Find a less crowded channel for your router with WiFi Analyzer. Before using the app, make sure that you have WiFi enabled on your device. Then, choose from multiple views to see current network performances.
- Channel Graph: Signal strength graphed vs. WiFi channels
- Time Graph: Signal strength vs. time
- Channel Rating: Channel performance capability
- AP list: Information about in-range access points
- Signal Meter: Signal strength for currently connected network only
To choose the right channel, you’ll want to set your router to one that isn’t be used by other networks in your same range, since networks in the same range are forced to share bandwidth.
In the options, make sure to check the appropriate scan interval and whether you’d like the app to scan automatically when opened. Also, you can set the app to automatically activate (and deactivate) WiFi when the app is opened (and closed).
Overall, WiFi Analyzer is a handy tool if you’re interested in setting up your router on the best channel. I’m sure this app would also be extremely useful for anyone working in IT or as a network consultant. Definitely another great tool offered for free on Android!
