Summary

Here are the key points to remember from this chapter:

  • There is no one single good way to locate all Wi-Fi hotspots.

  • It's easy to “get down and boogie” using wireless at Starbucks or other locations hosting hotspots.

  • Online directories are a great source of information about Wi-Fi hotspots and are central to the Wi-Fi movement.

  • It's problematic finding Wi-Fi hotspot information if you are not already online. Solutions range from asking people, to using a Wi-Fi finder, to reading war chalk marks.

  • Besides being a wireless protocol, Wi-Fi is a way of life and a cultural movement.
