This invention autonomically uses information broadcast by 802.11 Wireless LAN Access Points to determine a change in the local time. An algorithm would determine the likely timezone based on the time difference between the computer's set time and the time set on the access point. The user would be presented with a user interface to confirm the change and have the setting updated on their computer.
