Is HP G61 a wifi hotspot?

You cannot setup your laptop as a WiFi hotspot, but if you have a wireless router and it is connected to a DSL or cable modem you can allow all your wireless connected devices to connect to the wireless router so they can communicate between each other and connect to the Internet.

I cannot get access to WIFI. It reports an error. I have never been able to access WIFI since day of purchase. I would like to use it the Netbook but I can't. At first it was asking for server,...

WIFI is wireless internet service. You can use WIFI on your netbook to get on the internet. You can also use a corded connection like an ethernet cable to accomplish the same thing.

In order to use WIFI, you need to access to the account that is providing it. There are many ways to get access to wireless internet service. Some places have "WIFI hotspots" and if you are in range your netbook can pick up the signal by clicking on the little button marked "wireless" (or look for the picture of the wireless antenna) to have it search and connect. Places that include wireless hotspots or free WIFI are Starbucks, and local colleges or Universities. You can purchase your own wireless internet service from any local provider like Version or Charter Cable. Make sure to ask for a DSL modem with a wireless connection built in when you order service. Your account name and password are listed on the bottom of the modem and/or router. If you are unsure of which ones to use, call your provider for more details.

Wireless hot spots usually do not require passwords. Just click the wireless button to pick up a signal on the front of your netbook and follow the prompts on the screen to connect.

I would suggest purchasing your own connection instead of tyring to find an unsecured (no password protection) network that belongs to a neighbor to try and use theirs. The cost is approx $ 25 - $ 30 per month. Check with your local telephone provider for the deals available in your area.

Yes, easy way would be through Connectify. It turns almost any Windows 7 OS PC into a virtual wifi router. The software is free. Basically, it will share whatever internet connection your netbook is getting via a virtual wifi hotspot that your other wireless devices can connect to.

thank you for your query

As long as your laptp has wi fi functionality then you can use it in local hotspots, the only 2 things you will need to do are

1) Switch ti on (normally a switch on the front of the laptop)
2) Once switched on you will get a message on your screen advising wireless connections found, simply choose the one you want to connect and click ok

How to i get a wireless wap key for my netbook. I want to use it in hotspots in uk

The WPA key is the encryption key to secure the wireless router from unauthorized access.
You do not need this key to connect into free wi-fi hotspots at the airport, MacDonalds, Starbucks etc. When you detect these wi-fi sites you can just click the connect button.

Brand new aspire 5532 wireless lan is on, wants a router connection, can't I connect via hotspot?

If you are at a area with a hotspot that is not encrypted then yes, you should be able to connect. Places such as Starbucks, McDonalds, and miscellaneous other places do have free hotspots whereas some places like Barnes & Noble (until recently) you actually had to pay to be able to access the wireless hotspot.
