Abstract: This paper proposes the enhancement of Wi-Fi quality assessment with a hybrid approach, which uses small and low-cost devices like Raspberry Pi, and mobile devices like smart-phones. Existing solutions for Wi-Fi quality assessment are expensive, and guarantee for continuous monitoring is not given. A monitoring device like a spectrum analyzer, needs the user to follow a specified path to cover entire geographical Wi-Fi coverage, for each Wi- Fi quality assessment procedure with the limited number of such monitoring devices.
