If you have WIFI ready laptop, you can use it to find spot with a great program called Netstumbler click here.

If you do not have WIFI ready laptop, what is the point to find spot.

So the conslusion is that it is a useless gizmo.

Not totally useless - such a gizmo saves you opening up the lappy and firing up Netstumbler!

Thanks for the opinions - Kate B, that is exactly what I was thinking plus it's a cute keyring!!!

Scan do a couple too. I saw one on offer on "Scan Today" a while ago and am watching for it again as my birthdays coming up ;) click here or click here but sorry, no cute keyring included with these ;)

are excellent. As Kate says, they save you the faff of firing up your laptop just to see if there's a wireless access point in the vicinity. With your wireless detector you just press a button and watch the lights.

I've been using the Kensington model mentioned by spuds for a while, and it does exactly what it says on the tin - a brilliant little gadget.
