A Comprehensive Tool to Analyse and Fix Your Wi-Fi

NetSpot is a free Wi-Fi analysing tool that performs Wi-Fi analysis, wireless site surveys, and troubleshooting on your Windows and Mac OS X computer.

Getting Started is Easy

To start using NetSpot or network site survey, you need only a few clicks. Point to the position on the map provided to almost instantly measure wireless signals. And you may move around to amass an entire location’s Wi-Fi information. All of this data should help you discover noise sources, detect effective access points, understand map channel usage, etc. Netspot’s visual Wi-Fi map allows you to view all dead areas without Wi-Fi coverage and optimise placement of hotspots. Also, channel loads can be adjusted to determine better ways to use them.

Wireless Site Analysis

A wireless site survey helps research and understand radio frequencies at a specific spot to assess actual coverage. The survey reveals dead zones and channel interference spots, which helps create a solid network. The site survey helps you determine the kind of equipment required and its installation. All of this analysis may sound technical but you need not worry since the software does all the hard work. Such analysis would help network security specialists locate and eliminate rogue access points, avoid cross-channel interference, detect unauthorised workstations, and eliminate alerts relating to false-positive intrusion. NetSpot also helps check security settings, Wi-Fi signal strength, and non-broadcasting SSIDs.
