The 802.11g Wi-Fi standard is so widely accepted that it has become the industry standard for wireless networking. Customers with older hardware with IEEE 802.11b standard can also access our network. IEEE 802.11g is an established and mature standard. In fact, many laptop manufacturers actually include Wi-Fi cards in standard configurations.
- Do I need to load software or change settings on my laptop?
There is no need to load additional software as long as you have an operating system, web browser, 802.11b or g wireless card. However, you may need to adjust your hardware settings.
- Can I connect to my company's network?
If your company allows remote access then you will be able to connect to the network. As an extra security measure, many companies use VPNs. The Wi-Fi Hotspot network is generally compatible with this software.
