Review RogueScanner

Do you want more control over the devices connected to the same wireless network, whether your home or a company? Then you should know that we can consider several good programs in this regard, although probably few are open source. For this reason, we have decided to stop at RogueScanner, undoubtedly one of the best proposals in this field.

As we were saying, RogueScanner is a free tool that will allow network administrators to control or manage all the terminals connected to it to avoid problems. It is not a bad idea to use this program to detect the possible presence of intrusive equipment connected to your network, which, unfortunately, often happens.

How it works

Once we have downloaded, installed, and run RogueScanner, we will find software that can scan our network, searching for each device connected to it, no matter what type. That is to say, you will be able to find other computers, cell phones, printers, or any other equipment that has access to a wireless network and that is connected to the one you are interested in.

RogueScanner will provide you, once the review is finished, with a kind of report or list, thanks to which you will have access to the primary data related to the terminals in question, starting as it could not be otherwise with the type of device we are talking about, as well as the manufacturer, in case that information is available. Then, other details, such as the IP address and some more advanced ones, also appear.

And what happens if we detect that there are intruder terminals connected to our network? Unlike other tools similar to RogueScanner that only detect equipment that steals our signal but can do nothing to prevent it, in this case, we can block thieves' access to our wireless network. So if you have a neighbor who has wanted to get clever with this utility, you will put him at bay.

And another issue that we liked in this initial approach to RogueScanner is that those reports it generates can be exported whenever we want, generating straightforward text files. This is important because you may not remember if you had the same terminals connected to your wireless network some time ago, and then all you will have to do is compare both saved reports.

RogueScanner's interface is, on its own, quite simple. Except for one or two moments during installation when we can see a bit more color, the overall feeling is that it's all a bit boring. As this is an application that tends more than anything else to give us a hand in managing the computers connected to our network, we value the functionality offered by its design.

Keep in mind

As we mentioned during the review, RogueScanner is a program that can be equally useful to get the best possible management of our business networks and run it at home and see if someone is stealing bandwidth. In either case, it is an efficient software, and although it does not have many more options than the basic ones, it will inform you about what you want to know.

On the other hand, if you have difficulties using RogueScanner, we recommend you look at its Help section, which can show you how to carry out the primary procedures.

The best thing

Undoubtedly the main positive point of RogueScanner is that it not only shows us all the terminals connected to our network, but it will also be possible to manage them in the way we believe to be correct. This is why we emphasized that unlike what happens with other similar tools, it allows us to block intruders, something essential if they are stealing bandwidth.

The worst

The least convincing aspects of RogueScanner are two, although we must admit that neither of them manages to stop it from being a recommendable service. On the one hand, it is only available in English because it would be easier to use in other languages. However, it uses technical vocabulary and is intuitive anyway. And secondly, although there is no lack of management options, some of its rivals are indeed somewhat more advanced in this regard.


RogueScanner is a very versatile tool if you want to manage all the computers connected to a wireless network at home or work and if you want to prevent intrusive devices from stealing bandwidth. With simple options, not too advanced but lightweight and open source, here you have an assistant in this type of task that surely will not disappoint you.
