I was unable to run apps like WiFi Analyzer, I guess because of Android's lack of direct access to the network drivers? I'm assuming this is something inherent to emulation, but it would be great if this could be overcome.
I expect that's the case. If VMware and VirtualBox are any indication, BlueStacks is probably running a limited NAT router to prevent / block misbehavior by the host OS. This is a shame as there are some excellent, easy, and free networking tools out for Android.
