This tab allows you to
configure some of the options that control how TamoGraph detects
APs and shows them on the map.
if max. signal is below – Checking this box prevents the
application from detecting and processing signals from very weak
APs. Typically, such APs do not affect your WLAN and cannot provide
connectivity due to weak signal. The default cut-off level is -90
dBm; if the signal from an AP never exceeds the specified level,
TamoGraph will completely ignore it.
estimated AP locations –
Checking this box makes the application automatically place APs on
the map once the survey has been performed. If the estimated AP
location is not accurate, you can correct it by moving the AP icon
on the map with the mouse. If you corrected the AP location(s) by
moving the corresponding icon(s), you can revert to the original
location by right-clicking on the AP list on the left panel and
then clicking Auto-locate Access
Points (this action can
be applied to All or Selected
APs; here by
we mean the AP that is
currently highlighted in the AP list).
auto-place APs if max. signal is below – Checking this box prevents the
application from trying to determine the location of those APs for
which a strong signal was not detected. TamoGraph automatically
determines the position of APs with strong signals and marks them
on the map (if the previous option is enabled). If the signal is
not strong enough, such AP placement may not be accurate: The AP
might be located outside of the site map and might not belong to
your WLAN. The default cut-off level is -75 dBm; if the signal from
an AP never exceeds the specified level, TamoGraph will not try to
mark its position on the map. If the AP was not placed on the map,
you can do it yourself by dragging the corresponding AP icon from
the left-side AP list and dropping it on the map.
number of APs in tooltips – When a mouse hovers over survey path
turning points, a tooltip is displayed. The tooltip contains the
list of the strongest APs audible in the selected point. Use this
control to limit the number of APs shown on the list.
