Geoff from http://geoffmobile.com shows off a really cool and useful Android app, called "Wifi Analyzer by Farproc" which allows you to see the channels and strengths of the competing wifi routers in your home and nearby. Please subscribe :) http://youtube.com/geoffmobile Link to the app (Wifi Analyzer by Farproc): https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.farproc.wifi.analyzer&hl=en Hope you found this demo helpful. :) Here is some more info on how this app can be used: When a wifi router communicates, it uses a channel for its signal. However, there are only around 10 channels available, and if there are too many routers on the same channel the data transfer speed may be slower or you may even lose your connection. By identifying the strengths of the different wifi signals that are competing with your own wifi router, as well as the channels that they are set to, you can identify possible issues with your wifi router and also may be able to manually set your router's channel to a different channel to avoid competing with nearby routers. To change your router's channel, please see the user manual for your router. It usually involves logging into the router's configuration screen using a web browser set to a certain IP address, and username and password for your router. Any questions please let me know and I'll try to help :) Cheers, Geoff http://geoffmobile.com
Some times you have a poor WiFi signal and you just do know why. That's where WiFi Analyzer comes in. It will help you determine signal strength, what other wifi access points around as well as what channel they are broadcasting on. There are plenty of other things that WiFi Analyzer can do, but to find out you will have to watch.

This quick video will go through a few tips on how to troubleshoot your wireless network. First we suggest that you check your wired connections and make sure that your WiFi router has internet connection from your internet service provider (ISP). Often you are not able to connect to the internet because your cable modem is not receiving internet from your ISP. If you are unable to connect to your wireless router in certain areas of your home, we suggest extending your range with a WiFi range extender or powerline. To recover your forgotten router WiFi password, you can connect to your router with a wired connection. Otherwise, to reset your router to factory default, you can use a pin to hold the reset button on the back of your router. Note that this will reset your router to factory default settings and you’ll have to reconnect using the default network name and password on the back of your router.
