Thanks for the speedy response.
As you can see, I've revealed my absence of knowledge on this subject immediately!
What I want is a really low-cost, wireless device that enables me to 'detect' it - not really to communicate with it in any meaningful manner - just to be able to
see it'. My initial thoughts were that all WiFi devices have a unique MAC address? If I can get a low=-cost device like this dongle powered up and transmitting that MAC address, I can then set up a device to check whether it's alive or not.
Does that make sense?
