Indispensable

Permet davoir toutes les informations nécessaires sur les réseaux WiFi environnants, sans avoir à ouvrir un terminal, permet un coup doeil rapide.

Complètement inefficace….

Ce produit ne scanne que le canal sur lequel le Mac est connecté… En gros, et pour faire court : aucune utilité !!!

efficace

Très rapide et efficace pour 1,59 Euros. On peut même copier le résultat dans un tableau. Jennifer

Complet et déjà trés bon

Scanne parfaitement tous les réseaux 2,4 et 5Ghz, nombreuses indications et graphes en temps réel. A ce prix, Bravo !

Trop lent à réagir !

Lapplication nest pas mal faite mais souffre de lenteurs extrèmes lorsquil sagit de répondre aux clics de souris. Il en résulte une mauvaise interprétation des ordres qui finissent par aboutir à un blocage de lapplication. Je narrive pas, par exemple, à sélectionner les réseaux wifi qui mintéressent et en afficher les graphiques. Cest du tout ou rien. Si je dévalide simplement "graphique de tous les BSSIDs", plus rien ne saffiche et il est également très difficile de ne valider quun réseau à la fois. Je conserve toutefois lapplication en espérant quil y ait prochainement une mise à jour qui résolve ces problèmes. Utilisé sur iMac avec OS X 10.8.2 mountain lion.

Très bien

Fonctionne parfaitement sur mon Macbook avec Maverick, montre tous les réseaux en 2,4 et 5 GHz, et est régulièrement mise à jour.

A M A Z I N G
