There’s a WiSPY here at work (somewhere!).


Thanks Dave – and did you try it? Does it work well?

Ah, that would be the one on my desk 🙂
Works pretty well, though doesn’t let you identify what the signals actually are. It does make it easy to spot non-wifi interference though.
Feel free to try it sometime.

I have one of those too. It’s very nice for giving you an overview of the activity in the 2.4G range, and the new windows interface is very good. Don’t use it in the vicinity of a cheap microwave though, or your colleagues might be scared. Personally I love the display that shows Zigbee/IEEE 802.15.4 channels 🙂

To create not a block, but an inline code span, use backticks:

Here is some inline `code`.
