    Why is it that my computer on provides "local connectivity" at times. What
    does "local connectivity" mean?

    How can I avoid this problem. I go to a 'hotspot' expecting to have
    'internet connectivity' and I cannot get on the net. I have a strong signal
    but the connection icon tells me I only have 'local connectivity'. This is
    very frustrating and there appears to be no way to get internet connectivity.
