     I have more stringent firewall rules in my roaming configuration,  
I don't know
what else can be done with my available income.   I avoid using totally open
public WiFi as seen on Market Street,
     I am using Mageia 5.
     If I had the income I would bring along a local router which would 
permit connecting
to the local WiFi and provide a better firewall.

     Not the faintest idea.

     Go for tight rules on your roaming configuration is all I can say.  
Mageia has its own

     Hope it helps.  PCLinux 2016 in a 32 bit configuration  will
provide the same facility.  Mageia 5 is already way behind 2016.03.
Magiea 6 dev1 is still getting nightly updates.
