Digital Wi-Fi Detector – pocket-sized connection sniffer


Work on the go? Or fancy using that Wi-Fi functionality on your smartphone? You should take a look at the Digital Wi-Fi Detector.

It does what it says – a device that tells you if there’s a wireless network in the area, without having to boot up your PC and search around. And it’s not just a ‘yes’ or ‘no’ thing – what you get is signal strength and network information, including network ID (SSID), encryption status (WEP and WPA) and channel. And when multiple networks are present you can scroll through info for each individual network.

And it’s small enough to slip into your pocket and be forgotten about until you need it, with power for a considerable amount of time provided by just 2x AAA batteries.

Yours for £59.95.
