Is there anything more annoying than spotty internet service in your house? Allow us to answer that question for everyone. No. No, there is not. If your house is full of dead zones and weak signals, text exchanges get dropped, pages don’t load correctly and don’t even think about trying to stream something on Netflix or YouTube.
Since WiFi has become every home or office’s de facto lifeline to the outside world, you can make sure that tether never wavers with the help of a top-flight site survey tool like NetSpot Home. Right now, you can score lifetime access to NetSpot Home for either Mac or Windows users for just $19, a 72 percent savings off the regular price.
NetSpot doesn’t just tell you if you’re getting a WiFi signal or not. It provides a hyper-detailed analysis of your entire environment. After creating a complete site map of your home or office, NetSpot’s mapping feature conducts a thorough network site survey of your whole floor plan.
Pick a particular trouble spot and you’ll get a full “heat map” visualization report on the strength of signals within range. In addition to WiFi connections, NetSpot also maps environmental “noise” from microwaves, cordless phones and other items that could be impacting your WiFi as well as interference from competing WiFi networks.
Armed with that knowledge, NetSpot is an elite-level troubleshooter that can help you place WiFi range extenders and attack any signal strength issues.
