WiFi Hopper Review

Wireless Network Discovery, Site Survey and Connection Manager Utility


A review of WiFi Hopper by Felix Cheng

In short, WiFi Hopper is an all-in-one wireless network utility which can display information about nearby networks with a site survey tool.

WiFi Hopper allows you to find unsecured wireless networks in your area which is great if you're on the go and need to check your email on an HTTPS server like Google Mail or Yahoo! Mail. Though we don't necessarily suggest connecting to an open wireless network, the option is nevertheless available.

Apart from finding open networks, this WiFi application provides loads of different details with regards to the network setup such as the types of keys used to securely connect to networks. It provides quick access to network SSID, Speed, Mac address, Signal strength, Networking mode, Encryption information and around 20 other pieces of information.

WiFi Hopper is a versatile program and supports all of the modern norms. In addition to being a superb diagnostic tool, it also functions as a connection manager. The connection manager provides far more details than Windows ever could and is certainly superior in terms of information provided to Intel's connection manager.

Overall, whether you're troubleshooting your network or have the desire or need to find out more information about wireless networks, WiFi Hopper is an excellent choice.
