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

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.

    Windows 7 is so easy they don't need to print instructions?

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

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

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

    First 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.

    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?
