How to Hotspot

We’ve all been in a hot spot…like the time you were three days into your mother-in-law’s visit, you happened to blurt out a few disparaging words and discovered she was lurking (as mother-in-laws have been known to do) around the corner; OR the time when April 15th snuck up on you like a super ninja and you hadn’t yet filed your taxes. 

Well, my friend, I have some good news. There are more pleasant hot spots in which to find yourself! Here’s what to do when you want to hotspot (the good kind):

Go to the Wi-Fi icon. You should find it on the bottom right corner of your computer screen or the top taskbar on your cell phone. If your computer is not connected to Wi-Fi, you will notice an asterisk on the icon. Click on that icon and when your available Wi-Fi options appear, simply choose the hotspot icon you want.

If a hotspot requires a password, you will be prompted to enter it before you are connected. Some public hotspots which do not require a password may direct you to a set of instructions you will need to follow in order to connect. You will also be provided with an option to connect automatically to the Wi-Fi hotspot whenever you are in range.

Sounds a heck of a lot better than some of those other kinds of hotspots you can find yourself in, huh?
