Free unsecured wireless internet in my hotel but my ps3 can't connect. it says it successfully obtains an ip address but then says internet connection failed. what can I do to fix this?


If the Wi-Fi you are connecting to requires you to log in, or accept terms and conditions, or etc. from a web browser, you need to open the web browser on the PS3 and do so. If it doesn't let you get that far, ask the hotel if they can manually add the PS3 to the Wi-Fi access list.

How do I Get Wi-Fi on my iPod Touch if it Says No Wi-Fi


<p>One of the most useful features of the iPod Touch is the ability to use the Internet through a WiFi connection if you have a wireless home network and within range of your router, you can access the Internet via your iPod with ease. If you're in public, you can use the free wireless internet businesses such as hotels, cafes and airports. If you are not in a Wi-Fi zone, will warn you that your iPod will not be able to get online. When this happens, then you need to move to an area that has Wi-Fi <br /> <p><br /> <p>1. Confirm your wireless connection is configured correctly by checking if you can get online on your home computer. If your router is not configured correctly, you will not be able to use their access to Wi-Fi with your iPod. <br /> <p>2. Go to a place where you know Wi-Fi is available. In urban areas, Wi-Fi is available in many businesses and families. Press the "Settings" icon on your iPod, click on "Wi-Fi" to search for available networks in the area. If there are none that appear, confirming the Wi-Fi icon at the top of the page is set to "On" instead of "Off". If no network can see, you're in an area where there is Wi-Fi available. <br /> <p><br /> <p>3. Click the name of an available Wi-Fi network and enter the correct password. Sometimes you may not be able to access the network, because you do not have the password. While companies such as pubs and hotels to their networks without protection for the enjoyment of their patrons are usually password protected networks. <br />

What is wifi


Hi,
Wireless local area network is a local area network that uses high frequency radio signals to transmit and receive data over distances of a few hundred feet, uses ethernet protocol.

In simple word allow you to surf internet without any internet cable connection, Wi-Fi enabled device such as a personal computer, video game console, smartphone or digital audio player can connect to the Internet when within range of a wireless network connected to the Internet. The coverage of one or more (interconnected) access points called hotspots, can comprise an area as small as a few rooms or as large as many square miles. Coverage in the larger area may depend on a group of access points with overlapping coverage.

In addition to private use in homes and offices, Wi-Fi can provide public access at Wi-Fi hotspots provided either free-of-charge or to subscribers to various commercial services. Organizations and businesses - such as those running airports, hotels and restaurants - often provide free-use hotspots to attract or assist clients. Enthusiasts or authorities who wish to provide services or even to promote business in selected areas sometimes provide free Wi-Fi access.


Thanks....!!!

What is wi fi whats does it do


Hi,

Wi-Fi stands for wireless fidelity. The term Wi-Fi, which is alternatively pushed by the Wi-Fi Alliance, a trade group that pioneered commercialization of the technology. Wi-Fi is mostly about connecting to the Internet without physically attaching your computer to anything. Mostly it's about using laptop computers.


A Wi-Fi enabled device such as a personal computer, video game console, mobile phone, MP3 player or personal digital assistant can connect to the Internet when within range of a wireless network connected to the Internet. The coverage of one or more (interconnected) access points — called a hotspot — can comprise an area as small as a few rooms or as large as many square miles. Coverage in the larger area may depend on a group of access points with overlapping coverage. Wi-Fi technology has been used in wireless mesh networks, for example, in London.

In addition to private use in homes and offices, Wi-Fi can provide public access at Wi-Fi hotspots provided either free-of-charge or to subscribers to various commercial services. Organizations and businesses - such as those running airports, hotels and restaurants - often provide free-use hotspots to attract or assist clients. Enthusiasts or authorities who wish to provide services or even to promote business in selected areas sometimes provide free Wi-Fi access.
Routers that incorporate a digital subscriber line modem or a cable modem and a Wi-Fi access point, often set up in homes and other premises, can provide Internet-access and internetworking to all devices connected (wirelessly or by cable) to them. One can also connect Wi-Fi devices in ad-hoc mode for client-to-client connections without a router. Wi-Fi also enables places that would traditionally not have network access to connect, for example bathrooms, kitchens and garden sheds.

Good luck and have a nice day.
rating the solution is highly appreciated.

Play online ps3 in hotel free wireless Internet n won't connect


I'm staying in a hotel and have free wi-fi and wired internet but I can not seem to get online. During the connection test the "obtain IP address" step is successful, however the next step "internet connection" fails. This is an unsecured network and does not require any wpa keys , and I don't think it requires an SSID. I had no trouble connecting my laptop.

Connect dsi to the internet


Error Code: 051110 The Nintendo DS is unable to connect to an Access Point. What to do will depend on where you are connecting from:
Connecting from a wireless home network:
    If you have multiple connection files saved to your Nintendo DS, the error message you received can help determine which connection file may be experiencing a problem:
    • Errors ending in 0 = connection file 1
    • Errors ending in 1 = connection file 2
    • Errors ending in 2 = connection file 3
    • Errors ending in 3 = Nintendo Wi-Fi USB Connector

  • Make sure that the DS is within 30 feet of the wireless access point and facing in its general direction.

  • Make sure that any other interfering devices, such as microwaves and cordless phones, are turned off.
If the above information does not work, and you are using the Nintendo Wi-Fi USB Connector, click here for additional assistance.
If the above information does not work, and you are connecting at home with a wireless router, there could be settings on your router that need to be adjusted. Please click here for more information.

Connecting from a Hotspot

  • Ensure the Hotspot location does not require an internet browser to setup an account, accept a use agreement, or enter a password before accessing their Wi-Fi serice. If the location requires any of these items, you will not be able to connect to the Nintendo WFC.

  • Make sure that the DS is within 30 feet of the wireless access point and facing in its general direction. Signal strength can vary, depending on where the access point's signal is coming from. (Please do not sit or stand in places that will interfere with the location's customers or staff.)

  • Orientate the Nintendo DS so that your body or other objects (such as walls, plants, furniture, and other people) are not blocking the signal. Also, make sure there is no interference from wireless phones (cell phones are okay).

  • If the connection continues to fail, this Hotspot may have their router set up in a manner that is not compatible with the Nintendo WFC.
    If you have multiple connection files saved to your Nintendo DS, the error message you received can help determine which connection file may be experiencing a problem:
    • Errors ending in 0 = connection file 1
    • Errors ending in 1 = connection file 2
    • Errors ending in 2 = connection file 3
    • Errors ending in 3 = Nintendo Wi-Fi USB Connector
