WiFi troubleshooting capabilities
Because it allows you to observe the Wi-Fi network’s signal evolution, WiFi Signal can be seen as an indispensable tool for easily troubleshooting various issues that may occur while using your wireless hotspot.
WiFi Signal also comes with a channel recommendation feature that will enable you to avoid channel conflicts and signal overlapping that would generate a variety of connectivity problems or signal deterioration.
Analyze your wireless hotspot's signal intensity
Additionally, WiFi Signal will make it possible to view the signal strength using either percentages or the dBm scale, thus allowing network professionals to analyze the signal modifications of a Wi-Fi hotspot a lot more precisely.
Although suitable for both beginners and advanced users, due to its minimal interface and ease of use, WiFi Signal should be the tool of choice of the former, mainly on account of the limited amount of information it presents. Users that need to look into serious network issues should give a try to WiFi Explorer, Adrian Granados’ more complex Wi-Fi analysis utility.

To sum it all up, WiFi Signal is a no-frills and low-key app that will allow you to trace and correct simple WiFi connection issues like channel conflicts, when you’re on the go or after you’ve just installed a new wireless router in your home or office.
