    "This is a really great app to check what frequencies the neighboring networks work at and set up the frequency of your network. The issue here is that if too many local wifi networks operate at the same frequency, they can interfere and connection won't be stable. If you're having issues with your internet and you're already pissed off at your provider, perhaps it's not their fault at all. Try Wifi Analyzer and maybe all you need to do is to change the channel of your wifi network."
