I want my WiFi, and I want it now!

linksys-wifi-finder.jpgFor those of us gadgetheads who have long lived in peaceful co-existence with our Internet connections, we have sometimes become so attached to it that we tend to check our e-mail every 5 minutes only to find nothing but spam on physical enlargement programs and financial schemes. This is possible if you have an EV-DO connection, but the poorer folk who cannot afford the exorbitant monthly fee, they will just have to settle for free WiFi that is generously provided by Starbucks and other commercial establishments. If you ever need to find that crucial WiFi hotspot, there is no better device to do so than the Linksys Wireless-G USB Network Adapter with Wi-Fi Finder.

The Wireless-G USB Adapter with Wi-Fi Finder is a pocket sized device that is capable of sniffing out any WiFi spots the moment you activate it. Best part is, you don’t even need to hook it up to any USB port before doing so, making this the perfect out-of-pocket solution. Of course, letting you know whether there is a WiFi hotspot or not is one thing, it is also impressive to know that the Wireless-G USB Adapter with Wi-Fi Finder is also capable of displaying important information such as the wireless network’s name (SSID), signal strength, the channel used, and whether wireless security is enabled or not on an LCD display.

Interested parties will be able to pick it up for $79 a pop. No longer do you need to search high and low for a WiFi hotspot with the Wireless-G USB Network Adapter with Wi-Fi Finder. Bear in mind the readouts received will only cater for Wireless G or B networks, so those who are ahead of the crowd with draft-N networks will have to sit out on this one.

WiFi is only free at Starbucks in the USA. Everywhere else, including Canada, you have to pay.

This is one of the reasons Starbucks in Canada is not so popular.

Actually – starbucks charges in the USA. You can get on for free for the first day, usually, as a deal, but they use T-Mobile Hotspots, which can be about $30.00 a month for nationwide unlimited usage.
