Why “free WIFI” is there but isn’t

From techdirt.com comes this…”When a computer running an older version of XP can’t find any of its “favorite” wireless networks, it will automatically create an ad hoc network with the same name as the last one it connected to — in this case, ‘Free Public WiFi.’ “

Great mysteries of the [XP] world. They keep on coming. Have a great day!
