Simple App for Rookie Users

This is an awesome app if, like me, you don't really know what you're doing, but you know you need to adjust some router settings. I figured out what channel and bandwidth would work best in my house. Especially helpful when i've got a dozen neighbors who's WiFi passes in and around my home. Was able to weed out interference and improve the performance of my network. Totally worth $3.

Very Good

This is exactly what I was looking for.
I found out why I was having internet problems it seems I was always cluttered with someone else’s WiFi I hade no idea till I got this app....

My suggestion is don’t use the WiFi auto setting. Get this app figure out what channel is best to use and always check up. 👍🏻

Exactly What I Was Looking For

The graph is amzing and exactly what I was looking for to deconflict my multi-faceted Access Point based network from my neighbors. Helped to realized I needed to narrow my 2.4 GHz Channel Width to 20 Hz and allowed me to swap overe to a 5 GHz Channel that would allow for a width of 80 Hz with no interference (and potentially 160 Hz in the future!)
