Wireless Network Signal Detectors

by swervy / March 16, 2005 3:27 AM PST

I am interested in purchasing one of those signal detectors for the business I work for. I work for a hotel and we have just fixed our guest wireless internet system.

The problem we were having was that the routers we have placed throughout the hotel were not in sync, so some were broadcasting a signal, some were not, some broadcasted a signal that was not actually going out to the internet, etc. All to say, it was messed up, but now it's fixed.

I am looking for some sort of device which would 1) check to see if there is a signal present, and 2) make sure that that signal will actually lead a guest onto the internet, and not recycle them through the router into nothing.

Right now I have to walk around the hotel with my laptop checking signal strength and connectivity. There has to be some easier method that someone without a laptop can use. Any suggestions?

Thank you all for your time and help,
- Aly
