WiFi is awesome! ... but when something goes wrong, it can be a mystery to fix.

Do you have the tools to solve the mystery?

There are a multitude of problems that could be impacting the WiFi and some basic network health questions you have to answer:

  • Do I have good WiFi coverage everywhere?
  • Am I on the best channel to avoid congestion?
  • What other devices are transmitting?
  • Are they interfering with my WiFi?

Because WiFi is invisible and everywhere, these questions are usually difficult to answer... unless you have the right tools to visualize your wireless environment.

Virus Scan Results

In cases where actual malware is found, the packages are subject to removal. Software sometimes has false positives. Moderators do not necessarily validate the safety of the underlying software, only that a package retrieves software from the official distribution point and/or validate embedded software against official distribution point (where distribution rights allow redistribution).

Chocolatey Pro provides runtime protection from possible malware.
