WiFi Finder and Windows network connections

Sep 12, 2003 • One minute to read

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)
