Get Detailed WiFi Information with WiFi Inspector

We’ve all been there, some time or the other. You know, those moments of excruciating discomfort when you have people over and a website just won’t load. Obviously someone’s hogging the limited bandwidth, so you have to ask to see who’s connected to the WiFi, but you are met only with indignant denials from all over. You know someone’s connected but you don’t know who. Logging in to your router and checking the list of devices is rather impractical, and no-one like impractical.

Mourn not, for XDA Junior Member LK Interactive Services has a solution in the form of the WiFi Inspector app. WiFi Inspector is a simple tool that scans your WiFi network and gives you a list of connected devices, along with detailed information regarding each in a clean and minimal interface. Additionally, the app allows you to store known devices, allowing you to spot intrusive connections by quickly identifying an unknown device.

Head over to the WiFi Inspector appplication thread to get started and begin identifying your WiFi network intruders.
