Welcome to blogisode # 3 in the ‘Why in Tarnation is My WiFi So Slow’ series! I have to admit, this is the blogisode I was most excited AND nervous to write. Excited because I aim to provide a picture of the main impediments that impact WiFi throughput that will also hopefully give you an overall better understanding of WiFi technology.

MetaGeek is excited to announce an update to Eye P.A. that adds significant value and flexibility for our customers.

With this update, two widely available WiFi adapters can now capture packets natively within Eye P.A. This post explains what you can expect with the new release.
