Despite the name, the program isn’t just for NETGEAR users. Whoever made your router, you can use the program to check your internet connection, run a speed test, view and be notified of other devices on your network.

A typical home network connects two or three computers, via a wireless or Ethernet connection – useful enough. A Virtual Private Network (VPN) takes things much further, though, by offering the same convenient LAN-like connectivity to many more friends and colleagues, wherever they might be in the world. It’s perfect for everyone from online gamers to businesses with distributed teams, and there’s no easier way to set up a VPN than with Hamachi 2.0.

Wireless Network Watcher is a compact NirSoft tool which can scan your network (wired, as well as wireless, despite the program’s name), and report on everything that’s currently connected.

For every device and computer it uncovers, Wireless Network Watcher will list its IP address, device name, MAC address, network adapter, and (sometimes) an additional description that may tell you what the device actually is (“Your Router”, say).
