metageek wireless analysis scan

Metageek makes great wireless analyzer tools. The picture above is showing “Chanalyzer Pro”. The software works with Metageek’s Wi-spy usb wireless adapter line. The unique part about this software is the ability to show all devices that may be operating in the 2.4Ghz spectrum. That means you will be able to identify noise coming from microwave ovens to 2.4Ghz cordless phones. Another cool feature is being able to see if the 2.4Ghz spectrum is overloaded. For instance if you have a high density AP deployment, you will be able to detect if your over saturating the 2.4Ghz spectrum. If so, you may want to consider lowering your AP’s power output. They also sell an adapter that can view the 5Ghz spectrum as well.
