Wi-Spy DBx is a full-featured dual band spectrum analyzer that helps you install, analyze, optimize and troubleshoot 2.4 GHz and 5 GHz wireless networks. Whether you're setting up your first wireless network, expanding current wireless capabilities, managing multiple networks MetaGeek's Wi-Spy DBx has got you covered.

MetaGeek's Wi-Spy DBx is a professional-grade spectrum analyzer that operates with Metageeks Chanalyzer application. Chanalyzer displays RF data collected from Wi-Spy spectrum analyzer, showing you the channels and frequencies where Wi-Fi, ZigBee, and other possibly interfering devices are active in the 2.4 GHz and 5 GHz bands. Chanalyzer’s Session Manager provides the ability to categorize your spectrum survey captures by room, floor, or site. The Waterfall Navigation feature allows you to jump directly to the point of a recording where RF activity was highest– a huge time savings over linear analysis. A daytime color scheme ensures readability in bright locations. Chanalyzers Report Builder is excellent for documenting findings, and Device Finder for locating interfering transmitters.
