I got my WiFi Finder today, its pretty big for a keychain, but then again, I carry a PocketPC Phone so I'm used to large tech gadgets.  The WiFi Finder succesfully noticed that my office has a wireless network, and from reading the instructions, it can detect both 802.11b and 802.11g networks.  I'll keep reporting on how well war-walking works, and I'll probably get some chalk too :)

Goldfarb sent out this nice tip for how you can tell Windows whether you want to use your wireless or LAN connection for a network:

  • Right click on my network places and select Properties
  • You'll see an explorer window open up, and on the toolbar there is an Advanced menu
  • Select Advanced>>Advanced Settings...
  • This will open to the Adapters and Bindings tab
  • Simply place these in the order that you want your PC to connect to the network (LAN, then wireless, etc)
