Wireless network in short Wi-Fi network security is the main problem of different organizations and institutes. Most of the criminal activities are done by hacking these insecure networks.
So network admins should try to secure their networks by proper testing. i am going to write about a nice tool inSSider which is FREE, open-source Wi-Fi scanning software It is an open source tools that previously available for Windows like OS only but now it is available for Linux too. It is a best alternative of Netstumbler.

How can inSSIDer do?
