WiFi Dongle communication

Recommended Posts

Hello, i would like to monitor my whole wifi network using my wifi dongle Asus USB-N13 dongle. The idea is to get whole information about wifi environment. So it basically means to write an app that will show me names of all access points around and their signal strength. I was not able to find any good example how to obtain this information, or how to communicate with any wifi modules.

I'd say the Windows native Wifi library seems like a starting point. I've never used it in LV but it works in other languages, so you will only need to match the data types :)

wlanapi.dll is in System32 (or SysWOW64).


Other ways could be reusing high-level open-source library that pretty much do all the job. ManagedWifi is quite famous for that:
