    Default Suggested software for DBx

    What is the recommended software for Wi-Spy DBx? Will it ask for some license key to work with DBx card? I am asking this because I don't have anything other than the card.

    Can someone please post the download link?

    Chanalyzer 4 and Chanalyzer Pro are compatible with the Wi-Spy DBx. Chanalyzer 4 is free and can be downloaded at www.metageek.net/products/chanalyzer-4/download

    You'll only need a license key if you want to use Chanalyzer Pro. You can learn more about Chanalyzer Pro and download a free 15-day trial at http://www.metageek.net/products/cha...r-pro/download

    Why charge for software as well? We already paid money to buy the card.

    Also chanalyzer 4 (free version) can only show Wi-Fi data or it can show non-WiFi data as well provided I use DBx card?

    Chanalyzer 4 will show Wi-Fi and non-Wi-Fi data. As a spectrum analyzer, the DBx doesn't discriminate between Wi-Fi and non-Wi-Fi signals. It will send the data for any and all RF power it catches as it scans, and Chanalyzer 4 or Pro will display it.

    The difference between the two is the extra feature set of Chanalyzer Pro, which you can see at http://www.metageek.net/products/chanalyzer-pro.

    These extra features require more time and resources to develop and support, so we offer Chanalyzer Pro to those who feel the extra features are useful enough to justify the relatively low cost compared to other spectrum analyzers. If those features aren't as useful to you, Chanalyzer 4 will show the basic spectrum as well as Chanalyzer Pro does.

    Those features indeed require more time and resources to develop and support so our system administrator says he is trying to avoid using them.
