I often go to cafes that offer free wireless access to get some work done. After I’ve inputed the password, sometimes my airPort indicator will show that I am receiving full reception (I have a macbook, btw), but I’ll still not be able to access any webpage or download mail. After awhile, sometimes the airPort indicator will change to an exclamation point. I would say this happens to me maybe in about half the cafes I visit.
Has anyone else had this problem? Does this sound like something that has to do with the router settings or my computer? Is this a Mac/PC thing because usually the other pc laptop customers seem to be surfing along with no problem. Any help is welcome.
