NetSpotOverview

NetSpot is the only professional app for wireless site survey, Wi-Fi analysis and troubleshooting on Mac OS X. It's FREE and very simple, no need to be a network expert to start using NetSpot today! All you need to conduct comprehensive wireless site survey is your MacBook running Mac OS X 10.10+, NetSpot works over any 802.11 network.

Analyze your Wi-Fi Coverage

NetSpot is the easiest native wireless site survey software for Mac. You need just a few clicks to load your office plan or area map and start a network site survey. Just point to where you are on the map and NetSpot starts measuring wireless signal right away, move around, and collect Wi-Fi data. That's it: now you have all the needed info to analyze radio signal leakages, discover noise sources, map channel usage, locate effective access points, etc.

Visualize Your Wireless Network

Efficiency-wise, your Wi-Fi network needs hotspots placed correctly and radio channels assigned in a proper way: the visual Wi-Fi map you get thanks to NetSpot lets you see all dead zones without coverage and optimize hotspots' placements; you can see channels' load and decide how to use them ideally.

Wireless Network Planning

NetSpot is also an amazing wireless survey tool for Wi-Fi planning. Load a map, collect some wireless site survey data, build a comprehensive heatmap of your network. Now viewing each channel separately is as easy as a pie. Once you locate an empty channel with no wireless networks - it's the optimal selection for a new Wi-Fi network. NetSpot also lets you easily select channels for new Wi-Fi hotspots with minimal signal to noise ratio.

Troubleshoot Wireless Networks

Thanks to new Troubleshooting visualizations you can easily and quickly identify connectivity and wireless interference issues, find sources of excessive noise, resolve Wi-Fi configuration problems, and get automated professional advice on every issue visualized by NetSpot PRO.
