    I have to agree. Given that it has been decided to have the filter fields permanently displayed, then I would like to see the Donate button moved to the right edge of the tab bar. It would still be...

    Channels 1 to 11 are legally available for use in the US. In most other countries channels 12 and 13 can also be used.

    The reason channels 1, 6 and 11 are so often used is that they are the 3...

    The RSSI is a measure of the signal strength. It is a negative number so the lower the figure the better.

    RSSI is mostly affected by your distance from the access point and whether there are any...

    I think you may have posted the same image twice but nevermind, the RSSI numbers look normal there. The Intel 5100AGN is quite a good card, in fact I'm typing this on an HP notebook with a 5100AGN...

    Hi Kev,

    The RSSI number should always be a negative. Effectively it reflects the amount of signal LOSS between the router and the client.

    So -25 is better (stronger signal) than -50. An RSSI of...

    The AP currently connected is the one highlighted in green in the list section.

    The APs showing 2 channels in use are N devices using channel bonding to get higher speed. They will normally have...

    The streaming problem is consistent with interference, though there could be other reasons. Streaming video is a good test for network stability as it needs a continuous flow.

    It means your AP is running in 40Mhz bandwidth mode. This uses 2 channels to achieve the highest speed.

    In your case it's using channel 2 as the 'control' and 6 as the 'extension' channel.

    Whether you set the SSID to be hidden or not, it is still broadcast at intervals, which is why hiding the SSID as a security measure is pointless. Perhaps inSSIDer is just responding to the...

    The caveat to that though is that, if dennis's relatively poor RSSI is due to intervening walls between himself and the AP, then going to 5Ghz may in fact make that worse. 5Ghz isn't exactly famous...

    Well, unless you live next door to their office, I'd say one of your neighbours is being 'inventive' with their SSID. :)

    If you have a Wireless N router set to use 40Mhz bandwidth then you are indeed using 2 channels spaced 3 apart. Exactly as you see with inSSIDER 2.0. The previous version didn't show the extension...

    Just downloaded 1.9.5.0915. MAC address much easier to read and the vendor now shows correctly as TP-Link for my AP so thanks for those.

    Bonded channels are still wrong though, showing 11+6...

    Given that Google are busily publishing our MAC addresses, SSIDs, GPS coordinates and what we had for breakfast to the whole universe, I'm not too fussed about it :)

    1. The Vendor field is blank for my TP-Link TD-W8960N. Version 1.2.8.03331 shows it correctly as "TP-LINK Technologies Co., Ltd." The beta is reporting the...
