Can anyone tell me what is the range from both Openzone Hotspots and Fon enabled routers. Just wondering how easy they are to find.
Having read the advice about finding the hotspots by map, how on earth do you find them if you are in a strange place and need access. Obv the map isnt going to work until access is gained. If this is a daft question, dont flame me, just throw something heavy in my direction, its been a long day.
I used to sit outside MacDonalds and use BT Fon, theres plenty pf them around.
The map is only a guide for dmoestic hotspot, as it is situated in the centre of the post code, not outside the house where it is located, the range can vary, mine can be seen up 100 feet on a good day.
Lots of factors to be considered, the enviroment being the big one, wall's, tall buildings ect. The best thing really is to wip out the trusty Tri-corder (laptop, mobile device) and start scanning what's around you then playing hot and cold with the signal strength.
