One of the main difficulties encountered by those who use Wi-Fi connections is to find reliable access points in public places. Besides the most points called “free” charge to inform the password, it is very easy to lose the connection to have distanced themselves from other router available.
The Ekahau HeatMapper solves this problem by showing the full list of available access points in the vicinity. The software is not restricted to only show available connections through a list, creating a map that shows the location of the user and the strength of each signal.
Thus, the program serves as a true GPS that indicates the available access points nearby, allowing the user to avoid problems such as interference or loses connection to distance themselves too much from the source. It is still possible to verify whether the network used was configured correctly and if there are any unauthorized access by others.
The Ekahau HeatMapper serves as a reliable source to detect any configuration problems in a home network. In addition to checking if the security passwords have been configured correctly, the program detects the maximum speed available or if there are other signs that interfere with the performance of the device used.
Typically, the program simply shows the available networks in the form of a stain, indicating its scope and point of origin. To facilitate the process, the HeatMapper lets you import images with plant houses or offices, which are used as the background to give a more accurate indication of available signals.
Who does not lose connection supports more Wi-Fi in public places or suspects that a network that uses at home is not working correctly in Ekahau HeatMapper have a good solution to their problems. The highlight of the program is to visually show how the available access points, enabling the user to locate more appropriate when using the network.
The software is also a good way to detect problems in the network used by checking if the password protection is properly configured router or if any influence on the signal strength. Unfortunately the maps displayed are not automatically generated, forced the user to manually add the corresponding figures in the program.
