inSSIDer = NetStumbler for Vista & Win 7 (Windows 7)

In the days of Windows XP, I used a product called NetStumbler to view wireless networks, their relative strengths, and specific broadcast channels.  Since Vista and Windows 7 came a long, I’ve been missing this little app.  Found a new one over at LifeHacker that provides many of the same features for Vista and Windows 7.

* Inspect your WLAN and surrounding networks to troubleshoot competing access points.
* Track the strength of received signal in dBm over time.
* Filter access points in an easy to use format.
* Highlight access points for areas with high Wi-Fi concentration
* Export Wi-Fi and GPS data to a KML file to view in Google Earth.

SSH Tunneling

I just created a tutorial on my wiki page about SSH tunneling. Useful for encrypting all communication between you and home network over the internet. It can also be used to securely tunnel all http traffic through your home network connection.
