Solve Hotspot Woes

Send mail at a hotspot, even if your ISP won’t normally let you do it, and make sure your hotspot connection doesn’t get interrupted by “stuttering."

WiFi hotspots are great ways to connect to the Internet when you’re away from home. They’re practically everywhere these days, from coffee shops to airports, hotels, and even entire sections of metropolitan areas.

But hotspots, despite their convenience, come with problems as well. Depending on your normal ISP, you might not be able to send mail at hotspots. And if you’re in an area that has lots of hotspots close to one another, you might find your connection stuttering ; your current connection might drop, and you might find your PC automatically trying to jump from hotspot to hotspot, leaving you in the cold.
