    WiFi Hopper - WLAN Scanner and autoconnecter

    I tried searching but I didn't see anything like this. This is my first post in the months I have been lurking. This must mean I am getting smart enough to be an actual useful member! Wow, I hope my excitement isn't premature... I have just stumbled upon this software to scan and automatically connect to WLANs. I haven't used it yet, but plan on playing with it after work. I will let you know what I think of it later.

    http://www.wifihopper.com

    From the website:

    WiFi Hopper is a WLAN utility that combines the features of a Network Discovery and Site Survey tool with a Connection Manager.

    Sporting a comprehensive arsenal of network details, filters, RSSI graphing and built-in GPS support, WiFi Hopper is invaluable for identification and advanced characterization of neighboring wireless devices.

    Additionally, WiFi Hopper can connect to unsecured, WEP, WPA-PSK and WPA2-PSK networks directly from within the application. With editable network profiles and dedicated Connection Manager execution mode, WiFi Hopper can be used as a significantly more transparent replacement for Windows and manufacturer-provided wireless clients.
    Yeah google!

    I dont see it being that much different to what XP SP2 has when you know how to work it.

    only problem with xp is the speed of which it checks for networks. Something faster would be great

    It looks like this app also can tell you GPS coords of where the network is. I tried a similar plugin for NetStumbler and Google Earth, it was pretty cool. Had little icons popping into Google Earth of where wifi spots were.

    Good find, I am glad there is someone out there that cares enough to bring these kinds of things to our attention.

    looks like a niec program.. definitely refreshes faster than xp.. i only wonder how resource heavier it is compared to wireless zero. I'm gonna try it in the car once i get it goin. Only problem i see is you have to set it to hopping mode everytime the program is started.

    Netstumbler isn't a connection manager. It's an auditing tool.
    Failure is not an option....



    It's installed by default on every version of Windows.
