This paper describes the use of a low cost 2.4 GHz spectrum analyzer, the MetaGeek WiSpy device, in conjunction with custom developed client-server software for the accurate identification of 2.4 GHz transmitters within a given area. The WiSpy dongle together with the custom developed software allow for determination of the positions of Wi-Fi transmitters to within a few meters, which can be helpful in reducing the work load for physical searches in the process of surveying the Wi-Fi network and geographical area. This paper describes the tool and methodology for a site survey as a component that can be used in organisations wishing to audit their environments for Wi-Fi networks.
