InSSIDer works with both ATA and USB connecting devices as well as with the older Windows networks. This is achieved through a plug and play mechanism using the Windows driver infrastructure. The scanner basically performs the same task as the SSID command station, except it doesn't require the hardware to be attached. As you connect your items, such as printers, scanners, or other devices which need to be in a specific network, the scanner will detect the SSID, determine if the channel is occupied, and if not it will try to detect another channel to connect to. The whole process is seamless and simple enough to allow you to quickly and easily manage multiple wireless connections while still taking care of security, mobility, ease of use and cost efficiency.
What is InSSIDer? InSSIDer is an easy to use networking utility for Windows Vista and up to Windows 7. This utility allows you to find and select the best network connection for your use (i.e. what country you are in, whether you are on a dial up connection or a cable broadband connection, what time zone you are in, what network hardware you are using, what MAC address you have, and what security protocols are used). Once you know these factors, you can then enter your MAC address, select your channel (i.e. whether you are on a dedicated intranet or a WAN) and enter your network's strength.
