Optimize Throughput and Capacity
After you’ve ruled out interference, your users may still be experiencing issues. Creating a packet capture with Eye P.A. + AirPcap Nx (or b.y.o. 3rd party capture file) allows you to see a picture of how your channel is being used, packet-by-packet.
With just a glance you can get an idea for the total utilization of air time, packets sent, and bytes present in your capture– the bigger the slice, the more activity taking place.
From here, it’s easy to drill down to exactly what you’re looking for – see for yourself
Trace your network’s conversations
“I recently had a manager with a new Dell laptop that was horribly erratic on our usually-reliable 802.1X based WLAN. The curious thing was that another co-worker had the same model, and had zero problems. Using Eye P.A., I was able to quickly find both devices in the treepie, drill in for differences, and see that the problem machine was pretty much an exercise in re-transmissions. A quick driver update did the trick.”

Capture Packets with AirPcap Nx
In addition to supporting a variety of packet capture formats, Eye P.A. also supports packet capture with the AirPcap Nx. This 2×2 MIMO device allows you to record 802.11a/b/g/n packet captures in both the 2.4 GHz and 5 GHz bands, without launching another program.
Eye P.A. is great for visualizing what is going on in the air
