Hi

 

I've got a few wifi issues at the moment, can someone recommend a good free 'wifi sniffer' app for my iPad. I use iStumbler on my mac as this shows all the things I would need, signal strength, channel number etc. But not sure of a good/similar app for the iPad.

 

Regards

Matt

    No, there are no similar apps for iOS.

    It's alredy on your iPad. Open Settings & touch Wi-Fi. Then touch Choose a Network.

     

    Plus there are numerous apps: wifitrak, wi-fi finder, etc. Do a search.

     

     Cheers, Tom

    The apps like iStumbler that show you details about available WiFi networks were pulled a year or so ago. The WiFi "finder" apps currently available just tell you where there are WiFi hotspots base on location. Not quite the same, unfortunately.
