Description: NetStumbler is one of the first files we added to FilePulse in 2004, but no updates have been made to the program since then. It remains popular, especially for wardriving, but it does not work in Windows Vista.
As a result, the guys at MetaGeek have developed an open-source wi-fi network scanner that is similar to NetStumbler but works in Windows Vista and 64-bit Windows XP. If you need a free wi-fi scanner, give inSSIDer a try.
