In the beginning of the 21st century it has been started increasing the number of devices which can be connected to the wireless networks to reach the World Wide Web. In order to do that many access points need to be placed all around us. Placing access points such way that the highest percentage of the devices can be connected to them, we need know their coverage area.

People has been planning networks since they appeared in our lives. In the beginning it was only for the wired ones later the wireless ones emerged too. For minor networks using pen and paper is enough but for the larger ones it is highly recommended to use a software. The most applications would like to replace the pen and paper solution but there are others which automatically discover the network topology and display it for the user.

However these applications are for the professional users not for laypersons. Most people wants to know how many wireless access points are needed to be placed and where in their house to access the Internet as fast as possible. Obviously it can be done by the available applications but the free ones are only for drawing the blueprints, the paid ones are not worth the single use in a lifetime.

In my thesis I am going to implement an application which can be used by laypersons to draw a blueprint about their house and place the wireless access points in a way to get information about the coverage of the Internet.
