how to get free WiFi

Happiness is getting Free WiFi. In this internet infused era, we all want to stay online and for this WiFi is certainly playing a major role. So, do you want to know how to get free WiFi anywhere?

In this article, we will be telling you about the different ways following which you can get free WiFi with ease. So, let’s get started:

What is WiFi?

how-to-get-free-wifi

If you have even slightest of the idea about internet, then we need not to tell you that What WiFi is? But for the sake of easy comprehension, we will be telling you what WiFi is.

As per Wikipedia,

Wi-Fi or WiFi is a local area wireless computer networking technology that allows electronic devices to connect to the network, mainly using the 2.4 gigahertz (12 cm) UHF and 5 gigahertz (6 cm) SHF ISM radio bands.
The Wi-Fi Alliance defines Wi-Fi as any “wireless local area network” (WLAN) product based on the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers’ (IEEE) 802.11 standards.

Basic methods of WiFi encryption.

Before proceeding forward, you must know the basic methods of WiFi encryptions that contribute to the security of the WiFi network. There are primarily three types of WiFi encryption methods, and those are as follows.

WEP: It stands for Wired Equivalent Privacy. WEP was adopted as a free WiFi security standard in September 1999. This form of encryption is easy to crack if configured inappropriately as the security level is of the mediocre level. It’s highly vulnerable and has been officially retired in 2004. Though, many institutions still use the WEP method of encryption.

WPA: WPA stands for Wired Protected Access. It was introduced in order to overcome the shortcomings of the WEP security standard. The most common WPA configuration is WPA-PSK (Pre-shared Key). The key which is used in this is 256 bit which is way better than the key used in the WEP standard.

WPA2: As obvious it is that WPA2 stands for Wired Protected Access 2. This provides a high amount of security to the network.

How to get free WiFi anywhere?

It’s damn easy to create a WiFi hotspot on android devices but in order to create a WiFi hotspot for iOS devices; you need to jailbreak your iOS device.

How to Put a Password on Wifi

Nowadays, if you see a group of youngsters with the mobilephones in their hands, you can easily understand that there is an active Wifi connection in the vicinity. The higher the number of devices consuming a wireless network connection, the slower will be the speed each of them gets.

Are you a wifi user? Then chances are you doubted about the number of devices that use your network connection several times, didn’t you? The best way to protect your wifi from unauthenticated usage is to put a password on it.

So, today I am here with a tutorial on how to put a password on Wifi.

How to Put a Password on Wifi?

How-to-Put-a-Password-on-Wifi

Setting a password on your wifi network is no brainer even though it includes several steps.

Before asking yourself ‘how to change my wifi password’, you need to know the administrative password that helps you log in to your router.

You can follow the steps I have listed below to know how to change your wifi password.

Step 1: As I already stated, you must know the administrative password of your router. If you changed it in the past, you might already know it. Otherwise, we have to find the default username and password in order to log directly into your router for changing the wifi password.

I have a helpful resource for you to get this done. It is a website called routerspassword.com. Visit the site now.

How-to-Put-a-Password-on-Wifi

Step 2: You will get a page exactly similar to the image I have given above. Here, you have to select the manufacturer of your router. In my case, it is D-LINK.

After choosing the manufacturer, click Find My Password button given under the drop-down menu.

Step 3: As you can see, the page you are given will not have any credentials. We all know that a manufacturer has a lot of router models. So, you have to choose a model number at this step.

My model number is DSL-2730U. To make the search process quicker, you can press Ctrl+ F. It will get you a search field where you can enter your model number. (Check the image for details.)

How-to-Put-a-Password-on-Wifi

Unfortunately, my search ended up in nothing. Don’t worry! If this happens to you, just press backspace multiple times slowly. Stop pressing when it finds any result.

Step 4: Look at the right side of the model number you got. There, you will get the username and password. If you get multiple options (like I got), you have to try out each one.

How-to-Put-a-Password-on-Wifi

In my case, username and password are the same- admin. So the first option worked.

Step 5: Now, you have to go to the router login page. Actually, this can be done using the configuration disk that comes within the router package. But I am giving this method here because you don’t need any external disk or something to know how to change your wifi password.

You can access the login page by entering 192.168.1.1, 192.168.0.1, or 192.168.2.1 into the address bar of your browser.

Step 6: Check out the image given above. You will get a basic form like this to enter the credentials. Do it and press Enter right away.

Step 7: The next window you see will be your router settings page. You see the D-Link header as my router is manufactured by them. This will not be the case of an Asus router, TP-Link router, or router from another manufacturer.

How-to-Get-Free-WiFi-Anywhere

Before getting to know how to get wifi password, you have to make sure that wireless network is enabled on your router.

Click on Setup for that and you will be given a page as an image, given below.

How-to-Get-Free-WiFi-Anywhere

Step 8:  Then, hover your mouse pointer over Wireless Setup. You can see two options there- Wireless Basics and Wireless Security. Choose the first one there and make sure that Disable Wireless LAN Interface is unchecked.

How-to-Get-Free-WiFi-Anywhere

Don’t forget to Apply Changes.

