tiles keep you up-to-date with the latest news while also providing an easy way to launch apps. (Don't worry if you prefer the Start Screen, it's still there and you can boot into it if you prefer.)

Apps now work much more like regular desktop programs. They have minimise, maximise, restore and close buttons, and can be resized (to a degree) and organised however you like.

If you've still lost track of a program in the mass of open windows, a new Task Spaces feature can help. Click its taskbar button and you'll see thumbnails for everything running now, a little like OS X's Mission Control - just click something to switch to it.

Better still, Task Spaces also supports virtual desktops. Add extra desktops as required and it'll display thumbnails of each one, making it easy to identify whatever you're after and switch to it.

There's also smarter snapping, new customisation options, and even a bunch of experimental additions to the command prompt.

Fall Creators Update brings a whole host of new features for Windows 10. See the Microsoft Blog for more information.

The Windows 10 ISO here will give you build 1809 which is the October 2018 Update.
