When you log in with your user account, you should see a timer window appear briefly telling you how much time is remaining on that account. A member of WiFi SPARK can also tell you how much time is remaining as long as you supply your username.
If your timer window does not appear, you probably have a pop up blocker like a Yahoo or Google toolbar or Microsoft Internet Explorer SP2. However, since SPARK is a secure portal site, and we don’t bombard you with pop ups, it’s safe to set your browser to receive all pop ups from the SPARK site.

If the access speed is slow, you are probably in a poor signal strength area. Try moving closer to the access point.

It will have some method of detecting signal strength which will allow you to move around until you are in a good signal strength area. The more signal bars you have - the better!
