iStumbler – Search WiFi With Ease

Nov 20, 2006 - 22 Comments

iStumbler LogoHave 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)

    Where’s the Win32 version so normal people can use it?

  2. chipdip says:

    Normal people? Most people interested in this don’t use Windows…

  3. Myles says:

    Both your comments make no sense at all. Now..

    Could someone recommend a good Windows program similar to this? So the less fortunate of us can grab some free wifi.

  4. Kane says:

    the windows version is NetStumbler

  5. westyvy says:

    Yeah, why do they bother like this is new or something? I dont use either win or mac, and I have many network tools that will show me strength of netowrks. Back in the day, like 4 years ago, sure, netstumbler was interesting, you can even add a gps feature to it. But now days isnt this just included with the os or the network card driver (when using winblows?). I mean come on, this is old hat.

  10. Donald says:

    The TRS-80 was not from Apple, it was from Tandy, which has since become RadioShack.

  11. Mac/Win/Linux/C64 User says:

    Since, this a Mac OS X program, I’m guessing no one cares about weather you use Windows, Linux, or *gasp* Commodore. Does anyone actually use this? or can attest to the programs ability to detect networks?

    thanks!

  12. lame says:

    this is just a port of netstumbler with some added eyecandy for the apple fanboys. no news here

  13. asoa says:

    I use KisMAC. http://www.kismac.de That’s better than iStumbler.

  14. Max Rubin says:

    The TRS-80 was from Radio Shack,
    It got the unlikley nickname of “Trash 80″.
    Just a play on its name.
    A lot of people had a lot of fun with it

  15. Alex says:

    “Where’s the Win32 version so normal people can use it?”

    dude.. what the hell? seriously, chill.

  16. Yuri says:

    Can someone give link to rapidshare\etc site for the crack???? Also is there win\linux version for normal people and not computer newbies using macs?

  17. ixmil says:

    Yuri, anybody who asks for a win/linux version of a *Stumbler prog probably shouldn’t be accusing others of being computer newbies.

  18. Picket says:

    why is anyone not using mac looking at this?
