Has anyone else noticed this? It’s happened to me twice so far. I’ve not yet got a fixed ADSL line so have to hop hot-spots. But yesterday, when on an open wireless network, I found that although the meter said there was a strong connection (3–4 bars), I wasn’t actually able to access any website. I hadn’t done anything to my computer but did wonder if it was me. But someone sitting near me said to me “no wireless”, so obviously he’d had that trouble too. I then got the same response from a totally different open network in another cafe. This also happened to me once before, a couple of weeks ago.
Is it the host? Or something else? In case it’s relevant, I’m using a Mac.
