“Connected SSID” Tab

The tab entitled “Connected SSID” contains information describing the static and dynamic state of the currently connected wireless network. Additionally, it allows the user to toggle interface power (ex: turn off WiFi Radio), disconnect from the current network, and create and Ad-Hoc network through the current machine.

The app supports a multiple interface scenario, whereby the machine could have several IEEE 802.11 wireless interfaces. The popup button on the top left corner of the app allows the user to select which interface should be set as the current interface. By default, the popup button will select the primary WLAN interface for the system.

Create Ad-Hoc

This forms an Ad-hoc network that allows other devices to connect to the user’s device directly.  Power option must be in the ON position in order to create an IBSS.
