    I have a laptop and I'm trying to find out if I can use it at Starbucks and
    Panera and if so how? Do I need any special software or do I just connect to
    theirs? I don't understand how it works...obviously.

  2. Hi
    If the Computer has a Wireless card that is functional and active you click
    on the Tray bar Network icon.
    A popup menu would open with all the neighborhood Wireless Signal would
    You then click on the Starbucks connection and it should connect.
    Please Note that you will be able to connect only to Open networks that do
    not need password to connect (like the starbucks).
    If a network is secured you have ask the owner for the security parameters
    before you can attempt to connect.
