iStumbler – Search WiFi With Ease
Have you ever been on the road with your MacBook, iBook or PowerBook and needed to find a Wireless access point quickly to send a quick email, post an important blog entry, or check the latest news? Me too, and if you don’t have it already – you need iStumbler, because it will make this task much easier.
iStumbler is a very useful utility to scan available WiFi networks, Bluetooth devices, and Bonjour services, and it comes packaged in an attractive polished interface that screams Mac. It also is smart enough to give you signal strength and other information useful for choosing what network to join – all in one place!
(Obligatory warning: In some areas it is illegal to access a WiFi access point without the consent of the owner, so check local laws before hopping on a random network. Tip: most coffee shops offer free WiFi)
