Join Sean Colins for an in-depth discussion in this video Conducting a sample Wi-Fi scan, part of iPads for Educators: Deploying 1:1 iPads.
- Now that you understand a few of the fundamentals…of wireless network design,…I want to show you what this practically looks like…when you are using a WiFi scanning tool…to see what's going on around you.…On the Mac, there are several tools available…but there's one tool…that I like to use called WiFi Explorer.…When WiFi Explorer first comes up,…it will show you a whole bunch of stuff, and here we go.…You'll see, there's a lot of information,…so this could be quite daunting.…
I'm going to walk you through this a little bit at a time.…First of all, right here in the middle…you see you've got a few tabs.…I want you to be on the Channels tab…because this allows us to see…what I've been showing you over the last few movies.…That is the 2.4 gigahertz and the 5 gigahertz frequencies.…Right off the bat you'll notice I've got some networks here…called StudentWiFi.…I've created these networks to show you…how you would properly design the overlap…in a 2.4 gigahertz network.…
Remember, I said there are usually…lots of sources of interference.…
