Ok I like to cancel my internet to save a few dollars . My problem is why cant I connect to free wifi , everytime I try it gets timed out tried for over an hour with no success . I live in boston there no reason why I can't get something . Any help would be nice , Thanks ..........
Know that you have no control over these free wifi hot spots thus many things are out of your control [network services,] moreover, not all ports will be avaible to your system [NAT type 3]
Free Wifi hot spots are setup to be accessed in different ways:
1-Some are truly open [no password required to connect.]
2-Some require a pin/password which is given to you by the clerk or presented to you via sign on a table/wall.
3-Then there are those free hotspots that are accessed via web portal which require you to accept the prividers term of service and/or enter a pin/password.
The PS3 can connect to the first 2 but those free wifi hot spots that require you to connect via a web interface the PS3 can't connect to.
For the first 2, on your PS3, turn off Media Server and then try to connect. See if this yield any good results.
Still can't connect to anything I don't know why other then I may need a password or something . I got plenty that are obove 90% signal strength . What good is wifi if you can't get connected , don't think there just going to give out there password .
Yeah, especially when you're trying to get something for FREE. Really, they should check with everyone first to ensure the FREE wifi meets your needs. I really think it's highly unprofessional and selfish of them to make it so difficult for you. Must be someone you can call to complain about the FREE wifi.
