I try to connect to many unsecured Wi-Fi networks from my laptop. (e.g. BT OpenZone) Before connecting, when I check, the signal strength is shown good. When I connect to them, it gets connected but always says Local Access only or Limited Connectivity and I can never access the Internet. I am wondering what could be causing this?
1] Either the message which says Good Signal Strength is deceptive and in reality it is not good.
2] Problem in my Laptop Wi-Fi adapter (Broadcom adapter)
3] Some network setting on my laptop which is blocking it or causing this lack of Internet access.
Can anybody give some pointers?
