Who Is On My Wifi version 2.2.0

Version 2.2.0 of Who Is On My Wifi was released this morning.

This release fixed bugs related to the new Online System, and fixed a long standing problem with Blocking not working on Windows 8.

Blocking now works on Windows 8

In the latest version of Who’s On My Wifi, we’ve enabled blocking for Windows 8 computers.  The problem happening on Windows 8, was that our 3rd party networking library, WinPcap, had not been updated to be compatible with Windows 8 yet.

So, in our latest release, we have included the latest version of WinPcap, which is WinPcap 4.1.3.  This latest edition works fine on Windows 8, 7, XP, etc.

If you are running Windows 8, when you click the Block button now, it should ask you to install the latest version of WinPcap, and you shouldn’t have any problems.

However, if you are running Windows 8, and had previously installed WinPcap 4.1.2, you should probably UNINSTALL WinPcap 4.1.2, before installing the new WinPcap 4.1.3

If you are running Windows 7 or XP, and are currently running WinPcap 4.1.2 that we previously asked you to install, then you don’t need to do anything.  We’ve checked that our latest version of the software is still compatible with WinPcap 4.1.2, so you can just leave it alone and just update Who’s On My Wifi as you always have.

Online Bug Fixes

There was a persistent bug with people using the new Online feature where if they let their computer go into Sleep mode, when they started it back up again Who’s On My Wifi would give them an error about “Invalid Session”.  This was incredibly annoying.  So, we removed this error message, and if Online disconnects for some reason, we are having the software Auto-reconnect to online without you having to do anything.

We also fixed an error where the Online system as unable to detect the Local IP address of the computer running Who’s On My Wifi that was necessary for diagnostic purposes.

There were also several bug fixes and enhancements to the Online system itself made based on user feedback, and we’ll continue to enhance and update the Online system without you having to do anything.
