CommView for WiFi PPC is a special lightweight edition of CommView for WiFi that runs on Pocket PC handheld computers. This product is a cost-effective WLAN diagnostic solution designed for express wireless site surveys, as well as capturing and analyzing network packets on wireless 802.11b networks. CommView for WiFi PPC gathers information from the wireless adapter and decodes the analyzed data.
With CommView for WiFi PPC, you can scan the air for WiFi signals, select channels for monitoring, detect access points and wireless stations, capture packets, measure signal strength, view the list of network connections, and examine and filter individual packets. If the packets are WEP-protected, you can decrypt them on-the-fly by entering the correct WEP key.
Wireless network administrators can use this portable solution as a source of important information on network parameters, radio interference, security holes, or rogue access points; which is necessary for deployment and maintenance of WLANs. Although CommView for WiFi PPC is a full-fledged packet monitor and analyzer, it is often feasible to use it in conjunction with the standard CommView for WiFi edition for Windows 2000/XP for far more sophisticated network traffic analysis tools. The most efficient way to use CommView for WiFi PPC is to perform express traffic monitoring and analysis, and then conduct in-depth research using CommView for WiFi on your Windows 2000/XP notebook computer.
