Is WiFi Giving You a Headache?

BYOD, Legacy Networks, Rogue APs, Interference, blah, blah...

"My main goal is to make WiFi as available and reliable as possible for network users. Sometimes I feel like I'm just trying to keep things afloat."

—Bruce, Campus IT

WiFi has revolutionized the way we work and play. WiFi makes connectivity from anywhere simple and painless... in theory.

But when WiFi doesn't work as expected, it's a mystery to solve, and when you're dealing with BYOD, legacy networks, rogue APs, and saturated 2.4 GHz band — on a limited budget — WiFi can cause plenty of headaches and frustration.

See the Invisible with Wi‑Spy + Chanalyzer

We've felt that pain — spotty connections, slow speeds, roaming issues, and interference. That's why we created Wi‑Spy + Chanalyzer. Wi‑Spy DBx is a custom USB spectrum analyzer designed specifically for troubleshooting WiFi issues.

Unlike most WiFi tools, Wi‑Spy DBx gathers information about ALL RF signals in the 2.4 and 5 GHz bands, not just WiFi traffic. The Chanalyzer software takes all the raw RF signal information from Wi‑Spy and combines it with the standard information from your WiFi radio to create a complete picture of your wireless environment, giving you the information you need to proactively manage your WiFi networks.

Find Dead Spots and Saturation

By graphing the signal strength of all your APs, other nearby APs, and raw RF signals, Chanalyzer helps you to find dead spots and saturated channels in the WiFi coverage. The visualizations also help spot rogue APs that may be impacting your WiFi performance and network security.

Quickly Locate Interference

Once you're able to see interference using Wi-Spy DBx, the next step is to remove it. Unfortunately, the standard antennas found in most wireless devices are omni-directional, so they receive signals from all directions, making it difficult to locate the interference. The Device Finder 2.4 GHz Directional Antenna is specifically designed to connect to the Wi‑Spy DBx to quickly pinpoint interference sources so that you can remove them from your WiFi environment.

Locate Non-WiFi Interferers with Device Finder

Ever play "Hot and Cold" as a kid? You know, where you get "warmer" the closer you are to what you're looking for? Device Finder is "Hot and Cold" on steroids.

With Device Finder, you can track down devices that are interfering with your wireless network, like cordless phones, wireless video cameras, and other analog devices. The Device Finder view shows a signal strength over time graph similar to the Networks Graph, but also shows the signal strength of a selected frequency range. Device Finder will enable you to actively seek out transmitters so you can know exactly what is happening around your network. You're getting warmer... WARMER...

Report Your Findings with Ease

After fixing the WiFi, you probably have to create a report for your boss or client. Ugh! Fortunately, creating a report from Chanalyzer is pretty easy — with just a few clicks you can add a snapshot of any image or table displayed in Chanalyzer. Add your own pictures, create your own descriptions, or just use the defaults. After you’re done, export to PDF to create a visually compelling report of dead spots, saturation, and rogue APs that your boss or clients can understand.
