    Not really an Acer app, but I had to put it in here because it can really help if you are having wifi signal issues and don't really know where to look.

    And it's free.

    I loaded it on my laptop and can walk around the house checking the signal. And I found that everyone around here (neighbors) are all on channel 1. So I moved to channel 9 and got a lot better wifi.

    Here it is: inSSIDer | MetaGeek

    It's called insidder and the current version is 2.0.

    Hope you like it. I wonder if it will run on the tablet?

    I'd recommend WiFi Analyzer from market, which also is free. And it runs fine on both my A500 and HTC Hero.

    +1 for WiFi Analyser. Indispensable bit of software. Would'nt be without it on any device with WiFi.

    Like they say: "If it had been a snake, I'd be dead now." Wifi Analyzer right under my nose and I didn't see it. Thanks for the heads up.

    I love this forum, it helps me see the obvious.
