unfortunately worse than inSSIDer...

inSSIDer a more accurate signal chart, thanks to which you can detect anomalies.
In WiFi Explorer accurate signal is low sampling and shows a smooth graph….

Good looking and working dual band passive scanner

Wszystko, czego potrzeba, by znaleźć lukę w zaszumionym eterze.

Świetny program

Skanuje cały zakres częstotliwości (2,4 i 5Ghz) pokazuje siłę sygnału i jakość wszystkich AP.
Sprawdziłem różne miejsca w domu i zmieniłem kanał z 6 na 8 - mniej zatłoczony (mam w zasięgu łącznie prawie 30 AP!) - teraz jakość sygnału poprawiła się od 10 do 20% w najgorszym miejscu. Co ciekawe, zakres 5GHz jest całkowicie pusty więc chyba kupię AirPort i tam się przeniosę ;-)
