I previously used Netstumbler to detect local Wi-Fi signals and their channels used so I could tailor mine to a use a different channel than the others in my area. I recently got a new laptop with Windows 7 and it has an Atheros AR9285 wireless adapter which Netstumbler shows as an unknown device and will not work with it.

Has anyone else used an freeware alternative to Netstumbler ??

I had found that but it did not mention for use with Windows 7

What's Unique about inSSIDer?

* Use Windows Vista and Windows XP 64-bit


Have you used it with Windows 7 already?

Thanks
