In today’s article we will talk about an application that is capable of optimizing the wireless connection, therefore, it can make your Wi-Fi much faster. Wifi Analyzer It is an extremely interesting app that can be very useful if you have problems with your Wifi.
Surely you wonder how it does to make it much faster, it is very simple actually. It shows us which are the channels occupied by all the networks and what our mobile is capable of capturing. For example, if our network broadcasts and receives information on a channel where there are more nearby networks using it, we will have interference, therefore, packet loss, which causes the speed to drop.
It is precisely for this reason that it is so important to choose the right channel of our Router and access points. With Wifi Analyzer doing it will be very easy.
The best channel on your wifi network
In order to have everything clearer you have to know what the channels are and why you must choose it well and that is what I will explain to you now.
The IEEE 802.11 standardized the 2.4 GHz, 3.6 GHz and 5 GHz bands in order to use Wi-Fi networks. These bands are subdivided into channels, which are separated by 5 Mhz. Now we must take into account in each country the laws are different therefore not always all channels can be used, which are 14 in total. For example, in North America it is only used from 1 to 11, in Japan from 1 to 14 and in Europe and South America, the routers operate on 13 channels which are:
Channel Frequency Bandwidth Overlapping Channels
Channel 01 2.412 GHz 2.401 GHz – 2.423 GHz 2,3,4,5
Channel 02 2.417 GHz 2.406 GHz – 2.428 GHz 1,3,4,5,6
Channel 03 2.422 GHz 2.411 GHz – 2.433 GHz 1,2,4,5,6,7
Channel 04 2.427 GHz 2.416 GHz – 2.438 GHz 1,2,3,5,6,7,8
Channel 05 2.432 GHz 2.421 GHz – 2.443 GHz 1,2,3,4,6,7,8,9
Channel 06 2.437 GHz 2.426 GHz – 2.448 GHz 2,3,4,5,7,8,9,10
Channel 07 2.442 GHz 2.431 GHz – 2.453 GHz 3,4,5,6,8,9,10,11
Channel 08 2.447 GHz 2.436 GHz – 2.458 GHz 4,5,6,7,9,10,11,12
Channel 09 2.452 GHz 2.441 GHz – 2.463 GHz 5,6,7,8,10,11,12,13
Channel 10 2.457 GHz 2.446 GHz -2.468 GHz 6,7,8,9,11,12,13,14
Channel 11 2.462 GHz 2.451 GHz – 2.473 GHz 7,8,9,10,12,13,14
Channel 12 2.467 GHz 2.456 GHz – 2.478 GHz 8,9,10,11,13,14
Channel 13 2.472 GHz 2.461 GHz – 2.483 GHz 9,10,11,12,14
Channel 14 2.484 GHz 2.473 GHz – 2.495 GHz 12.13
How to choose the best channel with Wifi Analyzer
Obviously the first thing you have to do is download the application which you can find in the store, you can search for it or directly follow this link to the Play Store. Then you will enter and you will be able to see once you select the network that at the top it says the current channel and which is the best, the most optimal. You can see the value of quality due to the number of stars it has. You will have to choose the one with the most stars to connect to an optimal channel.
The truth is that it is quite easy to use it and it has many other options which will allow you to see in detail all the information you want.