Step 9: You have to go to Wireless Setup again to select the second option here; that is Wireless Security. That is the option you need to select for changing any security settings related to your WLAN.

Step 10: I am going to explain each of the settings there.

How-to-Get-Free-WiFi-Anywhere

Encryption: – Most of the browsers available today support several encryption types including WEP, WPA, WPA2, etc. Choose WPA2 if you can because it is the most secure encryption type for WLAN.

Note that old routers do not have this encryption. Moreover, some old devices do not support WPA2 protected wifi connection as well. WPA2 is of different types, WPA2 AES, WPA2 TKIP and WPA2 Mixed.

The words come after WPA2 indicate the encryption algorithm. Advanced Encryption Standard is secure than TKIP and relatively new as well.

Pre-Shared Key Format: – You can choose between passphrase and Hex (64 characters). If you choose the first one, you can create your wifi password as any other password. The second option lets you enter hexadecimal characters only.

Pre-Shared Key: – This is the one you are looking for. The label of this field may vary according to different router manufacturers. But, you can identify this one with the field inside of which you can find a few asterisks (only if you have a password already).

So, I hope now you know where to put your new wifi password. Yeah, you have to enter it in the Pre-Shared Key field.

That’s all. You won’t scream out loud ‘what is my wifi password’ anymore.

Wrapping Up How to Put a Password on Wifi

I have shared the full steps involved in changing your wifi password. This is the same for putting a password as well. Just follow the steps I have given carefully. Don’t try to make any other changes in case you don’t know what they mean.

The labels or text inside your router dashboard may vary with manufacturers. But the basic process is the same, and you won’t find any difficulty to change the password of any wifi connection if you get access to its dashboard.

You can ask any doubts regarding this.

Taming horses in Minecraft game can be done easily, but you should be patient enough to get it done.

Before getting deep into how to tame a horse on Minecraft, let me tell you some basic information about the same.

What is Minecraft?

Minecraft is not that fancy game overloaded with heavy graphics and fascinating sounds. It simply is a sandbox construction game happening in an imaginary world where you can construct creative and useful things quickly.

The game was created by Markus Persson back in 2009 for personal computers. You have to spend about $22 to get your hands on this game. The demo version does not allow us to play beyond a specific time limit.

The Minecraft game has been creating waves among game lovers right from its launch. In 2014 September, it became one of the best-selling PC games of all times. And in the same month, Microsoft bought it for a whopping $ 2.5 billion.

Though the initial version targeted PCs only, you can download the game on mobiles and consoles now. For the PC version, you only need to download a standalone game file. You can install different mods on Minecraft to experience the fuller capability of the game.

Saddle

Follow the steps given below to know how to tame horses in Minecraft.

Step 1: Obviously, the very first step is to spot a horse. If your motive is to ride a horse, you should tame it. If you don’t tame and try to climb on top of it, the horse rears up causing you to fall.

How-to-Tame-a-Horse-in-Minecraft

Do you know where you can find a horse? Usually, horses are found in plain biomes along with chickens, rabbits, cows, pigs, etc. Check the image given below to know how a plain biome looks like. Here is how to Ride horse in Minecraft.

If you can’t spot a horse, you can summon one using cheats as well.

Step 2: After locating a horse, you have to make sure that nothing is selected on your hot bar. You must have empty hands in order to tame a horse.

Even though you can tame a horse at wherever it stays, I prefer creating a four-sided barrier and bringing the animal into it. Just like you build anything in the game, you can create this also.

Step 3: Then, bring the horse into the small structure you have created. If it can’t enter, you should break some barrier blocks to let it come in.

Step 4: Now starts the game! The process of taming horses is different on different platforms. I am going to explain each one here.

In Computers

Irrespective of which OS you use, a horse in Minecraft can be tamed by mounting on it using the action given below.

Just right-click on the horse and you will be on top of it. The animal will keep on bucking you off. So, you have to do it again and again.

At last, you will see that the horse stops bucking.

In PS3 and PS4

Our aim is the same here too- mounting on the horse.

You can do it by the L2 button on the PS2 controller.

In Xbox

Just press the LT button on the Xbox controller.

Each time you mount, the horse will let you stay on top for a longer time. At last, you will see a symbol given below around the horse.

That means the horse loves you now.

And, you tamed a horse. But riding is impossible still. You need to put a saddle on the horse at first for that.

How to Put a Saddle on the Horse

A saddle lets you control the horse. So, you have to choose it from the hot bar. Again, the controls are different on each platform.

How to Ride the Horse?

The riding process is no brainer. You can do it on the PC by holding the right button of your mouse. Similarly, L2 and LT buttons are used in Play Station and Xbox respectively.

The movement can be controlled using the same button you use for controlling the man himself.

Wrapping Up

I hope you now know how to tame a horse in Minecraft. Don’t you know the same process can be used to tame other animals as well? Along with that, you can also make banners in Minecraft.

As I told you, in the beginning, patience is all you should need. Why because the horse does not let you mount on it initially. You must do it, again and again, to be succeeded.
