Effingham Wifi Cub (WISP) Guide

Wonderful day!! And Welcome To The Effingham WiFi Club.

Yes, it is a wonderful day, to stay inside and sit on a wifi hotspot. A wireless Internet service provider (WISP_(WISP)) is an Internet service provider, with a network based, on wireless networking Technology.  (WISP) 

The real secret, is no one is talking about the wifi that is available here, in Effingham Il, I have done a lot of research, on trying to find out where all the best places to go for wifi and who lockon is ? I looked up the IP and used google maps gps locator on the signal,  it show up in the middle of nowhere.

665 mile from here, Wifi Can Be tricky for many reasons, there is software that hides your real IP address, I did a search on myself and it said, I was located in Mattoon, I Know that I am here, in Effingham. The WISP provider must be in Mattoon.

I am sure you read or heard on the internet, be aware, you never know who it is your Communicating with, even using the right software tools, can still be miss leading. Security is very important, it is going to be one of our up coming topics.


I love riding my bike, just another free thing I enjoy. Whenever I am out for a ride, I am always looking for those wonderful towers, like I said, they are all around Effingham Il, I live close to 3 of the wifi towers, the IGA store is a half mile from me, there you can find a big tower.



My Favorite, is located by the train station. It is very close, oh how I love taking the train to Chicago. I can go there and back cheaper then if you tried driving there. I been there and back for $ 60.00 many times. I have family up north, so I visit there often.


Nice photo, perfect for showing the towers. When you look over to the right while driving the Banker Street bridge, you can see the wifi towers and the roof top of the train station.The wifi towers look like they are following each other, to me.

What You Need to Connect to Wi-Fi Hotspots, depends on your distance from wifi towers. You may need a grid antenna, to connect at further distances, which I did a review on a little while back.

I am using connectify.me as a virtual router, to create my Hotspot, it Easily Connects All  Devices it is the best that I have tested so far your in control, “give it a special name” mine is  Effingham_Wifi_Club_3g

I connect everything from laptops,my 2 pcs’, + mobile phones, and my 50 inch wide screen television. They are all Wi-Fi enabled, which makes them easier to use in my home. I have a Wi-Fi hotspot in every room and the nieghbors can see my hotspot as well, that is a powerful router.

Who would know a pc, is better at creating wifi, then a store bought router that you have to place in every room in your home to receive a signal. Days when I am have low signal, I have modified my Virgin Mobile to boost my speeds to 3g, my browsers open quick, I turned wifi into wlan and back to wifi. Insane what can be accomplished with the right software these days .

For those that are not equipped with the needed tools to connect to a hotspot, here are some things that they should use.

These are the best, I tested so far. Being able to connect to a hotspot for me, is a must. The wireless adapter (Signal King), has over 400 reviews, I enjoyed reading over them, they have great tips.

Again, most modern laptops are equipped with Wifi, but for those wanting more, you could
buy a wireless card or even a USB adapter as an add-on. I recommend doing this.
