    Default eBay purchase Wi-Spy 2.4x

    Greetings all,

    First of all I want to say how impressed I am with Metageek products!! I mean, really impressed!!

    So, my question is I just purchased a "new" Wi-Spy 2.4x dongle on eBay at a great seems to work as expected. Is this the "real" dongle as sold on MetaGeek or a copy? How can one tell if this is the latest version available?

    My plan is to learn how to use this device and start a wireless network-only business on the side. I work full time as a Network Administrator for a government agency and need some extra $$$ for the toys!! My plan is to purchase the Wi-Spy DBx as funds allow

    Thanks for any and all advice you can offer.

    The original Wi-Spy (Wi-Spy v1) had a green light when it was plugged in.* The Wi-Spy 2.4x does not.** There isn't an easy way to determine the firmware version.* What do you need the firmware version for?
