Hi there

I am working in a school at the moment and the teachers are back this week. They keep complaining that their connectivity keeps dropping. But every time I sit at any of the machines to check, it is working just fine again. I don't think that they are imagining this as I have received the complaint too many times. So far none of them have been able to tell me if it is just the internet connection or the actual network connection itself.

There was a wireless crowd in over the summer and they have extended the wireless network. To allow the hundreds of possible connections by students which will be allowed to bring their own devices this school year. However I think that they may have made changes to the network that effects the overall connectivity.

So I am looking for some tools that will allow me to monitor connectivity from a couple of the machines over the period of a number of hours or so. I presume that this will help guide me in the right direction.
