choose the best possible wireless connection.
First, it is often tempting to think that the closest access point
offers the best connection. However, this is not always the

that is further away.
Once a wireless connection has been found, Radar Screen indicates the type of
wireless network technology in use (802.11b or g). A small lock icon shows that
the network is protected via a WEP key.
Second, the user may find it difficult to find the information
needed to connect to a wireless network, such as the SSID.
Third, navigating the Windows settings in order to change
network connections may be difficult for users who rarely or
infrequently reconfigure their wireless settings.
The Radar Screen helps to identify the strongest point of
