Windows 7: Basic Requirements Before Posting your Networking Thread

I would choose another downloading site for the wireless inspector. It's cnet installer enabled and we all know what that means.

We should edit to have them do the direct download button, or download from the manufacturer here:

Wi-Fi Inspector | Xirrus

Thanks for your feedback... I used to have the download link directly from the Xirrus (Manufacturer) site but due to an update that they did, asking consumers to provider their info. including the Company Name they work for, they are hesitant to download it (see attached image). CNET download site should be okay. Again, I would have...... and my first option, but not for this reason.

Ah did not see that.

Thanks for the explanation

I meant that above statement in a helpful way btw. Just in case it came off as bashing or something.

An alternative to Xirrus Wi-Fi Inspector is inSSIDer for Home | MetaGeek
Edit: Looks as though metageek is monetizing inSSIDer 4
You can still get v3 for free on c/Net downloads (v3.0.7.48) and on Major Geeks (v3.1.2.1)

It doesn't have the built in tests (or at least not in the last version I used), but does provide the traffic, channel, and overlap.

If you haven't tried inSSIDer, kick the tires and take it for a spin to see if it meets your tool requirements.

New to the site as of today, new to windows 7, please go easy on me as i fear most of you will think I'm an idiot. I have a wired/wireless network at home meaning...I have a desk top pc with a wired connection to my modem/router, and then I have a wireless laptop, and my sons android tablet, plus both myself and my wifes android phones. My ISP in Minnesota is Frontier Communications, I have a service provided netgear wifi modem/router. The wired computer is a hp pavillion running Vista Home, my laptop is running Windows 7 Home premium x64 and i need to know how to set premissions for users on the laptop reguarding what they can and can't access on the wired pc running Vista. And I really need help doing the same thing but just locally on the laptop between user accounts that are on it.

Invisible devices

Am trying to connect wirelessly a Samsung Smart TV and my laptop. Both are well connected to the home network but neither sees the other on it, even at 5' distance. The laptop runs 7Pro with Norton 360 security.
Any suggestions will be highly appreciated.
