Network Stumbler  0.4   Download Now  

Network Stumbler is a packet sniffer for wireless networks. It supports wireless network cards that use the Hermes chipset, including Lucent, Dell True Mobile, Compaq WL 110, Elsa Airlancer and several others. We have installed but not tested this version, since our wireless card was not compatible. This version is currently in beta testing.


Requiring Windows 2000, XP or newer, NetStumbler functions best with a supported wireless card. Determining precisely which cards are fully supported can take some sleuthing.

NetStumbler fully supports cards based on the Proxim 8410-WD and 8420-WD, which have most commonly been sold under the names Orinoco Classic Gold and Orinoco Gold. Other cards based around this chipset include the Dell TrueMobile 1150, Compaq WL110, and Avaya Wireless 802.11b PC Card. Also supported are cards based on the Intersil (now owned by Conexant) Prism and Prism2 wireless chipsets, such as the popular D-Link DWL-650. Unfortunately, there is no single comprehensive source of information on wireless card chipsets and retail models. Seattle Wireless maintains a wiki, and NetStumbler hosts user-submitted compatibility reports, although they do not indicate which chipset a card uses.

Wireless cards which are fully supported in NetStumbler are able to report accurate noise and signal strength levels. The latest 0.4 version of NetStumbler partially supports most wireless cards, but those without full support will not be reliable for noise and strength readings, and may cause instability in NetStumbler itself.
