Captures internet packets and allows you to monitor the sources. Color codes the packets as well. I read what the color codes mean, but I haven't had time to analyze exactly what the mean yet to figure out which requests I must block.
You must download WinPCAP 4.12 at http://www.winpcap.org for it to work with Windows 7. It comes with WinPCAP 3.1, but WinPCAP 3.1 is incompatible with Windows 7.
Oh, for anyone else who is interested, if you start a capture and it appears that you are not intercepting any internet traffic, go into the "Capture --> Options" and either check or uncheck the promiscuous mode. If you are still unable to capture packets, then go into "Capture --> Interfaces" and make sure that you are trying to capture packets from the correct interface (I had to do this last step because I wasn't capturing any packets initially). I also opened an internet radio station to make sure that packets were being exchanged.

Updated on Jul 26, 2011*promiscuous* Sorry, misspelled. Easy thing to do : )
Still works with WIN7.
Works with WIN7 but you have to update WinCPAP manually.
I've used Airsnare since 2004. I tried installing it to WIN 7 and it didn't work and gave errors. Then, I upgraded WinCPAP to 4.12 (from WinCPAP.org) and it works fine again. Although the Airsnare installs WinCPAP, it is an older version. Since Airsnare hasn't been upgraded since 2006 (way before Vista and WIN7), you will need to download and install the WinCPAP upgrade that works with Vista and greater manually.

Great review! I was able to get Airsnare to work with Windows 7 on my computer because of your review. However, I had to download WinPCAP 4.12 from winpcap.org (not wincpap.org); but, without your review, I wouldn't have known that I needed the newest version.

None with Win 7
Doesn't work with Win 7

When downloaded error message pops up and says missing components..
May be a bad link. Looking for alternate download site.
never got a chance to use it
contains the virus
found it with spyware doctor
nothing to see
does not work
does not work
After first launch on ethereal the program will launch and work on Air Snare as well.
A few restarts later both programs fail to recognize the network card.
I don't understand what the information is that it is showing me.
I rated this product as "good" because, I'm sure this product is good for people who understand more about IPs and MAC addresses, not me.
This program would open and scan quickly. However it would then throw up what seemed like ID numbers, which would be fine if I knew all the ID numbers for the machines allowed on my network, but I don't. It also seems to pick up any wireless router in range, and since I live in an apartment, there are quite a few.
The option for the program to talk to you is interesting, though the voice is really creepy and robotic, I could probably turn it off but haven't.
Like I said, it's probably fine for more advanced users, but it's not very intuitive for a beginner, someone who just wants to see what is on your own specific network. I don't care what's going on on other networks with other routers, I just want to watch over mine.
It keeps track of your mac addresses, and lets you know if an unknown mac address tries to access your network.
Includes winpcap, ethereal, and airsnare. You must know all of your mac addresses to use this (computers, routers). Had to download a missing file from my puter to get it running, but after finding it on some dude's website, I got this thing working
Does what it says, but from what I understand, it's a lot of work for something someone can bypass by cloning one your mac addresses.
i have not been able to run it
i keep downloading it and keeps telling me that i missing a file it wont work
