WiFi Monitor is a powerful tool that allows you to watch the state of Wi-Fi networks and gather data about its parameters (signal strength, frequency, connection speed, etc). It is useful for setting up a wireless router, WiFi usage monitoring and checking the connected devices.
"Connection" tab displays information about the connected Wi-Fi hotspot:
• name (SSID) and identifier (BSSID)
• router manufacturer
• connection speed
• router signal strength
• frequency and channel number
• hotspot security options
• MAC address and IP address of smartphone
• subnet mask, default gateway and DNS address.
"Networks" tab allows to compare all available WiFi networks by the following parameters: type, equipment manufacturer, signal level, security protocol. Access points with the same name (SSID) are grouped together.
"Channels" tab displays hotspots signal level depending on its frequencies. Routers using same frequencies provide bad quality of a Wi-Fi connection.
"Strength" chart helps to compare received power levels of available WiFi hotspots and monitor its dynamics. The higher router signal strength, the better quality of connection.
"Speed" chart displays the real amount of transmitted and received data in the connected network. This will help to track usage of a hotspot.
"Scanning" section performs search of devices in the connected network and displays its parameters. If you find foreign devices in your wireless infrastructure, block them in router settings.
