Wi-Fi access points are, quite literally, EVERYWHERE. I was out in middle of a dirt field one day and I still got a WiFi signal. The difference between a useless and a useful AP, though, is whether or not it's secured. Hence, does this indicator only indicate an unsecured AP in the area? Or does it... well... pretty much light up any time it's switched on?
