    It plugs into the wired LAN connection in the hotel room, so you have personal wifi, vs sharing the hotels wifi signal with hundreds of other people.

    Here's the difference between the two at 10:30am on a Saturday. Last night the max speed on hotel wifi was less than 5mbps

    It also works as a wifi extender, so I can use it at my parents house when we park our trailer in the back of their acreage.

    Well imagine if instead of writing that letter to the editor, she just posts on a car forum for car enthusiasts. That's Kritafo.

    nice, this is assuming that the hotel has a LAN connection on each room then? I've stayed at hotels that offer Wifi only now.

    Yeah, obviously need a lan port. 99% of my hotel stays are in business type hotels, so I haven't run into one without a port yet.

    Most of the hotel's I've stayed at still need you to login when using the LAN connection, does the router get around that somehow?
    I just want my car to look good, my bitch to look better, and my wallet to be fat, not flat...

    Yea, just open a browser after you connect to the router, and you'll see the exact same authentication page.

    I've used these for years, but wifi has improved so much at the hotels that I stay at in the last 2 years I haven't used it since.

    I really like the ubiquity hardware vpn model they have for amplifi. Plug in anywhere in the world and itís like being on your home network. Wonder if it can be hacked to work with enterprise unifi...

    Put a new exhaust on the bike. So nice sounding. Came with a remap as well, so now the bike says racing when it starts up which is excellent :P

    I used to have an 84 Mustang SVO and swore I'd get another foxbody. 85/86 GTs are my favourite and I prefer hatches to notches. So I traded my Ranger plus a little cash for this 86 GT hatch 5spd. First year of EFI in the 5.0L

    It pisses water at the moment but that'll get fixed asap.

    The best part is the paintjob:

    Nothing super exciting, but just ordered a pendant light for my new house. George Nelson Saucer. They are quite popular in the MCM design, so it should fit in nicely in the new place!

    Very cool, that takes me back, especially the SVO!
