As long as your Netbook has a WIFI card in it, it will work anyhwere it is in range of a router (hot spot). As far as I know it does and so it will work in the public places like McDonalds and StarBucks. If your neighbor has WIFI and you can connect then you can "piggy back" on his router, but be warned that they could change the settings anytime and you might lose the ability to surf the web from your neighbors connection.

It should work fine if the public places have open (non-secure) WI-FI. Try it at your local library.
I would not use your neighbor non-secure WIFI since it can be trace back to you and it is not fair to use your neighbor for free unless you ask your neighbor or offer to share the cost which is probably the best thing to do to reduce the cost.

Not working wifi on my lenovo g360 laptop, all drivers are working properly. And switch is already on. if u guys know about that, help me pls


Make sure Wi-Fi is turned on your device
Make sure flight mode is turned off
Make sure your selecting the correct wireless name in range and using the correct network password to connect, Wireless networks with low signals will show connected but you will not be able to browse the internet
Check your router and modern, Make sure the lights are as mentioned in the user guide of your service provider
First figure out if the problem is with your Lenovo Device or the Wi-Fi network:
Device/Machine problems: Try connecting to the Wi-Fi network with another device, like a laptop computer or friend's phone. If any other devices can connect to and use the wireless network, the problem is most likely specific to your device.
Network/Router problems: Check to see if your device can connect to a Wi-Fi network at another location, like a friend's house or a public network. If it can, the problem is most likely specific to the Wi-Fi network.
Then try the troubleshooting steps below based on whether the problem is with your device or the network.

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 />

Why is My HP printer not connecting to Wi-fi?


You sound as though you wish the printer to directly connect to the laptop via wi-fi. This is not usually the case in home networks. Most home networks use a wi-fi router to link all wi-fi components. This is because your laptop is not capable of handling the routing duties itself, nor is the printer (normally). The wi-fi router assigns the IP addresses that the devices use to communicate to the router and each other. That said, IF you ARE using a router, perhaps you are not entering the security code that the router needs to allow the device to attach to the network. If you are NOT using a router, then you still MIGHT be able to use the printer with the laptop if it has a "direct connect" capability. You would need to look at the printer documentation and instructions on how to set it up. Unfortunately, wi-fi isn't as simple as just turning it on an waiting for a connection to take place.

Where can I get free internet for lap top hp


I do not believe you can get free internet for laptop unless you are using a public wi-fi service. If your laptop has got a wireless interface then you can scan for available wi-fi networks and then select an unsecured one with the most strong signal. Some public wi-fi hot spots give you a temporary code to use. Make sure you have a strong virus protections software when you use free internet and try not to use it for banking services unless you have a very secure banking website with encryption keys and devices.

No data internet connection


Connecting to the Internet without a Wi-Fi data plan isn't a difficult process even for a novice at utilizing and joining wireless networks. Whether you are looking to join a public Wi-Fi hotspot network or a neighbor's private Wi-Fi network with their permission, get your computer online and browsing the Internet without the use of your own Wi-Fi data plan, saving money in the process. Note these steps to get you connected in just a few minutes.

Move to an area that offers free public Wi-Fi or to an area where you believe you are close enough to pick up a neighbor's Wi-Fi signal. In the latter case, check with your neighbor beforehand to ensure it is allowed that you utilize their Wi-Fi network. Using a private network without permission is illegal. Boot up your laptop. Allow Windows or the Mac operating system to load up fully on the laptop. Click on the wireless icon on your computer's desktop area. In Windows, you will find this icon on the right side of the bottom toolbar. It appears to be a computer monitor icon with small radio waves reaching out of it. Alternatively, on a Mac laptop click on the Wi-Fi icon on the top right toolbar in the desktop area. This icon will look like a set of radio waves extending upward. Look over the list that appears once you click on the wireless icon. This list will present all the wireless network options that are within the range of your laptop. Avoid any that present with a "lock" icon beside them, because these require passwords. If you are looking to join a password-protected network like one offered by a neighbor, request the password ahead of time. In the event of a public network at a local business, a password will not be required. Click on the network you intend to join. Input the appropriate password at this point, if joining a password-protected network. Also, choose the type of security encryption the private Wi-Fi network is using. Your computer will often have this auto-selected, but you may need to select either "WPA" or "WEP" security manually. Click "Enter" on your keyboard. If you do not have the necessary password or are unsure as to the security encryption type, either contact the network administer or click "Cancel" and join a public Wi-Fi network. Allow several moments for your computer to join the network. You will receive a notification on your Windows or Mac toolbar when it does. Launch your Internet browser of choice and begin utilizing the Internet without having to rely on your own Wi-Fi data plan

I cant get my tablet to connect to wifi


Android tablets, unlike Android phones, don't require mobile phone service or a contract with a mobile phone company, and several models use Wi-Fi for network connectivity. The Android 3.0 operating system, known as Honeycomb, is designed specifically for tablets, and has the same features for Wi-Fi connections that are available with earlier versions of Android. Android tablets support wireless connections encrypted by both WEP and the more-secure WPA.

Tap the "Apps" menu on the tablet screen. Touch "Settings." Touch "Wireless and Networks" and select "Wi-Fi Settings." Tap the "Wi-Fi" box to turn on Wi-Fi. The Android tablet scans for available Wi-Fi networks and displays them on-screen under "Wi-Fi Networks." Tap an available Wi-Fi network. Touch "Connect" if it is unsecured, or enter the password or passcode for the encrypted connection.
Tap "Connect."

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.
