Many hotels in Europe offer free WiFi connections and the hotels will provide you with the necessary sign-on information when you check in.

Your computer should automatically find the connection then all you have to do is sign on with the information the hotel provided.

In addition, many hotels also have business centers where free computers are available which provide instant access to the internet. In those cases I recommend using the hotel computer to protect information that you have on your laptop.

Hacking is a major problem in Europe and often hackers will have locked onto your computer within seconds after you have logged in...especially on public WiFi networks.

This can and does happen even on "secure" sites. You need to be aware of this and avoid accessing any websites where you have confidential information.

Once you return from France, I would suggest running an immediate full system anti-virus scan and I would change all of the passwords in all of the accounts I accessed while I was away.

I'm living in France and my google chrome defaults to france. i want it to default to the US. How do I make this happen?


hello there, sorry but there is no way you can achieve this. At least with your present internet connection, unless you are able to get an internet system which registers a US IP address as the google chrome uses the IP address which your internet connection registers to determine what location to register on your google chrome when it opens. Sorry for any inconvenience.
Hope this support has been helpful?
Thank you for visiting FixYa.

Connecting my Laptop to the internet in France


Alternative to using a dial-up modem via the telecom system is to connect via an internet service provider. If this is your home, then you will need to have either DSL or cable piped in via a provider (either the French telecom company or another "ISP"). This service is usually considered "broadband" and is faster than dial-up modelm. If the place is managed by someone else, ask ahead if they have wireless or ethernet (wired) internet service. Your laptop likely has the connector for wired ethernet service, but check if it has wireless capability. If it doesn't you will need to purchase a wireless NIC. These are available in USB and PC-Card formats depending on what you have. A final resort if the choices above do not work, is to get a PC-Card 3G data network card. These are 3G telecom modems that plug right into your laptop. They will come with a monthly access charge similar to a 3G cellular phone (uses the same network). But, it is very important that you check that there is service in the locale that you are going to use it in. These work well for remote locations, but again, you must check coverage first.
