    Post inSSIDer 2: Compatible Wi-Fi Adapters

    In general, any WiFi adapter that works with Windows' built-in WiFi manager will work with inSSIDer.

    Adapters are listed by vendor, then model with what they support:

    A means the adapter supports 802.11a 5GHz
    B means the adapter supports 802.11b 2.4GHz
    G means the adapter supports 802.11g 2.4GHz
    N means the adapter supports 802.11n
    If the adapter supports A and N, then it generally supports 5GHz N. If it supports B or G and N, it's 2.4GHz only

    Note: Just because the adapter doesn't support N doesn't mean it won't be able to pick up N APs. This just means it can't connect to N-only APs.

    WiFi adapters reported NOT to work

    Hurray, none yet.

    Please post what WiFi adapter(s) you have tested with inSSIDer and if they work or not.
    Make sure you test with Windows in charge of managing the WiFi

    Smile Linksys WPC600n

    Windows 7 using WPC600n card with "Broadcom 4321AG 802.11a/b/g/draft-n Wi-Fi Adapter" driver

    Ok!: TP_link TL-WN722N (b/g/n)

    (Atheros 9xxx chipset)

    I'm using a Netgear N600 Wireless Dual Band USB Adapter (WNDA3100) and it seems to work fine (though I haven't done any extensive testing -- everything does show up initially.)

    I've also tried a Linksys AE10000 High Performances Wireless-N USB Adapter (Dual-Band) and it kinda worked, but it did not detect wireless networks that were not broadcasting the SSID, until I actually connected to the network.

    Default

    Intel WiFi Link 5350 - 802.11(a/b/g/n) & WiMax 802.16e

    Works great!

  6. #6

    Default

    Siemens Gigaset USB Stick 108, an older B/G-Stick

    TP-Link TL-WRN721N, a cheap chinese made N-lite Stick with a decent performance. (150Mbps) (Atheros Chipset)

    MSI US300EX, a Ralink-based B/G/N-adaptor with 2 removable antennas and antenna diversity. Quite sensitive.
    ( Note: Windows7 does install drivers automatically for this adaptor, but these drivers assume USA as country, which means,
    that channels above 11 are not accessible, despite my Win7 being a german version with its country settings set to Germany
    so use the supplied drivers and use the included utility to set region code 5: CH1-14 to see everything. )

    All three adaptors work from XP-SP2 to Win7-64bit.

    Addendum: At work, a Dell TrueMobile1300 PCI-Card. a little bit deaf on the receiver side.

    Nohab.

    The ALFA awus051NH usb AGN 500mw unit does NOT WORK under Windows 7 32bit with insider 2.1. It does work with my laptops built in Intel 4965AGN however. And yes, windows is set to manage the ALFA and the Intel adaptor was disabled.

    I really love Inssider and I use it all the time with my Netbook at client locations. I am really looking to install Inssider on a tablet of some kind. Does anyone know if Inssider will work on the New Microsoft Surface running Windows 8 RT? Or are there any plans for a version for Android or any other tablets or smart Phones?

    There is an inSSIDer for Android currently available on Google Play.

    Yup, and it runs great on the Google Nexus 7 (which is $200 brand-new, a steal!). As far as Windows 8 RT support goes, I do know that the developers have a couple of them. Stay tuned!
