Reviews of this on the site are far from impressive though

these are pointless, just use whatever device you have that uses wifi to see if there is any wifi signal!

Or alternatively, buy something like this to find out which direction to walk rather than stroll around aimlessly sapping your notebooks battery.

Actually this could be quite handy, I have an Iphone and if I left the Wifi on all the time it drains the battery. This is handy so I know if the wifi is within range before switching it on

for price this is good, for example n95 is your phone music player, and camera do you wana waste battery on it or use this and surf more internet or upload photos etc.

The reviews only mention the quality of the device-that it works, but sometimes you have to do it twice. I think anyone who buys anything from DealExtreme cant moan about quality, this would cot 10x as much in PC World and it wont be 10x less quality.

Bottom line - you get what you pay for!

Not as great as it sounds though...yes it will detect wireless networks. But it wont tell you if you can actually connect to them (i.e. if they are secure or open). Also all (presuming all because my £400 one does so is probably a standard feature now) new dell laptops have the same feature, with a flick of a switch a multicoloured led will tell you if there are networks nearby and their signal strengths (without booting the OS/turning it on at all).

Still good i suppose if you dont have those features and dont mind turning your internet device on after finding a network, only to find its secure and you cant connect.

yeah, if there was one that told you about open networks, that would be great.. for now though, where i live, this will constantly be on, telling me about all the secure connections around me

Is there anyway around secure connections, any I pick up on my N95 need the WEP code.

My mobile used to buzz when it sensed an open wifi network.

There were so many about after a while that I had to turn the notification on the sensor off.

Actually doing it is illegal in this country. And you'll need a laptop rather than an N95.

I'm not sure why this is expired, it is in stock, there's also another similar one cheaper $5.99
