Working with slow connection speeds, unreliable signals or signals out of range can be a big problem. Whether the business you are in, or just watching Netflix at home, a strong and stable Wi-Fi signal is preferable, but not always achievable. Instead of investing in more expensive router hardware, I recommend trying one of these great applications to improve performance.
1. Wi-Fi Data – Signal Analyser
For those who are on the move, this is a great option that allows you to check the Wi-Fi signals, wherever you are, and evaluate their strength. It has a connection manager that fixes problems with your smartphone connection and a tab with a list that indicates the best networks you can connect to.
This booster has two key advantages. It can provide you with a map of your signal, so you can pinpoint exactly where your
Wi-Fi is not reaching. Whichever boosters you use, a comparison of maps can help you confirm their effectiveness. Second, this app works by allowing you to view traffic levels on multiple channels, so you can switch to one with less traffic and a better connection speed.
This application takes a different approach, helping you expel those who use your connection without your permission. People in the neighborhood often try to use an unsecured Wi-Fi signal. This application helps you identify devices that can then be removed to better protect your channel. This should help to improve your speed.
4. WiFi Analyser
This is another great application choice for those who just want to measure signal strength. It works very simply by providing a list of available networks and their signal strength. Once you click on your channel, you can use the application to travel around the room and determine where the signal is strongest.
5. WiFi Router Master
You can use this application to find out who else is on your channel. Overloading can lead to slower speeds so you can use this application to remove everyone you don’t want. The application can also analyze the networks in your area and solve problems with interference. It has an easy to use interface that simplifies signal amplification and speed.
6. Scany – Network Scanner
This application, designed for use in high-traffic areas such as offices and restaurants, helps business owners to view the number of devices connected to their network and collect extensive data. This data includes the names and addresses of device owners. It comes with many features, including connectivity verification, DNS lookups, port scanners and host renaming (to name just a few).
7. WiFi Manager
This application provides detailed information about Wi-Fi signals in your area. Its capabilities include ping, traceroute and SSID definition. You can also use the application to share your Wi-Fi signal with friends. However, it is available only to Apple users.
8. Acrylic Wi-Fi Home
This application uses graphics to display the signal strength in the networks around you. It also provides a list of network names, their MAC addresses, speeds and detailed information about the router devices. It can scan 2.4G and 5G frequencies.
9. IT Tools – Network Analyser
This is a versatile application that offers good scanning and diagnostic capabilities for all skill levels. You can find devices that illegally access your signal, apply continuous tracing, create graphs of the results of the communication check and access the interface network statistics in real time.
10.Wifi Analyser – Home & Office Wifi Security
This application is perfect for monitoring your network and protecting it. Its tools also allow you to diagnose speed and power, identify all of the router’s access points in your area and check if any of your IP connections are in a blacklisted database that could pose a threat to your security and speed.
