Wireless access is supposed to work like the flip of a switch: Your laptop finds a network, you log in and away you go. In practice, it’s more like a game of hide and seek, even in homes with the most powerful wi-fi packages. You might stroll through the entire house before finding a “sweet spot” that won’t slow you down or drop your connection entirely.
It shouldn’t be that hard, and luckily it doesn’t need to be. The NetSpot Home Wi-Fi Analyzer is a great way to optimize your wireless access, sniffing out those dead zones so you can avoid them entirely. Tech sites are lining up with solid reviews and users are wondering what they ever did without this simple tool.
Fire it up, and a simple stroll through your house will give you a heat map of where access points are the strongest. You can even view multiple BSSIDs this way. Once you know how your signal gets carried, you can avoid weak spots with frequently connected devices like smart TVs, or move your router to better suit your needs.
