I am currently thinking about performing a wifi site survey and I wonder how a default setup should look like. Somebody suggested to use one access point and one client, then setting up the access point, walk around and do the measuring. Then move the access point and measure at some other location but don't go back to where you've performed measuring already.
I wonder whether that is a good approach because as far as I understand it, what you're trying to find out is the attenuation of the site. But the scenario above would only measure that for one direction, so it might be that a room has a concrete wall to the left and a glass wall to the other side. If I put the access point behind the concrete I might get shockingly bad results.
So my question is, don't I need more than one access point for every measurement, or if I only have one, don't I have to measure at some places twice?
Thank y'all for your help and have a great day! Alex
