Searching for Wi-Fi network is normally done by pressing that Wi-Fi key from the keyboard. How about a free windows application that finds the best Wi-Fi hotspots, not just around you but from around the globe. WeFi automatically detects all Wi-Fi access points available within range and connects you to the spot with the best internet connection. If a new access point is detected, it allows you to be the first to map it, so that it can also benefit others. This helps in creating a community for those who want to find free Wi-Fi connectivity worldwide.
Find Best Available Public Wi-Fi Near Your Location
Basically WeFi helps in extending the functionality of your native Wi-Fi management in Windows. It’s much more than a normal Wi-Fi client that helps in finding nearby hotspots. The application can automatically connect to the Wi-Fi hotspot or user can connect to a particular one as per his/her wish. The first time WeFi finds a new access point, there comes an option to “Claim as WeSpot”. This means that you’re adding this point to WeFi’s database so that other users can also easily connect to this new Wi-Fi hotspot. This way, we can map the global Wi-Fi network.
After starting WeFi, it searches and displays all available wireless networks that can be accessed. There are 4 connection modes in WeFi – Approved WeSpots, My favorites, Any Wi-Fi and OFF. One can easily switch between all these different modes.
Now let’s say you are heading to an area about which you don’t have any idea whether there would be any Wi-Fi hotspot available in that area or not, what to do in such a situation. A solution would be to check out “Wi-Fi Maps”. Click on it, search for that address and you’ll be presented with a clean Google map and places with available wireless connections would also be marked in that map. This is useful especially when you don’t know much about that area where you’re heading to.
The settings tab provides option to automatically start the application with Windows, check for updates, ask for confirmation before connecting to a new spot, auto detect spots that require web page sign-in and more.
WeFi can be said as an ultimate tool for those on the go. The community already consists of many members, more and more people join and map different Wi-Fi points. Ultimately, this helps everyone in finding free Wi-Fi more easily and without wasting much time.
WeFi client is available for Windows XP, Vista and Windows 7. Mobile client is also available for Symbian, Windows Mobile and Android.
