Windows Live Wifi Center Now Works On Vista

LiveSide reports that version 4 of Windows Live Wifi Center has been released to beta testers, and this version finally supports Windows Vista. I installed it over the weekend (you have to be in the Connect beta to get it, as far as I know, but they say you can request to get in by emailing BellBeta@Microsoft.com) and I like it so far. While it seems like my wifi connection may have dropped an extra time, Wifi Center did a better job of manually restoring my connection than Vista’s regular “Diagnose” did.

The list of new features:

  • Support for Vista (whew, just in timeā€¦ Vista will be publically available in January)
  • Performance improvements
  • Reduced the amount of time it takes to first load the application
  • Reduced CPU usage
  • Quality Improvements.
  • Ability to install on non EN-US operating systems.
  • Several Connectivity and Managing Network issues resolved.
  • Resolved some timer issues and fixed the Last Connected Time in Connection History.
  • No more Splash screen. Since the load time is faster it was no longer necessary.

About the screenshot: What’s the little heart symbol for? I’m not that cute.
