Xirrus Wi-Fi Inspector 2.0 available for Windows 10, Mac
Popular wifi scanner Xirrus Wi-Fi Inspector has finally hit version 2.0.
The release brings support for Windows 10, and introduces the first Mac version.
Compatibility improvements include new support for the wifi standards 802.11ac Wave 1 and Wave 2.
There’s also a Network Vendor column to identify the manufacturer of each network device.
Overall it’s a great-looking tool which displays plenty of information about the wireless networks around you. There are plenty of gaps in functionality (it can generate attractive graphs, but has no way to save them), but also some unexpected extras (simple troubleshooting tests), and the program remains a likeable scanner for the not-so-expert network user.
Xirrus Wi-Fi Inspector is available for Windows 7 and later and Mac.
