Have you ever noticed that the wireless neighborhood is seemingly always located in the bad part of town? This is especially true in the crowded wasteland of the 2400 block of Megahertz Ave. Where might you find this undesirable neighborhood? Unfortunately, the answer is found in most of the finest office buildings and residential areas around the world. So then, the real question becomes how does someone navigate these areas – or more importantly, establish any type of residency.

In this post I want to introduce you to inSSIDer, a free wireless scanning tool for Windows from MetaGeek. Armed with this tool, a basic knowledge about wireless network infrastructure and a commitment to proactive monitoring, you can setup a wireless network that does not invite trouble even as the neighborhood changes around you.

Keep reading for information on how to use inSSIDer to help navigate even the worst wireless neighborhoods.
