If the original sender ONLY needs a wi-fi detector, you can get those at Staples for about thirty bucks. I think it's actually called just that, a "wi-fi detector," or something very similar. For us WISP folks, obviously things get a bit trickier. If I weren't terrified to crack it open, I'd love to take a recent PDA, solder on an antenna lead, and use that, plus NetStumbler, plus a plain old flat-panel antenna (like we use for many of our customer installs) and get most of the benefits of a BVS Yellowjacket without the $3000 price tag. :) David Smith MVN.net -- WISPA Wireless List: firstname.lastname@example.org Subscribe/Unsubscribe: http://lists.wispa.org/mailman/listinfo/wireless Archives: http://lists.wispa.org/pipermail/wireless/
