Forgive me if this question is a little dumb - I'm new to wireless networking. I've got my home wireless system running fine - I use a laptop and two main PC's on the network and can access the internet and all files on each pc throughout the house. But every time I have tried to surf via a Wi Fi hotspot outside the home via the laptop (so far in three coffee shops ) I can connect to the network but can't get an internet connection. I have done a little bit of war driving and can connect to one or two networks and access the internet in my neighbourhood, but every time I walk into a Wi Fi Coffee shop it's a no -go Is it a simple setting I have overlooked reach the internet or do these guys simply set up the network and forget to pay their IP subscription or something?
