When you connect for the first time from a new location, Avanquest Connection Manager automatically selects the best available network. Connect quickly and easily to public WiFi hotspots in coffee shops or airports, in your hotel while travelling, when at home or in the office.

Avanquest Connection Manager detects your preferences for set up of printers, email, disk drives for each location, and saves them. When you come back to a location, with Avanquest Connection Manager, your default printer, email accounts, security settings, your web browser, and others, are automatically configured.

Benefits

By memorizing preferred network connection settings, including internet, Virtual Private Network (VPN), email client, default printer and disk drives, laptop users can seamlessly transition from one network to the next without having to adjust settings or deal with annoying error messages.

In the office:

You are on a traditional LAN, using Outlook, a network HP printer, Internet Explorer, and a shared network drive.

At home:

You are now using a direct wired connection to your DSL broadband, Outlook Express, Mozilla Firefox and a USB connected Lexmark printer.

At the airport or the coffee shops:

You connect through an unsecured wireless connection with just normal Wi-Fi security to download you mail but that’s all.

At the hotel room:

You connect through the hotel internet system through either normal phone lines, ISDN or whatever, using a secure VPN back to your office, using a firewall to protect your company assets.

For each new location or connection type, a PROFILE of the network, email, printer, etc. is saved.

Network Connection Wizard

Connection Manager saves you time by detecting every network available from any location and locates and lists all available wired and wireless networks in seconds. It also shows the current connection strength as well as the quality level of the signal. Connection Manager automatically stores the best way to connect to the Internet. It supports several connection types:

  • Wired: Ethernet, Dial-Up (PSTN, ISDN)
  • Wireless: 802.11x public “hotspot”

Network Profiles Management

Connection Manager’s profiles management feature allows you to save your network settings for the locations from which you connect. It creates a profile each time you connect to a new network and saves the settings for future use. Each profile contains and keeps the following settings:

  • Network types (Supports workgroups and domains)
  • Default printers
  • E-mail box configuration
  • Internet Connection Sharing
  • Internet Explorer default homepage
  • Drive mapping

When a match is found between the available network and a stored profile, or the new network configuration is completed, Connection Manager sets all the necessary parameters:

  • Security settings: SSID, WPA & WEP code (64 and 128 bits)
  • IP Settings: IP address, DNS server, Gateway, Proxy,etc.
  • E-mail parameters: E-mail accounts, SMTP servers, port access, etc.

User-Friendly Interface to Manage all your Connections

Connection Manager offers a very intuitive interface gathering all the information and features you need to simply manage your Internet connection.
The control screen checks the following elements:

  • Time of connection
  • Current network connection bandwidth
  • Current network reception quality level
  • Connection stages

The main button controls security and connection: The “connect/disconnect” button allows you to control your connection and security by getting connected only when you need it. For example, you can save money on your WiFi pass by connecting only to get your emails. You can then disconnect and read them offline at your own speed. Disconnecting will also reduce the risk of getting hacked

  • Manage your profile
  • Connect to a wireless network
