This is McDonald's McGuide to Getting on McWi-Fi

By - Source: Twitter | B 37 comments

Three steps for Big Mac users.

Are you looking for some free Wi-Fi? Your local café is a good bet, especially if it's a Starbucks. But if you're not the coffee type or maybe you're just in need of some McNuggets, then McDonald's "restaurants" now offers free Wi-Fi too.

While most people should know by now how to connect to free, commercial hotspots, McDonald's has made a quick startup guide for connecting to its Wi-Fi.

With all the different versions of Windows and some (unnecessary to tweak) settings, the Mac OS X instructions look downright straightforward and simple. More time for Apple users to enjoy their Big "Mac", I suppose.

    Gamer-girlWindows 7 is so easy they don't need to print instructions?


    Remember, they have to include instructions for people who don't know how to use their computers. Probably not your average Tom's member.

    99.9% of people will be able to connect as easy with the mac. Who uses a static IP or custom DNS server on their laptop's wifi network controller.

    And for Toms site, really, I have to click on the picture to enlarge, which just opens it again in a page and then clicking that opens it in a new window, not even sized to the picture or anything. all Tom's photo enlarges are like that, and its the stupidest design for an enlarge.

    I'd rather not patronize a restaurant that serves ground hog balls.

    More importantly, why don't they make it a little easier to connect?

    ReggieRayFirst off I'm surprised it is not in Spanish too. With said, Wal-Mart and McDonald's patrons are basically the same group of people (Obama voters) and I doubt half of them could even read the instructions.

    And you nutjobs say liberals are the elitists.

    An under-informed Windows 7 user may think that their laptop won't work with McWifi. How long has it been since Windows 7's release (rhetorical; the answer is about 2 years), and why is it that the guide only offers instructions for Vista users?

    Kind of funny they have Mac instructions. Unless McDonalds has become an elitest and overpriced brand, Mac users will never be seen there.

    3rd? It's been WAY more than that... Most people seem to have learned to just ignore him, though.

    Putting restaurants in quotation marks is really unnessecary. Furthermore, the coffee at McDonald's is great (at any rate, better than the food)! I prefer it to Tim Horton's in Canada. They even added a lot of products to their selection lately.

    I'm not defending McDonald's, I'm just a coffee enthusiast! ;)
