-Wireless Survey as the name suggests will run a scan of the neighbour SSID from the AP stand point, reporting onname, strength, channel, etcIt provides crucial piece of info when deciding on what channel to run the own Access Point radio signal.\\ +====== Wireless Survey ====== 
-NOTE: despite this being fully functional you might find more direct and visually pleasant to use instead a WiFi scanner directly on e.g. your mobile device.\\ + 
-{{:pasted:20200520-164632.png}}+The **Wireless Survey** function lets you run a scan to detect "nearby" (based on signal strength) Wi-Fi networks. The results show SSID name, signal strength, channel, and other network informationThis provides crucial details which help you to decide on which channel to run your FreshTomato device's Wi-Fi network(s).

 +NOTE: While this tool is fully functionalyou may find more direct and presentable data using other tools, such as some of the "Wi-Fi scanner" apps available for smartphones. Those apps also provide the advantage of being able to easily move the "scanner" when needed, much more easily than is possible with a fixed router or Access Point.
