How to Install and Check for WiFi Interference at Your Premises and Produce a Report for NCF

1. From the Playstore install the WiFi Analyzer by Webprovider on your Android phone or tablet.

2. Open or Run the Wifi Analyzer app and take note of the channel your home WiFi network (usually name, NCF_XXXX) is running on. You can repeat this from different locations in your household and send screenshots to support@ncf.ca or in response to the most recent ticket email you have received from the NCF Help Desk. Rotate your phone or tablet into landscape mode, you can get a better spread of the various channels and networks.

4. From the Channel Recommendation page, take note of the top 3 recommended channels (3 longest) and send a screenshot to support@ncf.ca or in response to the most recent ticket email you have received from the NCF Help Desk. These will be the best channels to set your wireless modem to. If you need NCF's support staff to make changes to modem, please provide as much information as you can from the problem areas in you house (all the areas with low WiFi penetration).
