Is it possible to search for free wifi access point?

Postby jermpatrick » Wed May 26, 2010 1:43 pm

Is it possible to scan for wifi networks and get notifications when an unsecure/free wifi access point is found?

Also, is it possible to get details on wifi networks such as the Mac address?

Nexus One does it automatically - it notifies you using the notification bar. Alternatively, if you want to do it yourself - just listen to WifiManager.SCAN_RESULTS_AVAILABLE_ACTION and then check the type of network for each ScanResult.

You can access the information about the networks, read this.
