If you don't want to do some war driving and cause an accident, or don't want to shell out $500 for an IPAQ, this is the solution. Just click the button and withing a few seconds, you'll know if there is a wifi hotspot nearby. Only drawback is time, it takes about 5-10 seconds to pick up a hotspot and flash green, and no guarantees that hotspot isn't WEP/WPA encrypted, but will at least find the spot for you. Highly recommend for anyone who travels a lot and has a laptop with wireless capability.

I've used the wi-fi finder on trips, at work, and testing the range of my home wireless signal. It even found signals that are setup to not allow SSID broadcast. It won't tell you if a signal is protected (WEP or WPA), but at least you know there's one nearby. Most of the networks I've found traveling are not protected at all, which is where a personal firewall comes in handy. For anyone with a wi-fi access point at home, I'd strongly suggest you use this device to find out just how far your signal travels outside of your "walls." I recommend it, especially for the low price. I'm sure there are some signals it can't read, but that is rare.
