Improve or secure an existing WLAN, track down new WLANs: small tools will quickly help you with these tasks. PC-WELT presents the best.
These free programs improve your WiFi
If you are on the move with a notebook or netbook, WLAN tools can help by searching the area for wireless networks. For example, with the inSSIDer Office program they are listed much more conveniently and clearly than with the standard Windows tools. These WiFi search tools also help when it comes to setting up your own WiFi optimally: If the connection between the notebook and WiFi router breaks down frequently, this may be due to insufficient signal strength with which the laptop can transfer data from the WiFi Router receives. With the WLAN tools, you can display the signal strength and reposition the WLAN router or notebook for better reception.

With the free Wireless Network Watcher you can keep an eye on your network. The tool makes it easy to see all of the computers and devices connected to the network.

All WLAN programs presented are also free of charge. They are also not only more convenient than the Windows standard tools, but also help, for example, with problem solving. You can use the heat mapper to find out where your apartment has the best WiFi reception and where it is still weak. In the red areas you can then consider upgrading – for example with WLAN repeaters. Alternatively, set up the router differently – so that your apartment is covered as well as possible with WiFi signals.
Our tools also take care of the security of your WiFi connection. Because a good password is mandatory, especially in the WLAN area, there are special programs that support you in creating the perfect password. Because if you choose a password that is too short or too simple, hackers can crack it all too easily and break into your WLAN. The security enhancers also include VPN tools that you can use to establish a tap-proof connection to your home in the hotel WiFi.
