    I've seen advertisments for WiFi detectors. Some are as inexpensive
    as about $10 and are on a keychain.

    Do these little things work? Any of you guys have any experience with
    them?

    Also, if you don't get a signal using one of these devices is it a
    good bet your laptop won't pick one up either?

    Thanks in advance

    I've got one from IOGear. It's pretty good for determining *relative*
    strength of Wi-Fi around a router. I've not run into a place where it's
    reporting a decent signal and a laptop has difficulty, but that's still
    a likely possibility.
