WiFi in HK

2003-06-19 03:03:47.772181+00 by Dan Lyke 3 comments

In the "just try it" department: I'm looking for Hong Kong[Wiki] net access. The great resource at WiFinder gives me a list of likely candidates, and there, in the midst of everything, I see that the hotel I'm staying at, the Stanford Hillview, claims that:

All rooms are equipped with wireless broadband internet access

Duh. Guess next time I should just flip up the little "on" button rather than assuming there's nothing local. Maybe I can catch up on email tonight.

(and have I mentioned how much I loathe the browsing experience in IE[Wiki] yet?)

Well, all the Western hotels I stayed at in China have a 'business office' with internet connected computers.

Yep, my problem is that I live and die by my laptop, and have everything scripted, so I really need an unproxied connection for it to make net access worthwhile. Got 3 hours now, uploading the CD of customer data we burned today just in case it doesn't make it through their network to the states, and doing some business email that I'd rather not have go through certain networks.

Update: If I could pay for it, the wireless at Starbucks[Wiki] would work fine. This wireless sucks.
