The Hawking HWL2 is an advanced version of the HWL1 and improves on many functions of the previous model. The most obvious is the addtion of a Hi-Speed Wireless-G USB 2.0 Network Adapter as well as the ability to differentiate wireless networks with security enabled. The addition of a WiFi Adapter allows the user to detect an 802.11b or 802.11g wireless signal and efforlessly connect to that signal by attaching their laptop or desktop directly to the HWL2 via USB 2.0.

Hawking HWL2 WiFi Locator & Antenna
Pros: Detects WiFi availability and signal characteristics. Works as a directional antenna. Standard USB connector cable.
Cons: Signal report does not remain on, making pinpoint location impossible. Marginal instruction book.
Buy it if you need it. I didn't see any other detector/antenna combinations on the market. It works for me, I just with the signal stayed on longer. Read More at Epinions.com
