Most of us have a love-hate relationship with our WiFi network. It is awesome when it works... and frustrating when it doesn't. inSSIDer helps to remove that frustration by showing you exactly how your network is configured, how neighboring WiFI networks are impacting yours, and gives suggestions for fast, secure WiFi.
Since 2007 inSSIDer has been the leading tool for visualizing WiFi. With inSSIDer you will instantly understand how your WiFi network and the neighboring WiFi networks are interacting. inSSIDer shows you the essential details about your WiFi access points including channel, channel width, signal strength, WiFi generation, maximum data rate, and security. It also shows you how the neighboring WiFi networks are impacting your WiFi.
inSSIDer analyzes the configuration of your WiFi including channel settings, security, signal strength, and the impact of neighboring WiFi networks. Then in plain English inSSIDer shows you what's working great, what could be improved for faster WiFi, and what definitely needs fixed ASAP.
After seeing your WiFi and having inSSIDer analyze your WiFi, you are ready to make changes to improve your WiFi. The combination of inSSIDer and our library of free WiFi guides and videos are the tools you need to defeat slow WiFi forever!
"If you run a small office with a couple of wireless Access Points, you need this."— Samuel C., CWNE
"I use inSSIDer to show my clients their WiFi environments and they think I'm a genius!"— Bjorn H., Custom Tech Installer
"inSSIDer saves me hundreds of hours in setup and diagnostics on a yearly basis."— Justin L., Network Specialist
The capabilities and configuration of your access points have a huge impact on whether your WiFi is sloooow or fast. But this information is typically hidden for mesh systems or buried in a dozen configuration screens for standard WiFi access points. With inSSIDer all of the important access point configuration details are shown in a single, easy-to-read list.
Selecting a quiet channel for your WiFi network will improve your WiFi speed, and a channel with only a single WiFi network can be much busier than a channel with multiple WiFi networks. The Channels Table in inSSIDer shows you how busy each channel is, making it easy to find a channel that is relatively quiet compared to other channels.
inSSIDer not only shows your information about your WiFi access points, it also scans your Local Area Network (LAN) to determine what devices are on your network. For some devices inSSIDer can even show you what type of device it is and automatically find the device name.
While inSSIDer on its own is a powerful tool for getting faster WiFi, adding a MetaGeek Plus subscription supercharges inSSIDer with packet capture and cloud integration.
inSSIDer with MetaGeek Plus combines Local Area Network scanning with full packet capture to build a complete picture of each client on your WiFi network, including connected data rate and retry rate, which are strong indicators of the quality of the client connection.
inSSIDer with MetaGeek Plus also charts client airtime utilization, retry rate, and signal strength so you can monitor the connection quality over time or quickly locate the client based on signal strength. The Frame Table summarizes all WiFi packets sent and received by each client.
The MetaGeek Plus Pro subscription also adds the ability to open and save packet capture files (.pcap), turning inSSIDer into a powerful tool for WiFi packet analysis. inSSIDer is also a great tool for creating packet capture files to analyze in Eye P.A.
