Good for Surveying

 

If you pick up a signal on this even if it looks weak your device will likely perform better and have a strong connection. Wouldn't be bad if it displayed the SSID of the network it found.

This is a nice tool if you are surveying a customer site for connection of wireless devices, Lightweight, portable design, easy to use, I would recommend it.

Low strength receiver, I'm not sure if I was getting 100' from our building outside before getting no connection, however the laptop was connected at 80% strength.

decent little gadget

 

Usually end up booting the laptop to see what networks are available and if they are secured.

Small, portable, extremely easy to locate wireless. EXTREMELY useful to locate dead spots in wireless coverage.

Does not separate secured wireless networks, or different networks. Simply says that there IS WiFi in this strength.

Consumer review by:

Excellent

 

Works very well, useful to find the location of an AP.

Can't filter out encrypted networks as far as I can tell.

Great Gizmo for Twice the Price

 

recommended for anyone who uses or supports wireless.

This is a great little device. I work in tech support, and it has an easy enough read out that a user can understand it. Very basic, but you'll know if the problem is signal or config with this.

Does not allow you to specify networks, so it could be picking up any network. But hey, what do you want for this price.

Consumer review by:

might like to have additional information on signal detection but its good enough

Very easy to use,very small and does not get interference by any other electronics

none
