Looking to find hidden wireless access points in airports or hotels? Want to boost your wi-fi strength and connect to networks that may be just out of reach?
There are programs such as NetStumbler that can help find hidden networks. Not all routers broadcast their SSID, but with this program you can find some of the hidden ones that the airlines or hotels may be using internally.
When you want to pack an extra punch, think of getting a Long Range Wireless Adapter. There are a ton to choose from, and they can boost your signal dramatically, allowing you to connect to those networks that are a bit further away.
