Netwatch stops updating

By default, this utility uses an internal MAC addresses database stored inside the file, but it's not always updated with the latest MAC address assignments.

You can manually download the latest MAC addresses file from then put in the same folder where WNet is located.

If you turn on this option, you'll get a beep/tray balloon alert only if the device has not been detected before (Detection Count = 1). 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.

Add new option to 'Advanced Options' window: 'Activate the beep/tray balloon alert only if the device is detected in the first time'.

Starting from version 1.15, there is a new option under the Options menu - 'Background Scan'.

When it's turned on, Wireless Network Watcher first make the regular fast network scan to discover all current connected devices.

When you choose to scan specific IP addresses range, Wireless Network Watcher now automatically skips the broadcast addresses, according to the IP addresses/Subnet masks settings of every network adapter.

Fixed bug: Wireless Network Watcher failed to load the external MAC addresses file (oui.txt) when every line has 2 leading space characters.
