How To Know Which Sp You Are Connected To Using Public Wifi ?


When you connect public wifi how can you tell which sp you're connected to? How can you tell which service provider (isp i mean) you're connected to when you do public wifi? For instance, i know starbucks & mcdonalds in the us use at&t. But how about when you're at some other location? Short of asking the workers who the isp is. They probably wouldn't know anyway.

Using Printer Connected By Wifi

How do you use your printer connected by wifi? I have just recently connected my printer to my wifi connection but i don't get how to use it now?

Answer:- my printer is wireless as well. What you do is load the disk into your laptop, or whatever your device is, then follow the instructions on there. Mine has me connect with a usb cable. After that, it'll instruct you to connect wirelessly with the network you use. I always have a problem with when i change my network. It has to stay with the same network or else it won't print.

Itouch Error When Connected To Wifi

Why does my itouch show an invalid error when i am connected to the wifi? I get the network all setup and the status bar says that i'm connected but when i go to safari it either says that it's connecting but it never finalizes or it shows me some sort of error message. This doesn't make sense because it appears that i have a good connection.

Connect Wired Laptop To Public Hotspot Through Router

Can i connect my wired laptop to the a public hotspot through a router, or through a wireless laptop? I'm at the beach, and the house has wi-fi. My siblings have laptops with wireless cards and can access the internet. I have an old laptop which does not have a wireless card. I have a router with me. Is there some way i can plug into the router, and have it connect to the wireless network already here? Or can i just connect my laptop to one of my siblings, and have access?

Wifi Connection Very Weak

We share a wifi connection but its very weak? We live on a static home park and have access to the sites router, the problem we have is that the signal is weak and sometimes we cant connect to router. Without connecting a wifi booster to the router is there a product or an antenna that i can connect to my pc that can capture a weak signal or an antenna that will capture a signal from a router that is a little to far away to give me a reasonable signal to prevent connection drop out.

Connect Wifi Printer

How to connect wifi printer? I got a wireless printer last week. I successful connected it to the pc and it works perfectly normal. However, i have laptop also and i wish i could print using the laptop also. I installed the printer's software on the laptop and it seemed as if everything would work- but it did not! When i go to control panel, it showed me the printer's brand (hp), which means that the laptop obviously recognizes the printer. However, when i go to printer's status, it is offline. How can i change the status? I'd be grateful if you told me what to do in steps! By the way, i've got a router also but i think it has nothing to do with that, or am i wrong?

Answer:- if the printer is connected to the router (wireless i presume) with a network cable, then you should be able to print to it with your laptop thru the router using the assigned network address of the printer, but you'll need to setup the network settings in the printer setup on your laptop. If the printer is attached to another computer, and that computer is attached to the router (again presuming it's wireless), then you'll need to setup print sharing on that computer, and it will always need to be on in order to print, as well as the shared properties on your laptop. You can also setup the printer to be physically attached to one computer and wirelessly to your laptop using what is referred to as "ad-hoc" wireless setup. All of these are options, but i don't know how you are setup.

Can't Connect To Wifi

I just got a new laptop with windows 7 and it works perfectly when im using a home connection that requires a password. But any public wifi i cannot connect. The locations do have connection, i just seem to be the only one who cant access it, like at school where my classmates can access it but i cant. It shows that i am connected but it says that i have limited connectivity and doesn't let me access the internet at all. I even disabled the firewall to see if that was the problem but i can't figure out what to do.

How Do I Connect Ps3 Through Wifi?

Answer:- you need to have the password to the network if you have a password. 1. Go to settings

2. Scroll down to network settings

3. Click internet connection settings

4. Click easy or custom. I prefer easy. 5. Click wireless

6. Click scan

7. Select your wifi network and select a security type. Most new routers come with wpa/wpa2 but older ones come with wep or none. None isn't recommended. 8. Type your password. 9. If it's successful, it will return you to the network settings page. To test it, go to internet connection test. Ps you will know if you are connected to the network because a small green light will glow (by your hdd indicator) and this will blink when you are accessing the network.
