“Yet another great Oscium Instrument
...still astonished by the great user interaction Oscium gives you on measuring the WiFi environment...”
Ischa Berghuis van Winden
I purchased this to figure out sources of WiFi interference in my home and help me find the best placement of my WiFi repeater antenna. The purchase was totally worthwhile on both counts. It works!”
Easy as 1-2-3
It's now easier than ever to find a clear channel in the 2.4 to 2.5 GHz band. If you're accessing the internet through a WiFi channel with heavy traffic the co-channel interference degrades the quality of your connection.
Identify and Avoid Interference By Changing Channels
The 2.4GHz band is a busy place. Your wireless internet operates in this range, as well as other electronic devices such as baby monitors, cordless phones, garage door openers, and microwave ovens. Since WiFi can extend as far as a football field, nearby buildings or residences can also cause interference. This activity is organized into channels. WiPry-Spectrum allows you to see exactly where noise is coming from along the ‘spectrum’ so that you know which channels to avoid. In the example above, you would avoid channel 3 (along with any overlapping channels) because it has the most noise. Then, you would select channel 10 (or another channel without interference). Now you can answer the question: which channel should my wireless network use?
