I don't quite understand whether you want to see how good your computer's connection to the AP is or if you want to know what other networks the AP sees. For your computer, it depends on the OS; for Windows you can try Network Stumbler, for Linux use the aircrack-ng suite which includes airodump-ng, an utility that can (among many other things) display all ...

If router 1 is AP and 2 and 3 are station, how is 3 supposed to get a signal from 2 - it's not an AP? You need to create 2 profiles on router 2, so it acts as a station to router 1 and an AP to router 3. My WRT experience is limited so I am not sure if you have that option though. Netgear WNDAP360 I know for fact can bridge the way you want and allow client ...

Typically you can't measure the signal strength between two APs in the way you are thinking (there are some enterprise grade products that have some ability but it is expensive kit!) I presume you have some sort of issue with overlap between two APs, judging by the question? It may simpler just to check the channel spacing between the two. Typically on the ...

Your router seems supported by OpenWRT. I would use OpenWRT, since at the moment is more powerful and in my humble opinion the new bootstrap-based interface is the easiest and most beautiful of all WRT software out there, commercial or not. Since your router seems to support concurrent dual band (please confirm this), I would setup the 5 ghz band as a ...

Use this command ( This gives details about all active ips starting with 192.168.1. & their mac & brand ): sudo arp-scan 192.168.1.0/24 Above command can be read as below This will give the list of active ips. You can replace 192.168.1.0 with whatever ip u want but the "/24" is a must. Sorry if there are some mistakes this is my first time ...

There aren't really "cut and dry" answers to either question, although maybe I can shed a little light on things to make them easier for you. I'm assuming your taking a wireless communications/networking class, and this is your final project (although correct me if I'm wrong). The uninterrupted streaming part isn't probably as much of a concern as the ...

Have you set a cap for the upload on your torrent client? Without that torrenting very easily eats up all your available bandwidth. Check out for example this: http://www.techsupportalert.com/content/optimizing-torrent-speed.htm You seem to be pinging the router to determine performance. That's not a way to do it, ping is only a connectivity tool, not a ...

Based on your description I'd say you should talk to a professional who has experience in this kind of setup and can come onsite. EIRP tells you what's the actual transmit power of the antenna in milliwatts, calculated from radio transmit power, cable loss (signal loss on the cable between the radio and the antenna) and antenna gain. SNR is signal to noise ...

This utility, supplied by Asus, tells you the hidden IP address. The link is from the RT-AC66U, but it might work for the 68 as well. http://dlcdnet.asus.com/pub/ASUS/LiveUpdate/Release/Wireless/Discovery.zip

It varies with the client device. Some are better than others (at least at making the sensible choice of AP as seen by humans managing the system) so the methods obviously vary. In general, a sensible approach evaluates the signal and signal to noise ratio of the available APs and picks the one with the best signal to noise. I believe that most devices do ...
