The previous version of WiFi Explorer has been my go to tool for initial analysis of Wireless LANs for many years. Now the Professional version is available it has now replaced that coveted space in my task bar!
Adrian has graciously offered a free trial… don’t even waste your time – just pay the $79.99 and get started using all the great new features!
The new Spectrum Analysis features work with any of these devices:
- Metageek Wi-Spy 2.4x
- Metageek Wi-Spy DBx
- Ubertooth One
- RF Explorer WiFi Combo
- HackRF One (Experimental)
You can even have two so you can do both 2.4GHz and 5GHz at the same time.
This is a highly recommended addition to your toolkit – and another reason for working in MacOS! Order your copy here:
