Chanalyzer Pro

    Wireless troubleshooting goes beyond packet capture. Traditionally, spectrum analysis was only available to those with really big pockets - then came Wi-Spy. MetaGeek opened the floodgates to enable anyone with professional-grade wireless spectrum analysis hardware and software. With Chanalyzer Pro and Wi-Spy you can:

    • Quickly build powerful Wi-Fi reports.
    • Find and Identify sources of Interference.
    • Record Wi-Fi and Spectrum Data.
    • See how bad the interference was - when it occurred.
    • View a single channel in high resolution
    • Increase 5GHz 802.11n hardware installations
