WirelessMon is a type of software tool, which helps in checking the status of any wireless WiFi adapter. It collects data about the wireless access points as well as hotspots.
WirelessMon Pro can record the information it gathers into a file and also offer complete graphing of the signal level, real time IP in addition to 802.11 WiFi statistics. The Professional version has all of the features of WirelessMon whereas the standard version has a number of restrictions. One of the main features of the pro edition is that it tests whether the Wi-Fi hardware and also the device drivers are working properly. The program offers substantial information about every SSID it traces including whether the Access Point is protected or not and its accessibility for use. A chart of live channel usage gives information about the level of traffic for all of the available channels. Such information will assist the network managers by denoting the channels, which could be used to lessen interference and develop throughput.
The Professional Edition of the system is really very advanced as it has some of the extra capabilities to create coverage maps on the basis of the signal strength of each of the detected APs. In order to utilize this function, one has to import a map generated by some other applications. When the map is loaded, it is possible to plot the points manually on map, or apply a device of Global Positioning System. If it is carried out manually, then a point on the map is selected and the program saves information in an automatic manner on every AP, which it can identify there. The GPS users have to set up two reference points, and then they can leave it to the software to spot their site on the map and save the AP information for every point.
