* I was told that the Black Cat turn their wifi off at 4pm to avoid people getting drinks spilled on their laptops.

Some McDonalds restaurants offer free wireless Internet although Dominic says he has been to several that are NOT free wifi, they are unsecured, pre-paid wifi spots and they only offer 60m a day. Only if you are a Telstra post-paid customer will you be able to retrieve a SMS Token, by which you will be charged 25c for the token and 20c per minute after that.

Did you know WiFi Technology was invented in Australia
The 802.11 technology behind WiFi was invented in 1996 by Australian scientists from the Commonwealth Scientific and Industrial Research Organisation (CSIRO) in Canberra.

Free WiFi hotspots coming to Melbourne CBD
GoConnect (ASX: GCN) says it expects the free WiFi services it is planning to offer in the Melbourne CBD in conjunction with ISP Netbay Internet should launch by the end of February 2012. Read Free WiFi hotspots coming to Melbourne CBD

Melbourne Hotspots List
This page is the most frustrating list we publish because venues are keen to tell us when they launch a service but fail to tell us when they stop.

We also get 'grief mail' from tight-arses saying (in a whingy voice) 'this place isn't free, or its tethered, or you have to buy something first.. well surprise surprise! So, we got tired of the abuse and renamed the list from FREE to Wireless Internet (WiFi) Locations.

Don’t use free WiFi


I can hear the whingy tight-arses already.. what, we shouldn't use free wifi?

No, is the simple answer according to leading anti-virus software company AVG (we use them for all of our computers and find them very (very) good.

Using free WiFi may be tempting, by it’s certainly not worth the risk! Public wireless networks generally don’t have adequate security measures in place to protect the data you transmit. This means a crafty cybercriminal could potentially intercept your online interactions, access your data and/or steal your passwords!

Only use WiFi networks that you trust and know to be fully secure (i.e. password protected). Also ensure that you don’t unknowingly connect to free WiFi networks by switching Ask to Join Networks on.
