On the radar screen With the Radar Screen, you can see all of the nearby wireless devices in the area. The devices with the strongest signal are easily identifiable, enabling you to 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 case. The strongest connection possible may be to a device 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 connection, provides the information needed to get connected and prompts the user to change the settings. 2 Click on the access point or wireless device, then drag to draw a line to your computer.
