Hi, anyone aware of any software with wich we can tune the wireless signal strength with visual and audible indications? I have seen this type of software with a provider but he refused to give as he said its private. Its very helpful when you pair two P2P antennas together and looking at your laptop screen, there you can see the bar indicators raises to its maximum when you adjust the antenna. When the bars reach at its maximum result, you can assume the antenna's are positioned ideally!

Is there any application available like this? dont tell me to ask my wireless provider, they dont have it.

Any hints are appreciated
