wifi testing

Our company has a centralized IS department. We go out to the remote sites, do a site survey and install a wirless network. But over time the layout of the building may change and that in turn will cause a change in RF reception. I am looking for a small, simple device that I can give to a user at the remote site, so they could verify signal quality. One thought was a cheap PDA with a 350 card and ACU. Another thought was a product called 'Airmagnet'. Does anyone have experience with this type of device?

Yes. Airmagnet is a great tool for site surveys, but is a little pricey. I think it's around $2000. Your best bet would be a laptop or PDA with a Cisco 350 client card in it.

So, does acu work pretty well on a ce version PDA? All the user needs to see is signal and noise. Thanks!

Hi!

I have a great solution for you, check the Yellow Jacket! http://www.bvsystems.com/Products/WLAN/Yellowjacket/yellowjacket.htm

If you don't want to spend money, you can always use a normal laptop with Netstumbler.

Cheers,

Francisco.
