Anyone else notice that the wifi at resorts is poor?
 
We're at Kidani Village right now, and my internet keeps dropping out. I called for assistance and she just told me to use Internet Explorer. :confused3

Is it always this bad?

It's always that bad, I totally agree with you. Ever since they switched over to free wifi, it has been horrible. I didn't feel it was right to be charged to use the Internet before but I would be willing to now if it was better. I would end up using my IPad and use 3G because it was better when I was able to, but for business with laptop and such I tried best to deal with it. If you have something important you can always visit a business center, like at the Yacht Club, and rent computer for sometime. You do have to pay but if its a necessity to have solid good connection it is worth it.

It is so bad I rather pay $10 a night with the Ethernet than have free wifi

Had a horrible experience at BCV last week. Connection would keep freezing up after a few minutes. Found that if I turned the computer's wifi off and back on that it would resume but then it stalled again a few minutes later. Very frustrating.

It appears that Disney knows there is a problem. I got a survey when I got home and there were several questions on it related to the quality of wifi service.

I have gotten that survey a lot since they changed to WiFi and I guess they don't care how much it stinks it about getting complaints.

Wifi uses an antenna. Maybe it works better in some wings of the resort in which case these boards might serve as a good place where experiences are collected and the "best wing for wifi" at each resort can be publicized.

It was horrible for me last week at BLT.

Poor network design for the number of users, and definitely not enough bandwidth.

Terrible at AoA last this past August. :headache:

I'm at Kidani Village suffering with you. Even my 10-year-old was complaining when trying to use her MacBook.

I'm at riverside right now and am having a good experience with the wi-fi. I am in the mansion section.

Of course it's going to to be slow. You have to think of ow many people are trying to get online. If you need to get online, do so while people are in bed or at the parks.

It was fine for me last week at the Wilderness Lodge. I didn't use it a lot, but when I did it worked well.
