When you use your mobile device frequently at different Wi-Fi hotspots, automatic Wi-Fi roaming may be useful. This is what IGEL Café Wireless does. The IGEL Café Wireless feature can be used, for instance, with IGEL UDC3. After you have configured your wireless networks, your mobile device is ready to roam.
For optimizing the network switchover, please see Configuring Wi-Fi Network Roaming.
If the network's SSID is hidden, see Connecting to a Wi-Fi Network with Hidden SSID.
