Review Xirrus Wi-Fi Inspector
Nowadays, there are many people who, for work or study reasons, have a laptop that they carry throughout the day. They connect to a WiFi network to surf the Internet, download content, view their social networks, etc. The problem is that these networks are generally only available in closed places where we must consume something to take advantage of them.
That is precisely why, over time, many tools have emerged that tend directly to offer us a solution, analyzing the site's surroundings where we are searching for such networks to connect. Of course, the alternatives that we can take into account are varied, although, after a short experience of use, it is possible to affirm that Xirrus Wi-Fi Inspector is one of the best options in this field.
Indeed, if you are away from home and want to connect to the Internet but your laptop cannot detect networks by itself, you need a wireless network management tool such as Xirrus Wi-Fi Inspector. Thanks to this platform, you'll be able to analyze the existence of networks in a larger space than the one your laptop detects by default, trying to make sure you always have a connection available.
Xirrus Wi-Fi Inspector works similarly to radar, and once you open the application and run it, you'll be able to view all the connections available in the area. On top of that, you have all kinds of interesting additional information, such as the strength of each of these signals, the type of network we are talking about, whether it has encryption, and the frequency and channel on which it operates.
While looking for a decent Internet network around you, Xirrus Wi-Fi Inspector updates itself every five seconds, so if you're still walking around with your laptop in your hand, it will always give you real-time information about the existence of networks around you. Of course, once you have connected to one of those networks, it is possible to modify its operation so that it is not bothering you.
And what happens if some of the WiFi networks detected by this tool are not secure? In these situations, you have nothing to worry about because when this happens, Xirrus Wi-Fi Inspector will tell you to be careful. Our recommendation, which already goes outside the application, is that in these circumstances, we do not connect unless it is a matter of urgency.
On the other hand, in case you have detected an available network around you and you have been able to connect for a moment. Still, then you start to experience problems; you should know that Xirrus Wi-Fi Inspector has a built-in system for managing and solving the main problems related to this type of connection that you may suffer.
Xirrus Wi-Fi Inspector also has systems for analyzing our connection speed at a given moment by redirecting to some of the main speed test sites. Thus, if you have doubts about the signal quality you are receiving, this application will clear them up in a second.
The user interface of Xirrus Wi-Fi Inspector, on the other hand, is not bad at all. We are in the presence of a unique design, which differentiates it from any other similar application, which in general terms, is also quite functional. However, you will quickly notice that you may feel a bit overwhelmed by the many available options if you have not used network detection programs. It's just a matter of time before you get used to it.
The main positive aspects we have found with Xirrus Wi-Fi Inspector are the automatic search and constant updating of the Internet networks available to us. To that, we have to add some additional features, such as built-in speed tests or warnings about connections that are not so secure.
Xirrus Wi-Fi Inspector also has some issues that we did not like. The first is undoubtedly related to the fact that it does not have a help section, which especially novice users may miss. At the same time, there are not too many options available when it comes to customizing the user experience when it is true that other similar applications do offer them many times.
In conclusion, we can say that Xirrus Wi-Fi Inspector is an excellent alternative as a system for searching and detecting Internet networks around us, one with a good effectiveness rate and some very interesting complementary tools. It is also true that it is probably not the best option for users without any previous knowledge due to the absence of any help, as we pointed out.
