Limitations

Poorly performing WiFi and hotspot finder

Nick Mead

Pros
  • Allows you to connect to open networks
Cons
  • Doesn't display all the networks that it should do
  • Not as reliable as AirPort

AirPort Radar is a free and convenient tool for quickly scanning the area for AirPort and other wireless networks. It will work with AirPort cards, MacWireless 11g PC Cards, and 11g PCI cards.

Signal Strength at a Glance

Visual signal meters tell you the strength of the AirPort signal for an easy-to-read radar screen.

Sortable Network List

Click on a category to sort the list of networks by that category.

Click on the radio waves symbol to sort by signal strength.

Connect to Open Networks

By simply clicking on the name you can connect to any network that is not password protected.

Remember Lost Networks

When a network falls "below radar" it won't disappear from your radar screen right away. This is particularly useful when a network is right on the threshold - with AirPort Radar it won't jump on and off the radar screen, it will just turn grey temporarily while it is too weak to connect to.

You can choose how many scans a lost network stays on-screen with the "Scan Memory" setting on the back side of the widget.

Auto-Resizing for Various List Lengths

The AirPort Radar widget will automatically resize itself to accomodate longer or shorter lists of wireless networks.

Installed on Mac OS 10.5.8, 2.53 GHz MacBook Pro 4GB RAM. In an environment with 10 or so WiFi networks, it lists one, with no strength meter, and the wrong channel.

Pros
  • Nice interface, if it worked.
Cons
  • Doesn't work
