have you ever searched for a wlan-hotspot nearby? skip tools like “network stumbler” or whatever, just use your brandnew wi-fi-ring!
“the wi-fi detection ring was developed to give mobile computer users the ability to detect 802.11b/g signals, while providing a unique, fashionable and ultra-portable product package.”

(wlan = wireless local area network, wifi = wireless fidelity, the 802.11 standard)
