Re: [midatlanticretro] Wifi at Infoage
Very interesting. I had not heard of this 'service' but, naturally, others have. See http://stefans.datenbruch.de/lafonera/ for more information on how this router works and how to "open it up". The problem with getting Wi-Fi working at InfoAge is not the fact there there is no router - I'll donate a router. The problem is that the router needs a DSL or cable connection to the Internet. There is no DSL or cable at InfoAge, at least not in the hotel. There is not even a phone. That's why we did the Wi-Fi connection across the street for VCF. That link worked much better than I had expected but it is not something we can do all the time. There has been talk of Verizon donating DSL service to InfoAge or MARCH. Someday we'll get all this working.
- Not entirely correct, there is a phone in the gift shop / office in the hotel.
Just got home. Joe and I worked our butts off today. Details to follow...
