Rob,
I want to "roam" around my property (ranch), and have my WIFI palmtop know where it is physically when it encounters an access point. (tallying animals, feed, supplies).


Ideally, I'd have my WinCE4.2 browser display a different web page at every access point -- hopefully without any user intervention. Basically, the browser would be running, and whenever I walk or drive into range of an access point, the displayed web page would change to reflect the location/function of the place.


Is this doable at any level? If so, could it be even remotely affordable for an individual on an individual's hobby budget?


TNX,
LLoyd
