Personal hot spot indicator.
Snipped from the net below:
Using Personal Hotspot from an iPad or iPod touch

Any Wi-Fi capable device that supports WPA2 Personal security should be able to use the Personal Hotspot via Wi-Fi, including all iPod touch and iPad models regardless of iOS version. However, when using an iOS 4.3 device, Personal Hotspot networks will be indicated with a chain link icon instead of the standard Wi-Fi icon used for other W-Fi networks.

Awesome info! Thanks for finding that. I was stumped.

Yes that is a personal hot spot indicator. I have so many people at work who have their personal WiFi's on but locked. They do not share. Even a guy in my group won't share. Can't blame them though.

I had a friend with an iPad 2 at work and she found several personal hotspots as well.
