I am really going to show my ignorance here: *what* site survey tool are you talking about?

I keep hearing that the AP manager has such functionality, and I must admit I haven't dredged for it, but a couple of my associates have, and they're not quite sure just what this tool might be.

I hope someone can enlighten me, and apologize if I'm the only one who isn't familiar with it. . .
