Thread: what am i looking for?

    Default what am i looking for?

    i'm pretty new to the inSSIDer 2.0. what am i looking for when having intermittent connection? all my modem lights are on and when i direct connect to my computer i can get on but i'm dropping connection randomly on all the wireless devices in the house. using the inssider i moved my router freq. to 5 since there were no other SSIDs using that freq. this a good idea?

    do i want a higher or lower RSSI and what exactly does that tell me? Recieved Signal Strength Indcation, right?

    thanks for any help.

    higher RSSI is good.

    No other overlapping SSIDs in the channel view is also preferred. if it is cutting out, you'll want to view the spectrum with a spectrum analyzer.

    Hello byzr,

    To touch on what Trent said, I want to throw in a little more detail (this is also from Trent, just an older post of his )
    -30dBm = Awesome
    -60dBm = Good
    -80dBm = Meh
    -90dBm = Bad

    Hope that helps,
