2 - Wireless netbook connection using your home ISP
Another way to get online with netbooks if you're at home is to connect wirelessly to your home router.
It's a very easy process - just turn the netbook on and it will seek out your router. You get a fast connection, good security (if you tell your router to use WPA encryption) and it will usually work anywhere in your house or garden. Several netbooks, laptops or other computers can use your internet connection this way from the same router, so your family and friends can use their netbooks at the same time.
3 - Wifi netbook connection out and about
A really cheap way to get online when you're out and about is Wifi. Many busy locations - pubs, hotels, shopping malls - have "wifi hotspots" which are simply powerful wireless routers that you can use to connect your netbooks wirelessly to the net.
Some are free and can be used by any computers that are nearby. Others are owned by telecomms operators like BT Openzone or mycloud and you need to pay to use them. Monthly subscriptions or pay as you go are available. So are these free and cheap choices ideal for using with cheap netboks?
For anything other than general browsing on netbooks, beware of wifi. The free ones have no security at all, and the others have password protection, but the data you send and receive is not encrypted. This means anyone in the vicinity could snoop and listen in on what you were doing. I don't bother with wifi for this reason.
If you have a wireless router you must know the password you made when you set the router up.
Try also to look in your controlpanel network and shareringcenter.
Hope this was helpfull.
