Uniquity bullet question

Just got my bullet and wireless router up and running and was wondering is there a way to tell when looking at the different signals to connect to which ones actually have an Internet connection and which ones are simply other routers or ap's that are not actually connected to the Internet? For instance I see my slip neighbors router but he is not connected. Just wondering if there is a way to tell by looking or do you just hit test until you get one that's connected?

Only way I have found is to test each for throughput.... If there is an easier way I'd love to know too!

Re: Uniquity bullet question

Capengo does what I do.

I haven't found anything easier.

In the San Juans, people often leave their vacation homes, but leave the AP turned on.
