Re: Site Survey kit

If you on the budget then check Metageek options: their spectrum analyzer is solid yet pretty cheap.

If you are building for future I'd suggest AirMagnet survey, and in the future you can add Planer option.

As for spectrum analyzer in that case check Cisco Spectrum Expert or Aiagnet again.

Ultimately you will need something to troubleshoot issues with. AirMagnet analyzer is great but expensive, OmniPeek is great too and cheaper. Again if on the budget check Metageek EyePi
