What does POCKETWINC do?
With pocketWinc, you can see your entire wireless network at a glance. pocketWinc shows you all the available access points, their SSID’s, BSSIDs, signal strength, status and Internet availability. It also provides you with a “Preferred Networks” list that allows you to specify access points to which you would prefer to connect to automatically.
PocketWinc is a very useful tool for diagnosing your connection to the Internet. Using tools such as the “trace” utility shown here, you can quickly see how your URL request, for example, gets from your Pocket PC to a given Web site.
You can tell pocketWinc how often you want to search for available networks, specify how you would like access point signal strength to be displayed ( % or dBm) – and how you would like to manage the display of unavailable networks, saved lists of networks and notification of new network availability.
Use pocketWinc to specify WEP keys for a given access point. pocketWinc can work with either manually-entered WEP keys or as part of the Cirond AirPatrol Enterprise wireless network management and security system, which automatically, securely and regularly “rotates” WEP keys, or can be used to strengthen WPA.
A handheld computer is a great tool for communicating wirelessly and for remotely managing wireless networks. In recognition of the growing role of Pocket PC-based handhelds as both productivity tools and wireless network management troubleshooting devices, Cirond has developed the pocketWinc connectivity tool designed for the Pocket PC platform.
Get connected fast Cirond pocketWinc is a very convenient tool for quickly finding WiFi networks using a Pocket PC, and also enables web access or email retrieval with a single touch of the stylus. It also includes an Internet detection feature that enables users to instantly determine whether an identified WiFi network provides Internet access.

Analyze your wireless networkpocketWinc also provides extensive wireless network information and is thus a valuable network administration tool for wireless network examination, testing, diagnosis and fine tuning.
