Specifics

Simple, fast wireless network discovery of 802.11 a/b/g/n/ac access points. Use WiFi scanner to select the best configuration for your WiFi access point / router and optimize network speed.
Using WiFi Scanner you’ll see nearby wireless access points and their details, including channels, signal levels (RSSI), noise, channel width, and MAC address, signal quality, maximum data rate, encryption, and much more. Also includes upload and download speed testing to quickly measure and analyze WiFi Internet performance problems.
WiFi Scanner is great for determining the best position for an access point at home or in the office. After selecting the best position, the optimal channel to use can be determined by selecting the least used channel resulting in improved WiFi speeds.

Scan, View & Compare

WiFi Scanner scans for surrounding networks and supplies vital WiFi information needed for troubleshooting purposes.

Filtering & Choices

Filtering options narrow the results in a high-occupancy area. Choose the networks you want to view by checking/unchecking them as you see fit.

Visualize Conflicts

2.4 GHz and 5 GHz channel graphs allow you to see overlapping and overbearing signal interferences, which affect network performance.

Speed Test

The Speed Test helps you keep track of your network speeds and performance. Walk to different areas of your network with a laptop to test download and upload speeds.
Test to different Internet servers around the world or try some local testing. To test locally, follow the instructions on this link.

Save & Import Scan Sessions

Save your scan sessions and import them later for future analysis or comparison. This is a great way to see how different scans can be at different times throughout the day.
