I sometimes have networks show up on my iBook's wi-fi indicator, and then I can seemingly 'join' those networks without entering a password. But then I open my browser and it won't call anything up. Are these phantom networks? Or do I need to play around with the settings?
Similarly, I get 'computer to computer networks' that show up all the time, and those never enable web surfing. Is there some way to jump on those? What's the use of a network if you can't use it, after all?
