inSSIDer: See Through the Noise

With over 5 million downloads, inSSIDer uncovers trouble spots, exposes bandwidth-hogging networks, and helps you configure your WiFi for optimal performance. Whether you’re just starting out in WiFi, or if you support multiple enterprise networks, inSSIDer is your first step to seeing through the noise.

If you can see it, you can fix it

Using inSSIDer is like putting on WiFi-Vision goggles– suddenly, invisible WiFi becomes visible, and you can see the most important information about your network and its surrounding wireless environment. Once you know and understand your WiFi environment, you can properly configure your WiFi network to coexist peacefully amid the chaos.

Pick the right channel

Sure, most free WiFi scanners will show you a list of networks and maybe what channel each one is on, which is fairly useful. But if you’re trying to choose between two channels, how do you know which one is freed up from traffic, and which one to avoid? inSSIDer helps you make crucial channel planning decisions by displaying utilization by channel and connected client count for each network, so you can choose the best channel for your environment.

New with inSSIDer 5: Client Traffic Analytics

inSSIDer on its own is a great WiFi scanner, and depending on your WiFi symptoms, can help you uncover basic network issues. But if you’ve picked the right channel, turned off legacy data rates and are still experiencing slow WiFi or dropped connections, you may need more firepower. inSSIDer with MetaGeek Plus and a compatible adapter will show you next-level packet analysis, so you can find high-utilization devices, catch roaming events, and see signal strength from the client perspective.
