Control Panel

Another option is through the Control Panel. To do this, we go to Start, type Control Panel and open it. Later we go to Networks and Internet, Network and Sharing Center and there we will find the network to which we are connected and the signal levels will also appear.

If we click on the name, it will show us an option called Signal quality. In this case, use 5 visual levels.

Symbol of the system

We have one more option and in this case we can achieve greater accuracy. For this we will use the Command Prompt. We have to go to Start, write CMD and open it. Later we execute the netsh wlan show interfaces command.

We will see that very varied information appears on our wireless network. What interests us in this case is where it indicates Signal. A value measured in percentage comes and that is the signal that reaches us.

Programs to analyze the Wi-Fi signal

In addition to the options that come integrated with the operating system itself, we can also make use of external tools. There are many that we can use in this regard.

Acrylic Wi-Fi

The first tool that we want to show is Acrylic WiFi, of which we have a tutorial where we explain its operation. It has a Home version and also a more professional one. In addition to informing us of the Wi-Fi signal that reaches us, measured as a percentage, we can also carry out tasks such as a heat map, to know the areas where we have better coverage.

We can control all the access points around us, analyze the coverage and the information that each one shows us. It is, in part, a professional program for more advanced users.

Wi-Fi Analyzer

One option we have is WiFi Analyzer. It is a free program for Windows with which we can measure the signal of our Wi-Fi network quickly and easily.

The first thing we have to do is download the program. Later, once we have executed it, it shows us the percentage of the signal, as well as other types of information that we can also take into account.

vistumbler

An alternative that is also free is Vistumbler. To use it we have to go to its website and download it. What it does is scan for nearby wireless networks and show us the strength of the signal, the name, the type of encryption, etc.

It is an interesting option to have total control over the networks around us. We can easily know if a Wi-Fi offers a good quality or not.

Wi-Fi Commander

We also want to show the WiFi Commander option. It is again a simple and free tool that we can use in Windows 10 to have control over the signal of our Wi-Fi network. We can download it from the Microsoft website.

It shows us graphics and general information of a specific network. Also data such as the name, the type of encryption or protocols used.

In short, these are some options that we have to know what the signal of a Wi-Fi network is in Windows. As we can see we can use both external tools as well as own functions that are in the operating system itself.
