Is there a PC equivalent for the Android ‘Wifi Analyzer’ App? [closed]

I'm using the Wifi Analyzer app on my phone a lot at the moment as I need to set up and test some wireless networks. For people unfamiliar with the app, i've posted some screenshots of the app that I found on the internet.

I'm looking for some software that will do the same or similar thing, but on a PC. I've looked on Google, but could not find anything of use.


Answer 1:

there’s a few – inSSIDer is what i prefer – though i often use meraki’s wifi stumber at client’s systems wifi stumbler seems to have been EOLed – something about it written in java IIRC.

For linux linssd is a very similar application that seems to work alright

Answer 2:

Also useful is Xirrus’ wifi inspector:

The Xirrus Wi-Fi Inspector is a powerful tool for managing and
troubleshooting the Wi-Fi on a Windows XP SP2 or later, Vista, or 7
laptop. Built in tests enable you to characterize the integrity and
performance of your Wi-Fi connection.

Application includes:

  • Searching for Wi-Fi networks

  • Managing and troubleshooting Wi-Fi connections

  • Verifying Wi-Fi coverage

  • Locating Wi-Fi devices

  • Detecting rogue APs
