Wi-Fi detection is useful for many different situations, such as:
— When you're traveling and need to find an open network to connect to. Having a Wi-Fi detector loaded on your MacBook or laptop makes it easy.
— When you wish to test the limits of your Wi-Fi network's range, and determine just where your signal fades out.
— When you are having some weak signal issues and want to find out if other networks in the area are interfering with yours.
If you have not used NetSpot before, read "How Do I Start My Survey?" before starting. Next, identify the area you wish to perform Wi-Fi detection on and upload a map of the area. You could also draw a map using NetSpot's map drawing tools. Then proceed with your survey, taking data measurements throughout the network area. Once you complete your survey, you will be able to view heatmap visualizations.
NetSpot's visualizations will allow you to see your signal strength, signal-to-noise ratio and signal-to-interference ratio coverage throughout the area you surveyed. There is also an AP Quantity visualization that will show you how many APs (access points or routers) are detected at every measurement point. NetSpot takes care of all of your wireless network detection needs.
