My company is starting to provice wireless internet access for public locations like hotels. We setup the wireless equipment. Right now they send me out in advnace to survey the property to see what equipment we need. I am new to this.

What equipment should i use for testing? is there any special software that will help me? how should i record my data?

right now i plug in a wireless router and walk around with my laptop to see where i can get a signal.

use wirelesss routers and use laptops. walk away from the router with your laptop. go the farthest distance with the laptop so that you can still use the internet. the farthest distance means the best router!

Record how far you can get with the laptop and still have internet access.

as far as signal, there is a pprogram where you set up the LAN settings on Windows and Mac. It will tell you the signal strength!
