Eddie44 Posted January 10, 2007 Share Posted January 10, 2007 Sunday afternoon I flew to Billings for a court case I had been subpoena'd for. I get there and check into the hotel that your tax dollars were paying for. It was your typical 60's two story motel. It had been renovated and was clean (especially on Gila Bend standards).I look around the room and they had a sign describing how to access their wireless internet (free). Problem is my work laptop doesn't work on wireless networks for security reasons (bank info and all that). I check out the desk/dresser and find what appears to be a wireless router. I unplug the cable and plug it into my laptop. Surprise, I can access the Internet. Well that was fine Sunday night and Monday morning. When I get back to my room on the lunch break the internet cable is hooked back up to the router. I think "what a bitch, the maid unhooked me". I hook it back up to my laptop and go back to court. Upon returning to the room that evening there's a voicemail from the front desk lady saying "I don't understand what you're doing Mr. Catlett but when you unhook the router in your room no one else in your wing of the hotel can access the internet. I think oh poop and hook it back up to the router. I had finally had it last night about 10 pm and I needed a ACE Forum fix. I figure no one else is using it so I hook it back up to my laptop. This afternoon in the airport I was talking to a couple of the other witnesses. We were discussing our visit to the wonderful little town of Billings. One of the ladys who is an attorney here in Phx says "the motel was surprisingly nice. Better than I anticipated, but their wireless internet sucks!" She goes on to say she was trying to get some work done and the internet kept going off. NOPE, I didn't tell her! :D Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
