To check the signal strength of a wireless router you need have a tool called inSSIDer. It is a free tool and can be downloaded from Download.com free of cost. inSSIDer works with Windows XP and later operating systems.
Step1: After downloading and installing inSSIDer you will need to launch the software to view the wireless router settings and signal strength. The console will show you all available network in the router range with the signal strength visible under the RSSI column. The status and the strength status are updated on real time so that you can move your laptop to get the highest and strongest wireless network.
Wireless Router Throughput:
Throughput or Network Throughput is considered to be the rate of successful message delivery over a network. The desired data can be sent to a logical or physical link. It is also necessary to measure the wireless router throughput. To do so, you need to have another tool called QCheck. QCheck is developed by lxia and can be downloaded from the link mentioned below: http://www.ixchariot.com/downloads/qcheck.html.
