Work Anywhere!

Your life on the road just got a lot easier. With the first and only WiFi detector on the market today, you no longer need to cross your fingers as you wait for your notebook to boot up. Just press a button and the Kensington WiFi Finder lets you know if your location is "hot"...instantly. No software or computer needed. What could be easier

I MUST get one of these.

Joi,

While you're waiting to get your Kensington Wi-Fi detector, check out MacStumbler. It is a Macintosh utility designed to help you find access points while traveling. Combine it with GPS and you'll be able to do "wardriving".

cheers,

See SMART ID Technology, www.smartid.com.sg It has the first commercially available WiFi detector in the market

Which ever device you select, make sure your WiFi connections are protected, otherwise, these devices make it easier for people to steal your bandwidth.

Does anyone know who actually manufacturs the WiFi Detector for Kensington?

I'm assuming it's made in either China, or Japan.

Just got mine...Works Good...Found Sig at places I would have never thought!!! It can even Detect sig at 50MPH on the Freeway. Here in Honolulu, Hawaii!!

For a Street price of 20 something how can you go wrong!!!

Love mine!

I bought the Kensington WiFi finder, and found it annoying to use 'till I made a simple mod. I hot-glued a mini pizeo "buzzer" to the back--near the key ring end, and connected the buzzer to the middle LED, (keeping polarity in mind, of course.) Now when the light lights indicating a signal, the pizeo beeps. There is no longer any need to stare at the LEDs, which are pretty hard to see in daylight.

See evaluation on SMART ID detector against Kensington's WiFi Finder at the following link: http://www.securityfocus.com/infocus/1727. More comparisons at www.gizmodo.com.

I just bought this device at best buy. I took it home where there is no wifi signal. I was very impressed with it ...it detected my microwave form 50 feet amd my 2.4 GHz phone everywhere in my house. When both devices were off it detected nothing. I am not kidding either.

First, it's simple. You turn it on and it tells you if you're near a hotspot.

Second, it's erratic. The indication of signal strength varies greatly depending on the direction the device is pointing.

Third, it's cheap. The on/off button doesn't work very well. I had to press it about 20 times to get it to turn on, then when I was done, I couldn't turn it off. After a couple of days, the batteries died.

Conclusion: $30 for a use-once-and-throw-away WiFi Finder is too much. I'll use my Axim, thank you.

Keyword Pagerank Finder will then report all websites that are listed in google or yahoo or msn or yandex for your keyword with Pagerank, cache.
Keyword Pagerank Finder can make it's way through the pages of Google, Yahoo, Msn, Yandex, and search for sites that have a specific PR value, cache, based on keywords you enter. By linking to a site with high PageRank , you can increase the PR of your own website and improve your own ranking within the search engines. Keyword Pagerank Finder has made the job much easier for you.
Manually going through each and every page of Google, Yahoo, Msn, Yandex results, for each and every keyword related to your site to find pages and link partners with high Pr and cache is a big hassle. First you have to search Google, Yahoo, Msn, Yandex for the sites then find the PR of the site and cache after that you need to find the backward links to that site.
