The rotating clip will NOT STAY SCREWED.

This wifi finder can't even find a signal in the same room with a transmitter.

I thought mine was defective so I exchanged it and got the same results.

It works well for detecting both WiFi & Bluetooth. Convenient having it clip to my computer bag. When I'm on the go it's much better than pulling out your notebook to see if you have coverage. It is a little bigger than I would have wanted, but not too big.

This is the first 'finder' I've ever tried using, so I'm hoping that there are others out there that actually work. For one thing, this product is supposed to locate Bluetooth networks, and it has NEVER worked for me, even right next to my laptop. It also reports that my WiFi network strength is lower than it actually is, again according to the software on my laptop. So if you plan on using this while you wander around 'looking' for WiFi networks, forget about it. If you aren't within about 5 feet of the network's base station, then you'll never see it with the Kensington WiFi Finder Plus. Save your money, this product is not worth the money.

I purchased the WIFI Finder Plus last week and used it the past five days. As for its main purpose of ID'ing WIFI stations it does a very good job as far as I can tell. With my own home wireless setup it gave good readings around the house and outside I was able to determine usable limits. I checked it out at various neighborhood coffee houses with 'hot spots' and it found them all. Also, it wasn't affected by our cordless phones (2.4 GHz). [BTW,it does pick up Bluetooth but only if the Bluetooth device is active!]

My father has one and loves it, but I can't imagine how many signals he must be missing if he can actually find *one* anywhere.

I have been online for hours in places where the wi-fi finder can't detect a signal. I thought mine was defective so I exchanged it and got the same results. The only place it ever found a signal was in the store itself. I'm going to return this one for good this time.

Wow...Some of the customer reviews for stuff I see on Amazon are written in a way that looks a little too commercial. Makes you wander if manufacturers don't pay employee's to come on hear, and boast products via those generic looking responses.

I have had one of these exact models for the last 48 Hour's. I bought it from here.

I've tested it at work, and thought it was flawed till I seen the description on the package where it says "works on most basic access point configurations."

I tested it on my old 802.11b AP at home, and it worked when I disabled WEP. Why that is I have no Idea. From what I read on the IEEE papers for the protocol the security mechanism doesn't require it to switch channels.

I couldn't get it to detect my Linksys AP even on the factory defaults; it's 802.11G.

Sorry to say it didn't detect Bluetooth devices at all. I tested it collaboration with fellow employees on there Bluetooth enabled device's(5 newer devices.) It didn't do a thing.

I think they 'watered down' the chip design on this thing to ignore authenticated systems. They've been doing something similar with U.S. sold RF scanners, and the Analog cellular, and Cordless Phone frequencies for over a decade now. The FCC probably red taped the company's who manufacture these things.

You still can't legally own, or buy a Radio scanner that exceeds 800 Mhz in the US even though all modern telephones are 2.8-5.8Ghz, and use Spread Spectrum frequency hopping "technology."

This little 'key fob' device has a 4 bright green LED strength meter and is 7 x 4 x 1 cm in size. I has a classy solid feel rubbery plastic case with a simple silver click switch to switch on the meter and measure the WiFi strength. It measures 'g' and 'b' wireless strength (not 'a') in about 5 seconds. The more green LEDs the more the signal (if there is little or no signal you get a red flashing LED). There's also a single blue LED for detecting local active bluetooth (never tried that, but being such short range this device would probably only be useful to see if you have a bluetooth transmission fault). The meter supposedly 'filters out' other signals like mobile/cordless phones and microwave interference. More importantly it seems to work very well with my home D-Link wireless 'g' router/PCI card PC/Centrino Laptop network.

This WIFI Finder is really useful if you have a home network PC in a weak signal location as it helps you quickly find a better site for the wireless router or PC antenna. It's far faster and easier than using Windows XP to show the signal strength (and you don't have to lift the PC up and down). You can move about the house in minutes mapping where the high and low signal areas are. The WIFI finder batteries seem to last ages as well. I have replaced all my WIFI antennas on the router and PCI cards with more powerful D-Link DWL 50ATs and use a Hawking RP/RJ SMA 2.13m antenna extension cable to relocate the WIFI antenna to the nearest high signal area - found with this Kensington WIFI Finder. In most cases this is about 4 foot above the PC monitor. Now my home wireless g network runs at full speed all the time with few drop outs.
