Differences between Wi-Fi Throughput, Bandwidth and Data Rates
if you want to validate Wi-Fi network performance you should always measure your network’s throughput. The best way to do so is by using a test tool that will allow you to measure your throughput against an endpoint on your network. An example of a commonly used endpoint is iPerf, which is a software application that can be used to measure incoming traffic and generate outgoing traffic from any device on the network
Validating Remote Worker Connectivity & Performance
Without remote technical staff and the inability to travel to troubleshoot, it’s difficult to isolate problems caused by bandwidth issues and packet loss. In this short video, we’re going to show how to use the Network Performance Test client software and the EtherScope nXG to diagnose the performance of links to/from remote sites.
Different Ways to Tackle Remote Troubleshooting – Step 1
organizations with no IT support on-site or lower-skilled technicians, we’ve worked hard to develop different technologies and methods with simplified workflows and remote visibility that will help you to get the job done – fast.
NetAlly – COVID-19 Operational Update
Multiple states have enacted ‘stay at home’ orders effective immediately to curb the spread of COVID-19. Under the various orders, governors of these states have mandated that all residents are to ‘remain at home’ and only essential businesses may remain open to provide critical services.
Remote Site Packet Capture & Analysis
Getting packet-level visibility is tough when trying to solve problems going on at remote sites, particularly when troubleshooting Wi-Fi issues. In this short video, learn how to use EtherScope nXG remotely and Link-Live Cloud Service to solve remote site problems. Includes a segment on setting filters in WireShark.

Understanding PoE Terminology
Power over Ethernet (PoE) is a technology that enables Ethernet cables to carry electrical power to devices such as Wi-Fi access points, IP cameras, VoIP phones, signage, and other networked devices along with data
PING Usage and Limitations
Ping is a protocol used to verify device availability, response time, and packet loss in a network by sending ICMP (Internet Control Messaging Protocol) Echo Request frames to an end network device and listening for the Echo Reply frames from the device. In other words, if the end device receives and returns the Ping, then you have connectivity to the device.
I Want to Upgrade to 802.11ax. Can I Just Buy and Install Some APs?
While 802.11ax can co-exist with older technologies, it can only deliver the promised gains if a careful migration strategy is put in place.
