A full-featured reference for Wi-Fi routers, NetRef will pull up the manual, default passwords and user IDs for dozens of wireless routers, including Belkin, Buffalo, D-Link and Netgear. The list of supported routers is updated frequently and the last few manuals accessed are cached so you can read them even when offline. To top it off, the app can ping a particular router to see if it's attached to the network.
