We have serveral APs in the office which are covered by ceiling. Is there any tool to check the approximate locations of these APs ?

Thx

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

There are various small WiFi locators on the market.  Here's some typical "budget" units from fleabay:

Wifi Analyzer in the Play Store, or Aruba Utilities... look at the signal strength reading to see where the strongest signal appears to come from, then that will tell you roughly where the APs are.

A signal of -40dBm is stronger than a signal of -80dBm (notice the negative).
