Visualizations

For the most precise analysis there are numerous visualizations that assist in comparing Wi-Fi signals by their various network connection parameters. Visual analysis has always been the best approach to analyze specific signal values.
Passive scanning
Signal level
Shows the strength of your WiFi signal. Extremely helpful combined with other values showing how signal level corresponds to interference level for example.
Signal to Interference ratio
In case of signal-to-interference ratio assessment, the interference that's taken into consideration only relates to co-channels by other radio transmitters.
Frequency band coverage
You can quickly and efficiently analyze various frequencies.
Number of access points
Shows the strength of your WiFi signal. Extremely helpful combined with other values showing how signal level corresponds to interference level for example.
PHY mode coverage
Visually displays coverage by WiFi protocols/modes and identifies where 802.11 a/b/g/n/ac modes are used.
Active scanning
Download speed
The download speed values are those reflecting the rate of data transmit from the Internet to a user's computer.
Upload speed
The upload speed values are those reflecting the rate of data transmit from a user's computer to the Internet.
Wireless transmit rate
Indicates the rate at which data is transmitted from an AP to a wireless device.
Troubleshooting
Signal level
Visualizes the signal levels so that you can clearly see where they are low or non-existent and fix the issues.
Troubleshooting - Overlapping channels
When channels overlap the signal level may deteriorate as might the download and upload speeds. You can clearly see the issue and decide on a fix.
Troubleshooting - Low download speed
Troubleshoot and fix the issues with low download speed by overviewing problem spots and using the NetSpot recommendations on how to improve the area.
Troubleshooting - Low upload speed
