This program has been discontinued.
It is no longer being updated, and you won't be able to obtain it from its original developer.
What is Network Magic? Network Magic is like having a networking administrator in your home or small business at the click of a mouse. It is a magical wizard of its own and an easy-to-use educational tool to instruct you in accomplishing your more advanced networking goals.

Tweaking a wireless network for security or speed rarely works like magic. In fact, you almost have to be a wizard to understand the sometimes convoluted process. While the configuration is relatively painless, connecting cables, power, and synching with Windows XP, the confusion comes when you try to start sharing folders, enabling security options, or attempting to make your internal wireless network available beyond the four walls of your home. It’s a little like buying a new car; you can easily find the accelerator and brakes, but finding out how to change the clock’s time takes serious effort.

That’s what makes Network Magic so compelling. With this amazing software you can start sharing printers, block hackers, remotely access your files, share files on your network without the usual hassles, and perform simple diagnostics on broken connections. But the tool goes deeper than just simplifying Windows XP tasks and the cosmetics of seeing how your network looks graphically. Network Magic also includes a useful network activity log, a detailed list of all connected device settings, and a powerful wireless security feature. Most of the settings are highly intuitive: sharing a printer means clicking on one option; Network Magic figures out the complexity.

Pros

  • very easy to use interface and wizard.

Cons

  • none

    I've been using Network Magic since it was first released, started with the free version, then upgraded to Pro. It's been one of the best software utilities I've owned and was very disappointed when it disappeared after Cisco took over. Very shabby customer service by Cisco.
    Only now (mid 2014), the software is starting to show its age, functioning well but for telling me my Internet is not connected (it is).
    I'll gladly pay a subscription or licence renewal fee if the new owners decide to update or replace it.

      I absolutely love Network Magic. Typically, these big corporates take over small ones and bring in their greedy, lousy corporate practices.
      So what happens to those of us who bought Network Magic Pro? We mourn the loss of a brilliant product!

        Network magic was owned by Cisco, who put it under Linksys, and Linksys went to Belkin.
        Belkin doesn't know what to do with it. If enough people contact Belkin and ask how to activate it, they may just come up with a way, or put it in the public domain so others can figure it out.
