    LinSSID Alternatives

    LinSSID is described as 'is graphically and functionally similar to iwscanner (Linux) and Inssider (Microsoft™ Windows®). It is written entirely in C++ using Linux wireless tools and Qt4' and is a Network Analyzer in the Network & Admin category. There are more than 10 alternatives to LinSSID for Windows, Mac, Linux, Android and Android Tablet. The best alternative is inSSIDer. It's not free, so if you're looking for a free alternative, you could try Wifi Analyzer or NetSpot. Other great apps like LinSSID are Vistumbler (Free, Open Source), Kismet (Free), WiFi Scanner (Paid) and WiFi Explorer (Paid).
