A Windows WiFi Winner

I’m frequently at a location where a few hotspots or Access Points are available and I don’t know beforehand which one will be available when. I use both Vista and Windows 7; is there a way to make either of these connect automatically to whichever unsecured connection it finds?

Not as far as I know (disclaimer: I don't know everything :). After some research, it seemed to me that there are some commercial solutions out there.

As you may know, I'm a proponent and avid user of freeware. You just can't beat it when something works and doesn't cost a thing, right?

So I wrote Skippy, which you can download by clicking here. Price: zilch. And it works :)

Save the zip file to your disk, create a new folder, and extract the files to that folder; installation won't be necessary. Check out the help text for information, and get connected!
