WiFi hotspots

I don't know if "your home network" is the appropriate section but nothing else fit either.

I use wifi hotspots when I visit family in New Hampshire.  I don't know how it works but the signal is really strong and the speed is great.  On the map of wifi locations, I see the nearest is half a mile away.  Is this possible?  Is it possible that there is one closer and it doesn't show up on the map ? We are in a small apartment complex and lots of people have wifi.


Anyone know?  Thanks!


Re: WiFi hotspots

You are likely connecting to one that is closer than a half mile. That map of hotspots isn't necessarily *gospel*.

Re: WiFi hotspots

Thanks.  If that's the case, this hotspot might be right in the next apartment.  The hotspots shown on the map are all close to each other and one is an outside one.  I really don't understand how they work but I'm really happy that they do.
