Protect Your Wireless Connection
February 9th, 2011 in General
The WiFi alliance is currently running a campaign to urge users to protect themselves with WPA2 encryption. They recently released a podcast regarding the subject.
WiFi has become the standard for wireless connections but like any connection, protection is necessary. Wardriving and other unsavory practices put your files, settings, and security and risk. The best way to avoid unwelcome visitors to your WiFi connection is to enable security on your router. Don’t forget to change the connection id and password to something other than the standard. Check your router/gateway manufacturer’s website or manual for information on changing your settings.
WiFi.com reminds you to be safe and secure. Protect yourself from attacks.
New Webpages at WiFi.com
February 4th, 2011 in General
We launched a new homepage at WiFi.com yesterday. Additionally, you can see the changes to the blog. We hope you like the changes.
Over the next few weeks, all the core pages will undergo a new look and feel. Along with the look and feel changes, we are now offering a plethora of new wifi products and services.
What is missing, for the time being, is the wifi hotspots find tool. This tool is being overhauled for better functionality. We are also updating the wifi hotspots datadase with thousands of new hotspot locations. Stay tuned. We will keep you up to date through this blog or on the main WiFi.com homepage.
WiFi.com Shifting Gears
December 20th, 2010 in In the News
As you may have noticed, our blog has been off collecting dust for some time now. We were working diligently with our BETA testers to get our wifi client nailed. In conjunction with this we determined through independent research we were better off moving toward a web-based client. Furthermore, we want to offer our visitors the best wifi hotspot directory: Free, Paid, or otherwise.
For the time being we are moving servers and unfortunately the hotspots database is not working correctly. The database was connected to our client and the new one will be untied from the client, so this will take a few days to get it all converted.
For those of you trying to use or download the client, it is no longer available on any platform. There are specific directions to remove the client from your system on the FAQ page.
We hope you continue to use our wifi database of hotspots and also check out some of the deals we will be offering in the way of low-cost wifi and wimax services. These will be available very soon and we will update you right here and on the main page of the site.
