    My Wi-Fi is a little slow, so I'd like to install some kind of software
    (Windows 7 compatible) on my laptop and start analyzing things. I am
    thinking of some kind of software that shows all the Wi-Fi networks
    around me, their signal strength, the channels used, etc.

    Any recommendations for a freeware? I found inSSIDer,
    <http://www.metageek.net/products/inssider/>, which seems pretty good
    but was wondering if anything better is out there.

    I don't use a PC based anaylzer - I have found one that runs on Android
    phones, and it is very good. I originally acquied it for my phone to
    find networks I could use while out and moving around, but soon found
    that it was a very useful tool around the home network because of its
    portability - why carry around a laptop, when a handheld device does
    the samething, but less bulky, etc.

    It's called WiFi Analyzer from Google Play and its free.

    Through NetStumbler , Vistumbler , inSSIDer etc..You'll be able see all the nearby wireless access points and their details, including channels, signal levels, and MAC address.
