What Is a Wireless Network Tester?

A wireless network tester is a device or software used to analyze and diagnose the performance and problems of a wireless network. It evaluates various aspects such as signal strength, interference, connectivity, and security settings to ensure optimal network performance.

How to Use a Wireless Network Tester?

To use a wireless network tester, you typically start by scanning the wireless environment. This involves measuring signal strengths, identifying available networks, and assessing channels for interference. Then, you perform specific tests for connectivity, throughput, and security. The exact steps can vary depending on the tester.

What Issues Can I Troubleshoot?

A wireless network tester helps diagnose performance issues like slow data rates, poor signal strength, and channel congestion. It also troubleshoots connectivity problems, identifying issues with network authentication, signal coverage, and interference from other devices.

Using a tool like AirMagnet, you can conduct a detailed analysis of your wireless network, predictively model and plan design changes, and simulate the impact on network coverage and performance. This helps identify areas needing improvement or adjustment for optimal coverage and speed.

How Do I Find Rogue Devices?

A wireless network tester can help identify unauthorized or rogue devices connected to the network through active scanning and monitoring. It can also evaluate the security configurations, such as encryption and access controls, to ensure the network is secure against potential threats. Additionally, our wireless tools are also SNMP testers, providing network and device discovery data to show deep information about the infrastructure, what devices are connected, and where.

How to Validate Your Wireless Network?

Validation involves ensuring that your wireless network meets the designed specifications and performance requirements. This includes testing for coverage, throughput, and reliability across different areas and conditions (such as validating client roaming), using a network tester to verify the network operates as intended.

How Do I Deploy a Wireless Network?

Deployment involves setting up and configuring network infrastructure hardware according to a planned design. This includes installing wireless access points at strategic locations, configuring network and switch port configurations for optimal performance, segmentation, and security, and using the wireless network test equipment to verify proper setup before going live.

How to Identify New or Changed Devices in Your Network?

To see what devices have been changed or added to your network, you can use a wireless network tester’s inventory management or change detection features. These features allow for regular scanning of the network, enabling you to compare the current inventory of devices and their configurations against previous scans. This comparison helps in identifying any new or modified devices on the network.
