WiFi Signal

Monitor and troubleshoot your Wi-Fi connection.




WiFi Signal is a system menu bar application that provides easy access to your Wi-Fi connection details, monitors the signal quality of your network, and can find and recommend alternative channels to avoid conflicts or signal overlapping with nearby wireless networks that may affect the connectivity and performance of your connection.

Display Pattern

The space in your system menu bar is precious. WiFi Signal lets you choose, by using a display pattern, what information you want to display, how you want it displayed and in what order. When you define your own display pattern you can, for example, use only the raw values for signal strength or include everything you need. Also, if you consider the signal strength indicator (the bars) unnecessary or redundant, you can choose to hide it when using a display pattern.




WiFi Signal will log and notify you about common Wi-Fi events, such as when the computer joins or disconnects from a network, moves (roams) to a different access point, or when transmit data rate or channel configuration changes are detected. In addition, you can choose to be notified if the signal strength or Signal-to-Noise Ratio (SNR) drops below a given threshold.

Due to limitations of the Wi-Fi scanning framework, channel recommendations are based solely on the detection of other Wi-Fi signals, and do not consider external sources of interference or hidden networks (i.e. networks that do not broadcast their SSIDs).
