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.

I work in a coal mine and they bought us the Dells. They have been nothing but problems. Mine alone has had a motherboard failure and a wireless card die. The keyboard is a disaster. Trying to blind type with it is almost impossible. My computer shuts itself down regularly for overheating problems. The Panasonic toughbooks blow them away.
