As for WI-FI I also see the camera light come on but didn't get a report back from prey software over WI-FI. NOTE: I have only tested this on a encrypted WI-FI connection and not an open one (Yet), maybe I will hit the local coffee shop and test this later.

All in all I think this will work over open WI-FI as it sent the commands to my netbook over the encrypted signal, maybe I just needed to be patient as the images might be large to send over WI-FI.

More testing on the way but it's looking to be a solid solution and best of all it's free

That sounds great. Thanks for the update !!

I thought I read some where that it would have to pick up an unencrypted wifi signal ? Not sure if at some coffee shops you have to have a wep key or even a login id ? Let me know if it's successful at connecting to a random open router and sends the appropriate information to you automatically....
