Chanalyzer is a Wi-Fi troubleshooting software designed for IT professionals who deploy and maintain wireless networks. It turns RF spectrum data into highly interactive charts and graphs, allowing you to visualise your wireless landscape. Chanalyzer creates a complete picture of how both 802.11 Wi-Fi and non-Wi-Fi transmitters impact your wireless networks, giving you the information you need to resolve the issues affecting your users.
Session Manager provides the ability to categorise your spectrum survey captures by room, floor, or site. The Waterfall Navigation feature allows you to jump directly to the point of a recording where RF activity was highest–a huge time savings over linear analysis. A daytime colour scheme ensures readability in bright locations. Optional accessories include a Cisco CleanAir® to connect remotely to CleanAir APs, Report Builder for documenting findings, and Device Finder for locating interfering transmitters.
See the Invisible with Wi-Spy
Wi-Spy is a custom USB spectrum analyzer designed specifically for troubleshooting Wi-Fi issues. Unlike most Wi-Fi tools, Wi-Spy is able to measure everything going on in your air. With Wi-Spy DBx, you can measure RF signals in the 5 GHz band, which is quickly becoming as crowded as the 2.4 GHz band
Have you been in a wireless troubleshooting situation where your channel selection looked right, but there were still connectivity issues? Wi-Spy and Chanalyzer, the spectrum analysis toolkit from MetaGeek lets you see interference that your computer’s wireless adapter can’t see alone. The Wi-Spy DBx is capable of analysing the 2.4 GHz and 5 GHz bands, preparing you for next generation 802.11ac technology.

View Activity in the Spectrum Over Time
Not all interference is constant. Maybe that microwave at lunch time shuts down half your office. How could you visualize that?
Chanalyzer takes a unique and powerful approach to recording playback with Waterfall Navigation. The Navigation Waterfall shows you the entire recording from start to finish, so you can identify events, and zero in on them quickly. Rewind, fast forward, or even pause while Wi-Spy records in the background. It's like a DVR, but for spectrum analysis. Just skip to the "good" stuff.
Identify Non-Wi-Fi Interference
With Chanalyzer's built-in library of signatures, you can identify devices that are interfering with your wireless network. Signatures follow your mouse to the density view, so you can make a direct comparison. Find a new signature that we haven't cataloged yet? Add it to your own customized signature library

MetaGeek's Wi-Spy DBx USB spectrum analyser works with Chanalyzer to show you RF and Wi-Fi interference that your computer’s wireless adapter can’t see. The Wi-Spy DBx is capable of analysis in the 2.4 GHz and 5 GHz bands, preparing you for Zigbee and 802.11a/b/g/n/ac troubleshooting.
MetaGeek’s Wi-Spy 2.4x is capable of analysing RF activity in the 2.4 GHz band. WiSpy works together with Chanalyzer to show you RF interference that affects 802.11b/g/n WiFi or Zigbee activity. With this information, you’ll be able to choose the best channel for your wireless deployment and discover interference.
Prove it’s Not Your Network with Report Builder
Everyone's got to report to somebody. With just a few clicks using the Chanalyzer Report Builder Accessory, you can easily create a report that includes any or all graphs and tables displayed in Chanalyzer. Add your own pictures, create your own descriptions, or just use the defaults. After you’re done, export to PDF and present it to your client or boss.

Locate Non-Wi-Fi Interferers
Ever play "Hot and Cold" as a kid? You know, where you get "warmer" the closer you are to what you're looking for? Device Finder is "Hot and Cold" on steroids.
With Device Finder, you can track down devices that are interfering with your wireless network, like cordless phones, wireless video cameras, and other analog devices. Increase speed and accuracy with the Device Finder directional antenna, which can lead you right to the interfering device. The Device Finder view shows a signal strength over time graph similar to the Networks Graph, but also shows the signal strength of a selected frequency range. Device Finder will enable you to actively seek out transmitters so you can know exactly what is happening around your network. You're getting warmer... WARMER...
Don't let unknown devices drag your network down. If the stock Wi-Spy antenna is a lantern, the MetaGeek-designed Device Finder Directional Antenna is a flashlight for the 2.4 GHz band. Simply attach the antenna to your Wi-Spy, highlight a transmitter’s frequency range in Chanalyzer, and start the Device Finder feature. Now just follow the amplitude history line -- the higher it goes, the closer you are!
