  • Free Scanner Application with KisMac

    A wireless network scanner application created for Mac OS X, Kismac offers a wide range of features that has similarities with its Linux/BSD namesake, Kismet. As compared to its Mac competitors like MacStumbler, iStumbler or Net Stumbler, Kismac uses passive scanning as well as monitor mode.

    This program scans networks passively on supported cards which includes Apple’s Airport and Airport Extreme and a number of third party USB cards too such as USB Prism@ and USB Ralink support. It will also work actively on any wireless card as long as Mac OS X supports it
