After you’ve ruled out interference, your users may still be experiencing issues. Creating a packet capture with Eye P.A. + AirPcap Nx (or b.y.o. 3rd party capture file) allows you to see a picture of how your channel is being used, packet-by-packet.
With just a glance you can get an idea for the total utilization of air time, packets sent, and bytes present in your capture– the bigger the slice, the more activity taking place.
From here, it’s easy to drill down to exactly what you’re looking for.
A lot goes into deploying a wireless network, and sometimes settings get overlooked. The Analyze Tab will alert you to a number of potential issues, along with suggested solutions that can help you to increase your network performance… and look good in front of your boss!
