Looks like my only option is to take in my own laptop so I wont be able to connect to the server. I will try the other solutions - thanks a lot
As I said, I cant stream anything from the server unless I can wrestle a laptop away from a teacher, which is highly unlikely. Have installed netstumbler on my laptop, am trying very hard to understand what the graphs are telling me (and me a radio engineer - how embarassing). Found about 14 local wireless networks including 4 with no security and one called by the owners surname - she has a business and so was easy to trace! I did my civic duty and popped round to tell her.
So, in a nutshell, what will i see as I approach and leave an ap. I thought I knew until I saw that our own network appears to have a lower strength signal than all the others - but no noise. I'm sure I'm looking at it wrongly.
I like NetSurveyor for the job of checking signal strengths and working out best positions for AP's. I prefer it to netstumbler and it's easy to read and gives you detailed info.
NetSurveyor :: WiFi Network Discovery Tool
WiFi analyser is a free tool for Android smartphones that you can download from the market.. pretty useful if you have a phone of this type and can't get a laptop for some basic tests.
Shows signal strength, channel, residential networks etc
