WeFi – find WiFi anywhere…


The folks from WeFi, the free WiFi network location service, have joined up with Fring to help improve your wireless networking connections wherever you are. I’m not quite sure how this is supposed to work in real terms, but the software apparently makes it much easier to log on to a WiFi network near to you and works on multiple platforms as well.


I’ve got it working on the laptop and it seems to be a little patchy with geo-location (it consistently places me several hundred miles West of where I actually am), but apart from that it looks like it could be useful some day. Especially if they provide a FON style free hook up service. 

 If you’re tired of clicking around trying different Wi-Fi connections to find one that works – You want WeFi. WeFi on laptops WeFi is software loaded onto your laptop or mobile device. It automatically detects and qualifies all Wi-Fi access points within range and connects you to the spot with the best Internet connection. If the WeFi software detects a new access point, it allows you to be the first to map it. WeFi also provides you with Instant-Messaging tools, allowing you to create a buddy list, and to see where your friends are currently connected.
