I have a new MacBook Pro with Windows 7 installed on a Parallel partition.
I qualify for free Wi-Fi Connect based on the level of my service but despite having downloaded
and installed the Verizon software (on the Windows partition) I cannot connect to local Starbucks listed
as allowing Verizon customers to use their wi-fi networks nor BWI Airport, which is also listed
among Verizon Hotspots. I can always connect to free public wi-fi hotspots on the Macintosh
side but they aren't everywhere yet.
Early this month I was told that Verizon would have Wi-Fi Connection software for the Macintosh OS by the end of the month but as of this morning tech support for wi-fi connection didn't know anything about this.
Does anyone else?
Yes, 10.6.4 actually. But how do Verizon hotspots depend on the Mac OS at all?
So far, they only have a Windows version of their Wi-Fi Connect software
(I'm using Windows 7 under Parallels also, but without any luck: the Windows 7
side doesn't find any networks even though it reportedly looks for them)
