I get this question quite often. My friends are often traveling via airports or other such mass transit means and need to hop onto a network connected to the Internet in order to send a message or check email or some such thing. And, it never fails that the only network my friends have access to is a pay-per-use network. These pay-per-use wireless networks often charge top dollar for lousy service. Not especially the best business model in the world; but they figure they have a monopoly on Internet access within the train station or airport, so you will have to pay for the poor service, use it and shut-up. Well, I have good news, there are often hidden wireless networks that you can use to send that email, IM or log into your private network. And, I will show you how to find those hidden wireless networks in the following paragraph.
Free Internet can no longer hide from you. Throw on your sleuth hat and grab that corn pipe. Lets go on a ride to find that networks with accessible wireless signals. Many of my friends are not network wizards; I happen to be pretty good with finding and configuring wireless networks. However, my fiends cannot carry me in their back pockets as they travel; so, I give them the following tips: I have become a master at finding and accessing wireless settings. Networks can be tricky things for non-technology inclined people. Wireless networks can be found with many different tools. One of those tools is a laptop computer; anymore nowadays laptops seem to be out-of-vogue, so most likely you will looking for a wireless network using some sort of smart phone, tablet or mobile detector. The detectors I show on my blog make for an easy way to find those hidden signals you should covet. Wireless networks will normally appear in the network and sharing center of a laptop, most mobile devices will display available networks in some fashion as well, my detectors show signal level, protection or not and in most instances the best means of connection. The ways to ultimately find a network to connect to varies by tool and operating system.
In the end; the easiest way to locate an open network is to use the appropriate tool for the device you wish to connect with. A laptop will require a wi-fi NIC card turned on, a mobile device will auto-display and my detectors will automatically read and display all required data on networks in range. No longer can the Internet hide from you while you travel. And, no longer do you have to pay high prices for poor service. Use a wireless network detector and surf the net using someone else’s connection.
