WiFi utility to measure signal strength
Can anyone suggest a good utility that will enable me to carry out a wireless site survey?
Ideally it would provide a graphical interface so I can just walk around the school and see what the signal strength is like in each room at a glance.
The laptop I am intending on using has an Intel Pro wireless card (3945ABG) - however the app that comes with the card isnít the best at showing signal strength - it only give a small 5 bar graph that is very slow to update.
Thanks in advance.

Netstumbler and a floor plan, place your WAP's where you think they could go.
Wander around and mark on the floor plan the readings in the surronding rooms.
Move the WAP to the next possible location and repeat.
Eventually you have a nice map of WAP locations and coverage and you can easily identify and area's not covered.
Used to do this for Hotels a couple of years ago.
