Thread: inSSIDer 2: Compatible Wi-Fi Adapters

  1. #21

    Default

    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!

    First the old question: Edimax EW-7733UnD - Edimax confirmed, Channels 36 to 48 only on 5GHz.

    Then, two new adaptors joined my collection, both work with InSSider (2.0.7 & 2.1.5)on Win7:
    1.: TP-Link TL-WDN3200 Dualband 300MBps, an RT2870-chip-based USB-adaptor. Sensitivity is decent,
    frequency range is limited, it covers CH1-13 on 2.4G, 36 to 64 & 149 to 165 on 5G. Speed is good,
    connection is reliable. AP-mode capable and working, cheap, ca. 18 Euros.
    Verdict: A decent adapter for its intended use.

    2.: DeLock 88540 Dualband 150MBps, RTL8192DU-based USB-Adaptor. Sensitivity is low on 2.4G,
    directional pattern, frequency range is limited, it covers CH1-11 on 2.4G, 36 to 64 & 149 to 165 on 5G.
    Speed is mediocre, connection is reliable. (Supplied driver from March 2011)

    Now the bad things: To get all 13 channels on 2.4G, it is necessary to update the driver,
    which in turn removes the channels 52 to 64 & 149 to 165. That's with the driver
    from the Realtek-homepage dated July 2012.
    In addition, the AP-mode simply doesn't work with both drivers, settings are ignored,
    a short blip on 2.4G CH1 is all there is.
    Seriously?!?
    Realtek seriously needs to get its shit together on that one.
    My verdict here is a clear: Don't buy.

    A general word about 5GHz: I am under the impression, that more and more manufacturers avoid the channels 52 to 140
    to avoid the costs of implementing DFS/TPC. While my D-Link DIR-815 WLAN-Router still works from CH36 to 140,
    newer versions stop at CH48. Same for the Dualband-Range from TP-Link. While congestion isn't yet a problem
    on 5GHz, with 802.11AC it will become one in the future with its 80MHz wide channels.

    Happy to report that DeLorme Earthmate BT-20 GPS (Bluetooth) works perfectly with inSSIDer under Windows 8. Windows configures 2 com ports. Just pick the one that works.

    I'm running inSSIDer Version 2.1.6.1395 on Win XP on a ThinkPad T420 using an Intel(R) Centrino(R) Advanced-N 6205.
    When I select the wireless adapter and click start the application says inSSIDer encontered a problem and needed to close.
