Track down offending signals using Device Finder

The Device Finder is a 2.4 GHz Directional Antenna that acts as an “RF flashlight” for Wi-Spy. Discovering a transmitting device is as easy as selecting a frequency range in Chanalyzer and following a line. The higher the line goes, the closer you are to finding the source of interference.

The standard antennas found in most wireless devices are omni-directional, so they receive signals from all directions. This can be useful, but when you need to find out where interference is coming from, a directional antenna can pinpoint your mystery device.

The Device Finder 2.4 GHz Directional Antenna is just what it sounds like — attach it to the Wi-Spy and point it in any given direction to quickly track down troublesome interferers.

Troubleshoot Wi-Fi with Chanalyzer

We probably don't need to tell you that interference is a problem for Wi-Fi, but how do you know if you've got it? Chanalyzer is a Wi-Fi troubleshooting software designed for IT professionals who deploy and maintain wireless networks. Honestly, who doesn't have wireless nowadays? We turn RF spectrum data into highly interactive charts and graphs, allowing you to truly visualize your wireless landscape. Chanalyzer creates a complete picture of how both 802.11 Wi-Fi and non-Wi-Fi transmitters impact your wireless networks, giving you the information you need to resolve any issues affecting your users.

See the Invisible with Wi-Spy

Wi-Spy is a custom USB spectrum analyzer designed specifically for troubleshooting Wi-Fi issues. Unlike most Wi-Fi tools, Wi-Spy is able to measure everything going on in your air. If you can't see your air, you can't own your air. With Wi-Spy DBx, you can measure RF signals in the 5 GHz band, which is quickly becoming as crowded as the 2.4 GHz band!

View Activity in the Spectrum Over Time

Not all interference is constant. Maybe that microwave at lunch time shuts down half your office. How could you visualize that?

 

Chanalyzer takes a unique and powerful approach to recording playback with Waterfall Navigation. The Navigation Waterfall shows you the entire recording from start to finish, so you can identify events, and zero in on them quickly. Rewind, fast forward, or even pause while Wi-Spy records in the background. It's like a DVR, but for spectrum analysis. Just skip to the "good" stuff.

 


Identify Non-Wi-Fi Interference

With Chanalyzer's built-in library of signatures, you can identify devices that are interfering with your wireless network. Signatures follow your mouse to the density view, so you can make a direct comparison. Find a new signature that we haven't cataloged yet? Add it to your own customized signature library.

Locate Non-Wi-Fi Interferers

Ever play "Hot and Cold" as a kid? You know, where you get "warmer" the closer you are to what you're looking for? Device Finder is "Hot and Cold" on steroids.

 

With Device Finder, you can track down devices that are interfering with your wireless network, like cordless phones, wireless video cameras, and other analog devices. Increase speed and accuracy with the Device Finder directional antenna, which can lead you right to the interfering device. The Device Finder view shows a signal strength over time graph similar to the Networks Graph, but also shows the signal strength of a selected frequency range. Device Finder will enable you to actively seek out transmitters so you can know exactly what is happening around your network. You're getting warmer... WARMER...
