Wireless survey tool.

Overview

NetSpot Pro is a simple and accessible wireless survey tool for Mac users, which allows collecting, visualizing and analyzing Wi-Fi data using any MacBook.

NetSpot Pro can visualize your wireless network by building a visual Wi-Fi map. It will let you see dead zones without coverage and place hotspots (Access Points) correctly. Using the visualized map of collected wireless data you will also see channels' load and will be able to decide how to optimize your Wi-Fi site better.

NetSpot Pro is a powerful analyzer of Wi-Fi coverage. Just in a couple of clicks you can load your area map, point your location on the map and NetSpot Pro starts collecting Wi-Fi data around you. It will gather all the needed information for radio signal leakages analyzing, noise sources discovering, access points effective location, etc.

You can also use NetSpot Pro as a powerful wireless network planning tool. Load a map, collect wireless site survey data, build a heatmap of your network and you are ready to build the optimal configuration of a new Wi-Fi network and wise radio channels usage with minimal signal to noise ratio.

Great app. Use it daily and it just works. The only hangup I have is the price (and that's more to say that the product isn't worth it but rather I'm cheap). It's a solid 4..5 star.

I purchased NetSpot believing in all the marketing hype which was my mistake. This is the worst app I have ever paid for with its limited functionality and awful UI. Then they want you to pay for additional functionality which should have been in the product to begin with. Mobile phone apps I have do a better job than NetSpot. Also buyers be aware, they will not honor any refund request nor will paddle.com who waste your time going around and around and then wont provide a refund! Dont make the same mistake, save your money and buy something better!!!

Bought this from MacUpdate bundle and always had issues getting the license reactivated. Finally got so fed up and I abandoned this turkey. There's much better software out there with much better customer support. I'd say go find something else.

Unable to download software and register purchases. To many bells and whistles to many distractions that lead to more purchases unwanted. How about some help straight forward so I can use the software?

In version 2.4.607 here seems to be a bug so that unrealistic measurings are displayesd in "Discovery Mode" (Signal=0 and Signal%=100%). I notified NetSpot a week ago and asked if this will influence "Survey Mode" so that the resulting map may be invalid. Alas, no answer to this day ...

I like many others have not received my serial number. It has been a week and a half since I bought it and after two emails to the developer and 2 to MacUpdate, still nothing. I don't think the odds of me buying through MacUpdate are very high anymore.

My business has a particular current need for the full capabilities of this software, so I took advantage of the promotional price. My receipt reads, "Your serial number will be emailed to you directly by the developer," but there is no indication of how long I am supposed to wait. It is now a day later and I still have no serial number. (I'm assuming the "serial number" is the activation code for which the software asks.) My e-mail to MacUpdate support has gone unanswered as well.

NetSpot is nice but nothing special In Discovery mode, but it’s nothing short of great in Survey mode. However, you’d think they’d allow users to hide or rearrange the SSID and BSSID columns in the $149 Pro version. Next update maybe?

Very easy to use. Pro-version, which is not free, activates other features. Just what I was looking for.

This is a great little utility to help you visualize the strength of your wireless network at various places in your home or office setting. I just used it to get confirmation that my Apple Express base station was not properly configured in regards to its ability to extend the range of my network, as flowing from my Apple Extreme base station, located near my desktop computers in my home office. I knew something was wrong, but seeing the color-coded depiction of the various levels of signal strength confirmed the faulty configuration and triggered me to go into the Airport Utility to correct the problem. Thanks to the this little tool, I finally got the ability to have a strong enough network signal to connect to the Internet and to my desktop Macs from anywhere within my house, including out on the porch. Of course, I had the right devices: I just did not configure them correctly. NetSpot pointed that out to me in a more dramatic fashion that another useful tool within this category, namely, AirRadar, which I also recommend. AirRadar scans all of the wireless networks within its earshot and can produce statistics along with a graph of the signal strength and noise. That is useful information to be sure. AirRadar creates its profile depending on the physical location of your laptop. If you physically move your laptop, your stats and graph will change. NetSpot appears to use of that same snapshotting of a laptop's location in comparison to a base station, but it goes one step further than AirRadar (which is designed for a different purpose) in the sense that, when you create your mapping of your network, you physically carry your laptop from point to point and you direct NetSpot to take a survey of the signal strength of your network at that particular point. When you are all done carrying your laptop to your various locations, you stop the scanning, and NetSpot displays a color-coded map, overlaid on the diagram you previously drew of your home of office layout, to show you the relative strength of the network signal to each and every spot on your survey. That's cool! The overall application would benefit from the addition of some basic instructions or a short instructional video to step you through things, so, if you're like me, you might find yourself a little lost in the beginning. But once you figure out how the app works, it's pretty easy to get your network mapping done.

It's great, I'm amazed it's free - I mapped everywhere I'm using Wi-fi on a regular basis.

Fantastic software. Worth between $1000 - $2000. That's price for a typical warehouse survey. This software is an incredible bargain.

Fantastic software. Draw a map of your house and going around with the macbook analyzes the signal. Beautiful graphics and easy to use. Recommended.

Looks rather promising. I've already tested it at home - works nice even though it's beta. Would be interesting to analyze my office network:)
