Support for logging in to an email system with a username and password before being able to send email has been added.

Who's On My Wifi version 1.0.9

Version 1.0.9 of Who's On My Wifi was released today.

This version did not add new functionality, but was actually to fix 2 bugs that had been detected.

Bug #1.  The uninstaller bug.  Multiple users had mentioned that primarily on Vista and Windows 7, the Uninstaller would hang and not do anything.  This was because the Who's On My Wifi program was still running, and the Uninstaller wasn't sure how to remove a program that was still running in Windows 7 and Vista.  The Uninstaller has been improved to close down all related programs.  Uninstalls and Upgrades should now be much smoother.

Bug #2.  Decryption Event bug.  This was a particularly strange bug having to do with a very unique Registration Code.  All Registration Codes used in Who's On My Wifi are cryptographically strong, but this very unique Code caused issues with the decryption itself.  Very Strange, but it has now been corrected in this version.


Who's On My Wifi version 1.0.8

Who's On My Wifi version 1.0.8 was released today.

The following features were added:

No. 1.  A new middle tier version of Who's On My Wifi is now available.  Who's On My Wifi Professional is now available for $49.95 and a new version called the Ultimate version is now available for $199.95.  Previous Professional customers have been upgraded to the Ultimate edition free of charge.

The new mid-level Professional version can detect up to 50 computers.  This should be enough for small businesses, large home networks, and vpn remote offices, but at a reduced cost from the Ultimate edition required for larger networks.

No. 2. The manufacturer of the Network Interface Card of each computer/wireless router is now detected by the software.  This is very helpful when first trying to identify which computer is your wireless router as the average Linksys router has a "NIC" created by Linksys-Cisco.

Please notice that the manufacturer is only detected when a new computer is found.  If you are upgrading from version 1.0.2 or 1.0.7 to the newest version 1.0.8, you will need to click on the "Remove" button and find the computer again to see the Manufacturer.

No. 3. The program's settings are now backed up when the software starts.

No. 4.  The Settings screen looked slightly different than the rest of the main program with regard to it's background color.  This has been changed to make the program look cleaner overall.

Remember that the best way to upgrade from version 1.0.7 is to "Uninstall" the previous version and then download and Install the newest version in the same location.  Don't worry, all settings including Detected computers will remain the same after the upgrade.


Who Is On My Wifi version 1.0.7

Who Is On My Wifi version 1.0.7 is ready to be released.

Version 1.0.7 contains the following upgrades.

1.  Added the ability to give a computer that has been detected a Description.  This is so once you've correctly identified a computer, you can give it a name that is easier to remember.

2. We've decided to increase the Home Edition limit from 10 computers to 20 computers based on user feedback.

3. Cleaned up the overall look of the Settings page.

4. Added the option to Minimize Who's On My Wifi on startup so it will just run in the System Tray when a computer restarts.

5. Added a Detail View to the Computer Scans.  This way, the things most people are concerned with still show in the regular Scan page and are highlighted Yellow for Unknown computers, but a more in depth analysis of what is going on with the computers is listed in detail to the left of the scan.

6.  Disabled 2 copies of Who's On My Wifi to be running at the same time.  When 2 copies are running together, they can interfere with each other's scans.  This bug has been fixed

7. Removed the message box every time someone clicks the "Close" box on Who's On My Wifi.  It now reminds people 1 time that Who's On My Wifi hasn't shut down, but is running in the system tray.  After this initial notification, it does not notify you again.

8.  By default the log files are now stored in a new \logs folder.  Also made logging optional.

Who Is On My Wifi v1.0.6 release

We just finished the release of version 1.0.6 for Who Is On My Wifi.

We weren't planning on having an additional release to the large 1.0.5 update so soon, but there were a few bugs that customers pointed out from the 1.0.5 update that we wanted to address quickly.

The first change was that customers had mentioned that the initial registration reminder was really annoying because Who Is On My Wifi starts up with Windows.  Because of this, we decided to get rid of the initial registration screen.

The 2nd change was somewhat of a surprise.  With version 1.0.5, we added a section in the software for when people are uninstalling it to give them the ability to let us know what changes they would like to see in the software.  Although, this seemed like a good idea, by automatically opening up a webpage during the uninstall, we were basically annoying people who had downloaded the software which was never our intention.

We've modified the uninstall comments, so that now, by default, nothing happens, but if a potential customer would like to let us know how to improve the software, they have the option.

And finally, the third update had to do with the default subnet that is detected by the software on a new computer.  It was defaulting to include something called a broadcast IP address.  Including this "broadcast" address caused some false positives to show on the initial detection scans.
