Local connectivity versus 'local plus internet connectivity
Why is it that my computer on provides "local connectivity" at times. What
does "local connectivity" mean?

How can I avoid this problem. I go to a 'hotspot' expecting to have
'internet connectivity' and I cannot get on the net. I have a strong signal
but the connection icon tells me I only have 'local connectivity'. This is
very frustrating and there appears to be no way to get internet connectivity.
