Canary Hotspotter didn't detect my network

I just received my Canary Wireless digital Hotspotter yesterday. I had already read on their website that the hotspotter will not detect all networks because of the way some wireless routers transmit their information. Well, my home router - a Linksys BEFW1154 seems to be one of the ones that doesn't work.

I'm not surprised - I've had some strange problems with this router, and I would really like to replace it with something newer and faster. This is just another strike against it, I don't blame the hotspotter.

The hotspotter itself is a cool little device and I'm anxious to put it to work around town. I'll post more about it after I've had a chance to break it in...
