1.) The ability to label access points in Chanalyzer. For example, it would be very helpful to be able to create a table that correlates BSSID to hostname so known access points can be more easily identified.
2.) The ability to specify a default wireless network card in Chanalyzer. I have a laptop that I use for spectrum analysis where the default adapter always defaults to a VPN Virtual Adapter. Every time I start Chanalyzer, I have to click the "Stop" button, select to my wireless adapter, and click "Start" if I want to see any information in the Network Table. A .ini file or registry setting to define a default adapter in Chanalyzer would save a lot of frustration.
Does anybody from Metageek actually watch or participate in these forums?
I have not seen a single reply or comment from anybody at Metageek since this was posted three months ago.
The request to be able to add a hostname to the BSSID would save me a TON of time. I can't speak for everybody else, but every time I have to troubleshoot a wireless issue, I spend most of my time trying to determine which access points I am seeing. I have a separate spreadsheet with the hostname and BSSID of all my APs and I have to manually match then up to get a clear understanding of what I am seeing.
It would be EXTREMELY helpful if a column could be added to the Networks Table that would show the hostname of the device. If users had to manually enter the BSSIDs and hostnames in a table so that Chanalyzer would know the hostname, that would be fine.
Please let me know if this is possible because it is the single biggest frustration that I have with the capabilities of the software.
Thank you for your feedback. We've had some transitions here and the forum hasn't received the love it needs. My personal email is trent at this domain. Feel free to send feature requests my way and I'll make sure they get logged.
Yes, we do have a request for mac address aliasing, which I believe is the feature you would like in Chanalyzer Pro. It looks like filters from inSSIDer 2 are almost ready for Chanalyzer as well - I think that will help you too.
As far as Chanalyzer remembering the configuration of the Wi-Fi adapter, that seems pretty simple. I'll log it and see if we can get it updated in the next release.
