Wi-Fi is a fickle beast, changing its behavior at the drop of a hat… or more accurately at the drop of some plants, file cabinets, or other office furnishings. Doing a heat map (overlays colors on a map to indicate signal strength) with a wireless survey tool is a must for predicting when and where you’re going to have Wi-Fi problems. Armed with that information, you can shift your Wi-Fi arrays around to provide maximum coverage -- or at least be aware of when some new office arrangements may trigger a bunch of trouble tickets.
