Find out who is stealing your wireless internet connection using this free windows software.

Wireless Network Connections are often at risk of being accessed by unauthorized personnel at office or home, when not properly secured. Even if you have secured your network, still there are WiFi scanners which can brute force into the network and allow others to use it. The first thing to do is keep an eye on your Wireless network to see that only your authorized devices use it. Nearlly all WiFi routers have a Client or DNS IP allocation list to tell you that who is connected to Wireless but that option is not very handy for normal users or lacking some user friendly information to track down the culprit. Wirelss Network Watcher gives you that information very easily.

Wireless Network Watcher is a portable tool which scans a wireless network to displays the list of all devices and computers currently connected to it. For every computer and connected device, a list of useful information is provided to help identify intruders which may have accessed your Wireless connection. The available information includes, IP, MAC address, computer name and network card manufacturer’s name. You can also export the devices list in HTML, XML, CSV, and text file format or copy it to the clipboard.

Using this watcher you can always check if you have any unauthorized device using your internet. This software is just a “watcher” application, so it cannot stop them. But once you have information of illegal users you can catch the culprit or configure in your WiFi router or modem to block those particular devices using their Mac address.
