Detailed wiifi diagnostic app
Does anyone know of an app that will produce detailed diagnostic/debug output as you connect and Android phone to a wireless network?
We have a number of users at my site who occasionally have connection problems, however we are having trouble tracking down at what stage of the connection things are going wrong. Having multiple access points with the same SSID and problems being intermittent make it difficult to track issues from our central logs.
In an ideal world, I'd love to see something they can run to either display on a screen or store in a file to send to me. Output would be something like:
Scanning wireless channels
Connected to SSID "blahblahblah" on channel 6
Associated to access point with MAC address 44:55:66:77:88:99 signal strength -57DBi
Radius authentication request
Sending username and password
Radius authentication passed
Requesting IP address via DHCP
If I had a situation like the above, then I would be able to know they had connected to an access point, which one, what their signal strength was, I could rule out a radius problem and look straight towards my DHCP servers.
I've tried a few of the Wifi manager apps and Wifi Analyzer, which give some useful information, such as the AP you are connected to, but not those detailed steps.
As I will be advising this to end users, I can't ask them to root their phones. Though if a more technical solution is available, I'd be interested for members of the technical team.
