NetworkLocation adds Wi-Fi

Centrix's NetworkLocation 3.0, a Mac OS X application that automatically adjusts user settings based on location, has launched with integrated Wi-Fi positioning from Skyhook Wireless. With Skyhook support the software can automatically recognize its location and act according to presets, launching programs as well as changing printers, wallpaper, and the locking status of Keychain. The app can also launch scripts or actions.

NetworkLocation costs $30 and works with Mac OS X 10.5 or later. Skyhook support is said to work best in urban areas, where multiple Wi-Fi access points will be in range, making for better triangulation.
