SoftPerfect WiFi Guard 2.2.1
SoftPerfect WiFi Guard is a network scanner from SoftPerfect that allows you to detect all devices connected to a wireless network. To detect devices connected to a network, the WiFi Guard application scans it by sending requests to it. As a rule, message recipients respond automatically by forwarding network packets with information about themselves back to the sender. Thus, the administrator or owner of the network becomes the owner of such information about all devices connected to it, such as the name, network or IP address, activity statistics by the clock, as well as the physical address of the adapter (MAC), which, moreover, points to chip manufacturer.
The scanner settings allow you to set the frequency of the above operation. The maximum allowable interval is sixty minutes. In addition, the program provides tools for sending information about unknown connections using e-mail messages.
The SoftPerfect WiFi Guard interface is easy to learn and is a stylized window with a small number of shortcut buttons for functions. The main work area is occupied by a table with information about known and unknown devices, which can be retrieved at any time as an XML file.
SoftPerfect WiFi Guard 2.2.1
SoftPerfect WiFi Guard 2.2.1 is a network scanner that allows you to monitor your home Wi-Fi network and find illegally connected intruders. This small but essential utility for any Wi-Fi user, as long as they wish to keep it secure.
At first glance, a home Wi-Fi network does not need additional protection, because access to it is securely password protected. But it is the password that can become a weak point in the network, it can be threatened by brute-force attacks associated with endless password guessing or problems with data encryption. You should not think that a hacker who has obtained access to an unlimited Internet connection in this way does not rob anyone. Using someone else's access to the network, he also gets the opportunity to read the user's email and steal his confidential data.
SoftPerfect WiFi Guard 2.2.1 works simply - in the program settings, you need to set a certain period of time for checking the system, following which the scanner will ping the computer and other devices connected to the network over and over again, and display a complete list of active participants in eating Internet traffic and mark which computers protected from firewall scanning. In the list compiled by the program, allowed devices will be marked in green, and probable intruders who illegally connected to the network will be marked in red. Wi-Fi Guard will immediately notify the owner of the router about their detection by sending a timestamp to the volume indicating the host name visited by the attacker, as well as his Mac and IP address.
The program is distributed free of charge, does not contain adware and runs on Windows, Linux and Mac OS X and does not require installation. To know about all the participants in your home Wi-Fi network, you just need to download, run and configure it.
