How to Connect to an AT&T Hotspot

by Mario Calhoun

Wireless access through AT&T is available throughout your city with the AT&T hot spot service, which connects your laptop to AT&T high-speed wireless Internet service. While AT&T hot spots are available for free for AT&T subscribers, non-subscribers can also connect to the wireless service for a fee of $3.99 per session as of April 2011. Your Internet connection remains strong as long as you stay within the hot spot's Wi-Fi range, which is determined by your laptop's connection-signal icon.

1

Click the Windows icon on your laptop's desktop and then click "Control Panel."

2

Click "Network and Internet" in the Control Panel and then click "Connect to a network" underneath the "Network and Sharing Center" section.

3

Click "attwifi" in the list of available networks and then click "Connect." Launch your Internet browser, which re-directs you to the AT&T Wi-Fi hot spot login page.

4

Type your AT&T user name and then click the domain drop-down menu. Click your domain name, which is "att.net," "sbcglobal.net" or "ameritech.net" depending on your AT&T email address.

5

Enter your account password and then click the checkbox next to the "I agree" section to agree to the terms of service. Click "Login" to begin using the Wi-Fi hot spot.
