Unanswered Question

Is there any free powerful software that is avaliable to test the channel and traffic for site survey and testing purposes.

Most of the software, I came across is too expensive to purchase.

I have this problem too.

You could use netstumbler or the cisco cb-21 site survey utility to map coverage areas and IPERF/JPERF and Chariot for throughput data. Are you a Cisco reseller? If so, there is a special bundle offer available from AirMagnet right now where you can get Survey Pro and Analyzer Pro with an 802.11n card for around 3000.00 US. That's about 60% savings.

im looking for speed testing software as well which one did you find for a charge?

If you are looking for speed you most definitely want to use Iperf/Jperf. Its free and has an interface also built into AirMagnet anaylzer so that the speed can be incorporated into your survey data.

No. I am not a Cisco seller. However, i am interested in knowing more as my work deal with wireless. we are a small company with low budget.

I can't remember the name but some need charges. Does netstumbler need to purchase or is a trial version?
