WiFi Explorer’s been Mac’s leading Wi-Fi scanner and analyzer for many years and the preferred choice for many WLAN professionals. Last October, we announced our desire to make WiFi Explorer available on Windows, too.

After making substantial progress during the last months, we’ve made WiFi Explorer Lite, a lightweight version of WiFi Explorer, available on the Windows Store with an introductory price of $1.99 for a limited time, then $4.99 (no subscriptions, no hassles).

WiFi Explorer Lite, also available on the Mac App Store, includes a set of essential columns and lets users quickly discover Wi-Fi networks, including networks in the new 6 GHz band:

• Easy-to-use, intuitive user interface
• Graphical visualization of the Wi-Fi environment
• Supports 2.4 GHz, 5 GHz, and 6 GHz frequency bands as well as 20, 40, 80, 160, and 320 MHz channels
• Supports Wi-Fi 4, 5, 6, 6E, and 7
• Works with 802.11a/b/g/n/ac/ax/be networks

What about WiFi Explorer? Standard features, like advanced details (information element decoding), expert columns (channel utilization, station count, beacon interval, etc.), advanced filtering, etc., have already been ported and are ready to go. We are, however, finalizing a few things and plan to release the first version of WiFi Explorer in the next months, followed by the Pro version by the end of this year*. However, whether you’re a home user or a WLAN professional, it’s worth trying WiFi Explorer Lite!

We would also love your feedback as we iron out some wrinkles, so please contact us if you encounter any issues or have any comments or suggestions.


Notes: Updated on 11/7/2023 to clarify WiFi Explorer Lite for Windows’ cost on the Windows Store.

* WiFi Explorer and WiFi Explorer Pro for Windows will be available on the Windows Store as separate applications, not as updates to WiFi Explorer Lite.
