This option is useful for Windows 2000/XP, because if the ARP cache is not cleared, a device might be displayed as connected even when it's not connected, because the ARP information is taken from the cache of Windows operating system. On Windows Vista/7, this option is irrelevant, because the ARP scanning is not affected by the cache.

What's New in version 1.20:

  • Added 'Put Icon On Tray' option. When it's turned on, icon of Wireless Network Watcher is added to the system tray of Windows.
  • Added 'Tray Balloon On New Device' option. If it's turned on, Wireless Network Watcher displays a tray balloon when a new device is detected.

What's New in version 1.15:

  • Added 'Background Scan', under the Options menu. When this option is turned on, Wireless Network Watcher make a continuous background scan to automatically discover new devices or computers that connected the network, without activating the scan again. The background scan is slower and less intensive then the regular scan, so it won't overload your computer.
  • Added 'Beep On New Device' option. When the background scan is turned on, you can use this option to get a 'beep' sound when a new device is detected.

What's New in version 1.10:

  • Added 'User Text' column, which allows to enter your own text for a specific computer/device, from the Properties window (Alt+Enter). The text that you write will be displayed for the same device in future scans. (The devices information is stored in the .cfg file of Wireless Network Watcher)
  • Wireless Network Watcher now displays the first date/time that the specified device was found, and the number of times that the device was detected. (The information is saved in the .cfg file)
  • When there are multiple IP address blocks on a single network card, Wireless Network Watcher now scans all of them (In previous versions, it scanned only the first IP addresses block)

What's New in version 1.05:

  • Fixed Wireless Network Watcher to scan the entire network when the subnet mask is not 255.255.255.0, for example, if the subnet mask is 255.255.254.0, Wireless Network Watcher will scan 512 addresses. For now, it's limited for up to 4096 IP addresses, to avoid from very long scanning.
  • Improved the scanning on slow computers or slow networks.
