UTILITY: Kasuei Hitchhiker for Pocket PC - test the available HotSpots for Internet functionality

Kasuei, a group of programming enthusiasts from Hong Kong and Compulim the guy behind WiFi Graph (for Pocket PCs) today announce the release of its latest freeware called "Hitchhiker". It works as a "freespot" check with automated AP association test, DHCP test, DNS test and Internet connectivity test.

"Hitchhiker" helps you to connect your Pocket PC to the wireless Internet by imply tapping "Connect" and it will try all public access points nearby. Hitchhiker will handle all settings for you and perform complicated tests to ensure you can connect to the Internet in no time.

Features

  • Powered by WiFi Graph technology
  • Speedy connect to wireless Internet via public hotspot
  • Reconfigure system settings for optimal connection speed
  • Perform complicated Internet connectivity tests automatically
  • Report if the connection requires login
  • Keep your connection history and report the "hit/miss" ratio
  • Donate-A-Function!

That's a fantastic idea because often I find WiFi networks I have to test one by one to get the one I can use with my Pocket PC. So Hitchhiker should make the live easier - which brings me back to my question from yesterday: "who need HP's WiFi Signal Locator if you have a Pocket PC?".

Right now, Hitchhiker is available in version 0.1 free of charge from the project page.

Cheers ~ Arne

Hi All

Installed in on my Ipaq5450 2003 and works fine for me. Not really a tester, me but as far as I can tell with my little knowhow... I think it's great :-)

Cheerio
