I cannot access the BT hotspots unless I am in a room with the BT Router on. So what is the point of the hotspots if you are somewhere away from home and the BT Router? 

 

I can see other private hotspots like banks but they are too far away.

Thanks Guys

 

I use Skype to enable two housebound club members to hear and see any speaker giving talks at our meetings. I am allowed use a router in an adjoining room at the Blind Centre as the manger kindly told us the Password. But we maybe changing to another place for meetings that does not have a router nearby.

Your built in aerial that sends and revives the wifi signal might not have a very good signal strength you might want to think about a booster aerial. It would be best to research or ask here if anyone knows a good one.

 

Example of a booster, it just plugs into your usb: http://www.tp-link.com/en/products/details/cat-11_TL-WN8200ND.html

No problem. Well if you do get another one the one above in the link provided is the one I have and does a good job it has the bonus of being in English and coming with a small set up disk.
