Where to Find Wi-FI

By Allyson Westcot

One of the common tips folks give for finding Wi-Fi is to use a Wi-Fi index. But you may not have realized you’d need to discover a spot before you set out that day. What good is a directory if you are unable to get online to use it? You could make a bit of a habit of checking directories for the areas you will go to each day and saving that information on your computer. There are one or two other things you can keep in mind to help in finding available Wi-Fi.

Coffee bars are pretty much every mobile worker’s default when trying to find Wi-Fi. If you want a connection and you can see a cafe, it’s worth a try because most offer it. There are also several other places that may very well surprise you. Look for free Wi-Fi signs in bistro windows, as well. Some places have free Wi-Fi in McDonald’s restaurants, as an example, so fast food chains could be an option.

Libraries are great places to get a connection with your rugged laptop. Some offer it free to patrons, while a few others may need you to request the user-name and password each day. It should not matter if you’re local or a inhabitant of the library as long as you’re inside the building. Some libraries may have unsecured connections you can even use from the carpark.

Hotels regularly offer Wi-Fi though most will most likely require a name and password given only to their guests. If you’re in need of a fast connection, however, a hotel could be worth a try. They may allow you to use the connection for a little charge.

There are little gadgets you can get and software you can install that scan for Wi-Fi connections so long as you’ll let them. As soon as you hit an open connection, they’ll alert you. These are helpful if you’ve got a laptop with a good battery that can last some time, depending naturally on how long you have to search. If you’re gadget-prone, you may actually enjoy using these. They can definitely help you find a connection in an unfamiliar area.

You can find Wi-Fi with your Panasonic Toughbook, or better yet, purchase one from Rugged Depot that comes with built-in broadband. Check out today for rugged computers that can handle almost anything.
