Tuning your network is a balancing act among a number of variables. The task is tricky on a wired network; however, it's even more complex a wireless LAN (WLAN), where radio broadcasts and reception play an important part.

This chapter looks at some tools you can use to ensure that your WLAN operates at peak efficiency. After we discuss signal strength, we give an overview of the popular Windows tuning application, Perfmon, and how you use it to monitor your WLAN. Then we discuss quality of service (QoS), why it is useful to improve your WLAN's performance, and how you enable it.

To conclude this chapter, we look at some third-party tuning applications that you might consider to help your WLAN work at peak efficiency.
