Aircheck Lets You Diagnose Wi-Fi Problems In The Palm Of Your Hand

A company called Fluke Networks today introduced a new handheld device that will make diagnosing Wi-Fi connection problems a whole lot easier. Designed specifically for enterprise or large-network consumers, the Aircheck troubleshoots local area network errors in minutes.

"Companies are increasingly reliant on Wi-Fi networks but many continue to see them as less reliable than wired alternatives," said the president of Fluke, Arif Kareem. This is partly because time- and resource-pressured IT personnel do not necessarily have the training or the tools they need to monitor and troubleshoot network issues. AirCheck addresses the requirement to arm frontline IT personnel with an affordable, easy-to-use, portable tool that provides comprehensive WLAN visibility across all Wi-Fi standards."

Calling it the only handheld Wi-Fi troubleshooting tool, Fluke says that the Aircheck discovers access points and channel activity immediately, and most operations only require one or two button presses.

Things that it can test for include security settings, connectivity problems, unauthorized access points (APs), rogue APs, overloaded networks, and channel interference. The 2.8-inch LCD screen and packaged software that comes with the unit are enough to highly reduce IT complications with wireless network solutions, claims Fluke.

The Aircheck Wi-Fi Tester is slated for a second quarter release date, for around $2,000.

About the Geek Mind

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.

The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
