    This is the network at my local Planet Fitness. Is the exclamation point there because it's a public network?

    It can mean you are connected to a network but don't have Internet access. I've seen it in my own network when I was having issues with my provider.

    Well, I am supposed to be exercising rather than checking my email while at Planet Fitness, so I guess it's just as well that there's no internet access. Thanks for the replies.
