    From here you can easily detect the Wifi-Networks as well as there info surrounding your device. This can be achieved by using the "WifiManager" in a following way :-

    package com.example.wifidetector;

    import java.util.List;

    import android.annotation.SuppressLint;


    import android.content.BroadcastReceiver;

    import android.content.Context;

    import android.content.Intent;

    import android.content.IntentFilter;



    import android.os.Bundle;

    import android.view.Menu;

    import android.view.View;

    mport android.view.View.OnClickListener;

    import android.widget.Button;

    import android.widget.TextView;

    public class MainActivity extends Activity {

    StringBuilder sb = new StringBuilder(); WifiManager mainWifi; List<ScanResult> wifiList; WifiReceiver receiverWifi; Button mainText; TextView textView; @Override protected void onCreate(Bundle savedInstanceState) { super.onCreate(savedInstanceState); setContentView(R.layout.activity&#95;main); mainText = (Button) findViewById(; textView = (TextView) findViewById(; mainWifi = (WifiManager) getSystemService(Context.WIFI_SERVICE); receiverWifi = new WifiReceiver(); registerReceiver(receiverWifi, new IntentFilter(WifiManager.SCAN_RESULTS_AVAILABLE_ACTION)); mainText.setOnClickListener( new OnClickListener() { @Override public void onClick(View v) { // TODO Auto-generated method stub mainWifi.startScan(); } }); } protected void onPause() { unregisterReceiver(receiverWifi); super.onPause(); } protected void onResume() { registerReceiver(receiverWifi, new IntentFilter(WifiManager.SCAN_RESULTS_AVAILABLE_ACTION)); super.onResume(); } @Override public boolean onCreateOptionsMenu(Menu menu) { // Inflate the menu; this adds items to the action bar if it is present. getMenuInflater().inflate(, menu); return true; } class WifiReceiver extends BroadcastReceiver { @SuppressLint("UseValueOf") public void onReceive(Context c, Intent intent) { sb = new StringBuilder(); wifiList = mainWifi.getScanResults(); for(int i = 0; i < wifiList.size(); i++){ sb.append(new Integer(i+1).toString() + "."); sb.append((wifiList.get(i)).toString()); sb.append(" "); } textView.setText(sb); } } }

    The layout of this particular activity is simple only contains a button and a text view below it. By doing all this with just a click of a button , the given text view will be set with the information of the available network settings around you.

    Don't forget to define the following permission in your Manifest :-



    Hope this will help you .... :)
