Wireless network scanner
I'm new to the iPad, but was wondering if there is an App for scanning local wireless networks?
I only ask because I don't like the network scanner built in the iPad. It doesn't even display things like what channel each network is using, and only displays a couple of detected networks for a very short time. My notebook immediately displays at least 9 detected networks in the same location.
You should try looking under jailbreaking, cydia apps.
I have an iPhone scanner app which was pulled/ejected from the appstore due to private api's, so they do exist.
Quite useful sometimes.....
I may try that at some point. I like having the ability to see what wireless networks are around my house, and their strength, so that I can choose the best channel to set my own router. So far I don't have that ability with the iPad.
