View a detailed list of all the access points your network card detects, plus your connected network. See details such as Status, SSID, the principle channel the network is using, channel width, security settings, supported data rates, MAC addresses plus information such as the time period the access point was first seen and when it was last active. Track the number of dropouts per access point, useful when checking long term stability.
Run extensive tests to measure and graph the stability and speed of your WiFi connection. Help isolate and locate drop outs and the causes of unreliable connections.
WirelessMon can report a large variety of in-depth LAN information (when available) such as:
Statistics information: More than 30 parameters are reported. Including a detailed breakdown of frames sent and received, error counts, transmission retry counters and related low-level data. TCP/IP information: includes adapter MAC address; Adapter device driver name; the IP Address; Subnet Mask; if DHCP is enabled; the Gateway Address and the DHCP server IP address. IP counter information: Network throughput is monitored and displayed. Includes maximum bandwidth available, current send and receive data rates, plus error counters.
WirelessMon can also be reduced to a “Mini window” mode that appears as an overlay in the top right corner of your screen that provides on-going surveillance of your signal strength.
Create Signal Strength Maps (aka heatmaps) of your home, office or local neighbourhood. Determine areas of weak Wi-Fi signal that might require signal repeaters, or areas which are congested with other Wi-Fi networks.
WirelessMon supports GPS for logging and Mapping, though you can create maps without the use of a GPS device.
The HEX mapping functionality uses hexagons to gradually construct a map of the signal strengths of access points. It uses current location and signal strength information to build out a picture of your signal strength.
Measure the performance of the 3D graphics hardware installed on your computer. Supports DirectX 9 to DirectX 12 in 4K resolution, DirectCompute and OpenCL.
With the contour mapping functionality, this map predicts the signal strength around the sample point, building out a more accurate map of your signal in your location.
By adding the location of your router on your map, WirelessMon will calculate signal loss based on obstructions detected. This handy feature allows insight to the accessibility and network speed in every corner of your home or office.
WirelessMon can identify and display channel width. This is visualised in the graph where an access point using 40Mhz channels is displayed as twice the width of an access point using 20Mhz channels.
From version 4 some Garmin USB GPS devices (developed using the standalone OEM USB units) are supported via USB connection.
Windows 7 & Windows 10 support this software.
