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?
The cost effective solution would be to use the cisco ACU application on the user laptop. or Netstubmler
Next is a wireless card with a PDA.
The Dell PDA with a symbol wireless card would be cost effective.
Airmagnet, we bought it a year ago for @ $3000 and that just the wireless card and software. It does not come with a PDA. It is a tool for professional and has very good features. I think its one of the top wireless analysis tools available.
Airmagnet is a fantastic program, however it is expensive and not for the typical end user. As suggested by the other post, the Cisco wireless client shows the signal strength and quality in a simple format. If you have multiple APs, then Netstumbler may be a better solution for you. It will measure the strength of all of the access points at once, since it is a wireless packet analyzer.

This is the start of a display filter cross reference between Wireshark and OmniPeek.
The 1st installment is a table of advanced filters. More filters will be added as time allows.

The script should be completely self explanatory.
