    If it's a mobile application, presumably you have the handset to test it on (my old mobile shop had every handset in-house...quite an inventory). You should physically move around to get varying WiFi signal strengths.

    If you don't want to use your feet, you can begin wrapping aluminum foil around the handset until the signal dies down, or throw it in a Hoffman box if you have one of those handy.
