The screenshot is of the "IP Scanner" part of the program not of the main windows. The IP Scanner is only a "tool" in the app!

WinInfoView runs exclusively under Vista / Win7 / Win8, as noted in the System Requirements.
For the diehard WinXP users among us, Nirsoft maintains two equivalent wireless monitoring utilities :

Very happy: I just used this program to help track down the least-used channel in an area with a LOT of wireless connections and a lot of interference. This saved a lot of time, effort and energy (including electricity as multiple devices keep rebroadcasting their data).

I was also impressed by the amount of data it pulled from the various WIFI services in the area. Great program.

Last time I tried it, I was unable to redirect domains to 0.0.0.0 (an invalid IP, I know, but enabling much snappier redirection). Apart from that, it works well -- but there are other similar options.
