These days, there are a myriad of WiFi scanning solutions available and even more apps designed to read packet capture (pcap) files. So why did we make WiFi Scanner? What sets us apart from the rest?
In the latest version of WiFi Scanner we introduced full support for scanning on the 6 GHz frequency band. But this was limited to in-band discovery, meaning that your device could only detect 6 GHz devices if it itself supported WiFi 6E / 6 GHz. With some clever algorithm interpretation, we’ve been able to overcome this hurdle and tackle out-of-band discovery.
You may have heard that USB 3.0 causes some interference issues with wireless devices that communicate over the 2.4 GHz frequency band. Why is this? In this article we’ll dive into the question.
WiFi Scanner now supports scanning with external network adapters. It’s as easy as plugging in your adapter, opening up WiFi Scanner, and selecting the new device from the drop down menu in the top right.
We are excited to announce that WiFi Scanner now supports the 6 GHz frequency band.
Do you want your laptop to automatically disable WiFi when you’ve plugged in to ethernet? There are several ways to go about this. In this article we’re going to walk you through the steps of enabling WLAN switching through your system BIOS/UEFI. We’ll be using a Dell Latitude 7490 for this example.
Do you want to have your laptop automatically disable WiFi when you plug in an ethernet cable?
The word “signal” is used all the time in modern day conversations. What do you say when you’re in the woods and your phone stops working? You’d probably say something like, “ugh, I have no signal!” Almost everyone has an idea of what “signal” is. But what does it really mean?
In 2020, following the new IEEE 802.11ax-2021 standard, the Wi-Fi Alliance announced Wi-Fi 6. This name was a bit of a misnomer, as the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) in the United States had not yet opened up the 6 GHz frequency band for commercial use, so Wi-Fi 6 devices were still limited to the 2.4 and 5 GHz bands.
Several years ago, we wrote about budgeting for a wireless project. Specifically, we wrote about a common question we get from prospective clients related how to budget for the design, installation, and post installation phases of a wireless project? As a follow up to that post, We are going to answer the question we always get next, which is how much does a WiFi survey cost?
