Wi-Fi Guard: Protect & secure your Wi-Fi network from unknown devices

Now a days every one of us has a Wi-Fi network at our home or at the work place. But have you ever cared about the security and protection of your Wi-Fi network? Most of the routers comes with advanced security and protection, but they can still be hacked using an external device such as a phone, tablet or a laptop.

Wi-Fi Guard

Wi-Fi Guard is a free utility that lets you protect your Wi-Fi network very easily.  It always notifies you when a new device is connected to your Wi-Fi network. If you recognize the device then you can mark the device as known, else you can view the properties and mac address of the unknown device. The software scans your network and gives you results in real-time. It automatically scans the network after intervals of time that are chosen by you. And after every scan it notifies you about the unknown devices the software has discovered.

The UI of the software is very simple, minimalistic and very easy to use. All the options are aligned properly in the top menu bar. The list and details of devices in your network is listed in tabular form. You can view the IP address and MAC address of a device by clicking on properties button, you can even view host name and add comments about the device in the comments text box.

You can customize the scanning options by choosing the rescan network time interval and number of devices to be simultaneously scanned. You can also minimize the software to the system tray and set it to run at every Windows start-up.

    NirSoft has a little freeware utility called “Wireless Network Watcher” which does essentially the same thing.

    SEE: http://www.nirsoft.net/utils/wireless_network_watcher.html

    For whatever that’s worth. That doesn’t diminish, of course, how clearly cool is “Wi-Fi Guard.” Thanks for the tip.

    There are several other Wireless/Wi-Fi-related utilities there, on the NirSoft website, too. Be sure to check them out…

    …however, as long as I have the reader’s attention for a moment: Trust me when I tell you that no “umbrella” utility which packages into one interface all of the coolest and best freeware Nirsoft and SysInternals (and Windows-native, too) utilities out there is better than KLS Software’s freeware “Windows System Control Center” (WSCC).

    SEE: http://www.kls-soft.com/wscc

    I wouldn’t even try to use any of NirSoft’s (or SysInternals’) stuff, anymore, without WSCC. It’s unbelievably cool; and by downloading it first, and then properly configuring it (that part’s critical), and then letting it go out and find and download all NirSoft and SysInternals stuff, I don’t even, anymore, need to visit the NirSoft or SysInternals websites. I just let WSCC figure out what I need, and keep me up-to-date. Of course, I also need to keep WSCC up-to-date because any given version of it cannot detect any NEW utilities from either NirSoft or SysInternals; and so whenever any such new utilities emerge, KLS updates WSCC. So the trick, simply, is to always keep WSCC up-to-date, and then let it occasionally check for both new NirSoft/SysInternals utilities, and updates to old ones. Ahhhh. [grin]

    DISCLAIMER: I have nothing, whatsoever, to do with KLS, NirSoft or SysInternals. I’m simply a long-time end-user who knows a good thing when he sees it, and is unabashed about sharing.

    Anyway, again, thanks for the “Wi-Fi Guard” tip. Very cool.
