It's the best way to check what's going on in the neighborhood and find the best available channel. There's one bug in the app though. The first line in the AP List view shows where the phone is connected. Sometimes, this line switches to "Authenticating" and it stays there forever even if the connection is authenticated and connected. I have to close the app completely and rerun it for the correct indication of the connected network to return.
Before the latest update, I used this app daily for my line of work. It wasn't necessary, but it sped things up. Now it has pop-up ads and I cannot stand them. I am uninstalling this app.
It needs a way to ignore certain APs when calculating the channel ratings. Our Roku box automatically uses the same channel as our router for its WiFi remote. The traffic is negligible but it's presence is skewing the channel ratings.
Channel rating has no support at all for multiple wireless networks that are managed by the same router. I cannot tell the app that 2/3 networks (all with different names and MACs) are actually managed by the same hardware and radio chip. Keeps suggesting me to change the channel because the current one is already in use by others that broadcast at similar power levels... WTF, really, Sherlock?... it's the same radio chipset so the router cannot use different frequencies for the different SSIDs.
Now has adds with no option to upgrade , if you have an old version dont upgrade to latest version. looking for another app to replace this. Was great.
Decent info but you can't do anything about it. It tells me that there are better channels but doesn't offer any assistance changing to said channels.
