Wi-Spy Benefits


As the wireless space becomes more popular and congested, interference from non-Wifi devices can seriously degrade network performance. Other Wi-Fi tools, such as NetStumbler and Kismet only provide information about other Wi-Fi devices, but do not show interference from cordless phones, microwaves, Bluetooth devices, Zigbee, etc. Wi-Spy shows you the radio signals from all devices transmitting in that frequency - regardless of what type of device.
