    I'm in the process of upgrading and tweaking my home network, mostly wireless. Also do the same for a friend and the network at work.

    I could really do with an app for testing throughput, signal strength etc.

    Does anyone have any recommendations?

    In general ... You'll need to jailbreak first

    WiFiFoFum is an app I found really useful, used to be on the AppStore then policy changed
    Now available but for jailbreak only

    Apple don't allow Apps of this nature into the App Store. That's the reason why you need to JB.

    That's for testing my Internet speed. I'm looking for a tool to test my LAN's throughout etc.
