Wi-Fi Digital Hotspotter with cool LCD read-out - $59.99
Wi-Fi Digital Hotspotter - $59.99 - Sounds kinda steep for a hotspot finder, but this one includes a neat LCD screen that shows you more information about the hotspot. Your typical WiFi detector will only show the presence of a signal and relative signal strength. This Wi-Fi Digital Hotspotter, from Canary Wireless, has a 12-character LCD that provides information on signal availability and strength as well as essential network information, including SSID, security status and channel. When multiple networks are present the LCD will allow you to scroll through information for each network. The security status of the hotspot is also nice. My currently little hotspot finder only shows the fact that there is a signal.

Simply press the button and let the incredible light show begin! Good cubicle conversation piece. Since Jennifer Anniston is filing for divorce, I wonder if she would be impressed by one of these sitting on my desk. :-)
