NetworkConnectLog
Log everything that connects to your network

NetworkConnectLog is a tiny tool which repeatedly scans your network, recording the details of every computer and device as it's connected or disconnected.

The end results can be useful if you're curious about network usage, or perhaps are just wondering whether anyone else is making illicit use of your wireless network. Check the NetworkConnectLog table occasionally and you'll see a list of everything that's connected to or disconnected from your network, including its computer name, workgroup, MAC address, IP address, network adapter manufacturer and connect/ disconnect time.

As usual with NirSoft tools, this data can be saved as an HTML report for easy reference later.

Does it work? NirSoft says that smartphones won't always respond to ARP requests, and so may be incorrectly displayed as "disconnected". And we found that the program sometimes failed to recognise that devices had been disconnected, instead showing them as active. But in our tests it always recognised new devices as they were connected to the network, and that alone is enough to make it useful.

Version 1.11:

Updated the internal MAC addresses database.

Verdict:

A basic but convenient way to monitor devices on your network

WhatsApp Messenger 2.17.31

Free Full Commercial Software

WhatsApp Messenger is the world's most popular instant messaging app for smartphones.

You can use it to send and receive text and voice messages, photos, videos, even call your friends in other countries, and because it uses your phone's internet connection it might not cost you anything at all (depending on whether you'll pay data charges).

It's easy to set up and use. There's no need to create and remember new account names or pins because it works with your phone number, and uses your regular address book to find and connect you with friends who use WhatsApp already.

You can talk one-to-one or in group chats, and because you're always logged in there's no way to miss messages. Even if your phone is turned off, WhatsApp will save your messages and display them as soon as you're back online.

There's plenty more (location sharing, contact exchange, message broadcasting) and the app is free for a year, currently $0.99/ year afterwards.

What's New in Version 2.17.31

• Add color filters to your media. Just capture or select a photo, video, or GIF, and swipe up to pick a filter.
• When you receive multiple photos from the same sender in a row, they'll now be grouped together as an album.
• New reply shortcut: simply swipe right in any message to quickly reply to it.
