How can you monitor WiFi SSID stability?

Example, WiFi signal goes down but lan connection active.

Thanks

    From what I know, the Fing app does not specifically monitor WifI for stability.  If you keep it on, it can tell you if your network looses connectivity but that's an always on proposition and would not differentiate between your lan health and that of your WiFi signal.  I know that some Routers, Link the Linksys Velop systems, will tell you if you enable it, whether your nodes are down or up but that's as far as I've seen.

    @Pixel, @kltaylor, @Robin, @rooted , any of you folks have suggestions for @ALI ?

    Sounds like wireless interference, I recommend logging into your wireless router and verifying the channel selection is set to auto on both 2.4ghz and 5ghz.

    If that is already done and you have an Android device install WiFi Analyzer and look at the available channels and select one that is not congested and enter that into the channel selection on your router.
