Would this (or something like it) be useful for optimizing placement of mesh network router and satellites? I have Netgear Orbi with router + 2 satellites, however I can’t seem to get the ideal signal strength where I need it. Can this show signal strength of different router/satellites on the same SSID? The fiber “modem,” and hence the Orbi router, must be situated in a basement corner which acts like a nuclear bomb shelter. It’s hard to find the right spot for the satellites; I appear to have both dead spots and redundant, overlapping signal throughout my house. I’m wondering if I should run Ethernet to a single, more powerful wireless router in the middle of the basement instead.

Can anybody speak to the quality of this device? Does it spit out readings like how strong the signal is in V/m?

The Wifi Explorer , http://nutsaboutnets.com/combo-specs/ is what most people will want rather than this proposed massdrop. This combined with the associated software is the tool for exploring and analysing signal strength and coverage and generally that's what people need. I'm not sure if it includes a GPS or if the software can interface to a GPS so you can produce coverage maps?

Marginally useful - needs software for the graphs. I like the idea and do use it to find "channels to avoid" but it shows nice graphics in the manual that you cannot reproduce without software - so I would not recommend given the price paid.

Hey, I believe you're getting half the value of the analyzer. Nuts about nets have an app, Wi-Fi Explorer, intended to provide further context. It's also recommended to use additional software, as the Analyzer serves to augment insights. Try visiting nutsaboutnets.com and dling a free tool

As far as I can tell that’s a stand-alone android app. Nothing in the wifimetrix site indicates there’s any supported software and the only interface is a microusb port for charging.

How about some OTDR's and/or OLTS's?

I have a wifi analyzer app for my Mac laptop. It does most of these functions. And would probably be a better choice for home users. However this looks like a nice tool for professionals who have to troubleshoot wifi coverage/connectivity.

Is this overkill for a home network?

@Breezyjr It would do a very good job with your home network. • Detect presence of RF interference that could affect network performance • Determine whether performance can be improved by using a different channel • Quantify expected change in performance that would result from using a different channel • Optimally configure Wi-Fi network with the goal of improving throughput performance • As an aid in properly locating Wi-Fi devices so as to maximize range and throughput and minimize interference from competing wireless devices https://cdn.dribbble.com/users/835519/screenshots/3903629/wifi_connected.gif
