Specifically I hate hotel WiFi, apart from those odd few times it actually works.
Take last night, staying in a very expensive ($750 per night) central London hotel - it's OK, I wasn't paying the bill :)
I had been out delivering a keynote speech to a collection of the great and good in the corporate IT security business in the UK, returning to my room at midnight.
Of course, being a good geek, the first thing I do is fire up the lappy. My aim, in fact, was to check everything was OK at DaniWeb, maybe post a blog, do a bit of forum housekeeping, yada yada yada.
Apart from the fact that the in-room wifi wasn't working. And not was anyone who could fix it at that time of night. I wasted an hour trying to get it working from my end, running down my battery in the process.
So while one of the best known hotels in London could not provide me with WiFi, the train on the way home could. What's more, in my first class carriage (you really can tell I wasn't paying can't you) that access was totally free as well.
Shame my battery ran out after just 30 mins though. Another reason I hate WiFi.
I'm hopeful that my new 3.5G equipped MDA Vario II smartphone (a t-mobile version of the TyTN) will, finally, provide me with relaible web connectivity wherever I need it.
So, do you hate hotel WiFi as well, or is it just me?
