Troubleshooting WiFi

Raj Perumal Raj Perumal Profile: Raj Perumal

Hi folks! Sometimes installing WiFi can just be a big pain. Sometimes, it just doesn’t work as advertised. In those cases, you need to a bit of troubleshooting.

More likely than not, you could be located in a zone with lots of contention for the same wireless channels you are using. One of the easiest ways to figure this out is with some freely available tools.

One of my favourite free tools to use is Inssider. This tool allows you to see what channels each WiFi system is using and allows you to plan accordingly. It provides lots of useful information for a free product!
