MrScary writes: I am looking for some tools for debugging a wireless network. I work for a large coal mine which right now uses a point-to-point system but we are switching to a wireless mesh. I would like something to monitor network traffic and help us debug jams that occur in it. Occasionally we get a piece of equipment that starts flooding the network with traffic and takes part of it down. We need something to help us identify what may be causing it.
