Because you are staying on points, I would say it should be free, but .....

The other point about bringing your iPhone and blackberry iPad ( is that the blackberry playbook ) will cause you problems because you need wireless access to use these. Ther is only wired access at DVC resorts at the moment, so you will need to bring a wireless router which is already setup to plug in to the wired network which will let you access the Internet.

I probably wouldn't bring the one from home, but would by another one such at the apple airport express. You would need to set this up at home as it needs to be accessed the first time by a wired source (pc or laptop) to sort out the software and with your iPhone/blackberry, you don't have wired access.

Hope this helps, but if not, shout away

Thanks Dave I will look into the router and yes it is a blackberry Playbook. So from what you said I wont be able to access the internet from the playbook but if I buy a router from apple I can use my iphone.

Paul thanks for the info.We arrive on the 8th Nov and are doing our DVC tour on the 10th so I presume we will be able to say we are members once handed over the dosh Yes we will be staying on points so maybe we may still have to pay.I know I managed to pick up a free connection in epcot last year and there was a computer in the RPR concierge lounge. Had to ask for advice off DIS as broke my tooth

Hi Crabbie, if the blackberry playbook has a network port ( a cat5 socket) you will plug the Ethernet cable in an access the Internet.

If the playbook has only wireless access to the Internet, you will need to access it via the wireless router that you will need to bring

I don't know if the playbook has a network port or not. It is slightly bigger than the socket you would plug a telephone into at home if that's any help

I would guess that it will be wireless only but don't know.

Once you set up your router, you can use it for both your playbook and iPhone plus any other wireless laptop etc the same time

David

No, if you can use the regular RJ45 cable, there is one in a bag in the closet. If not, let housekeeping know, otherwise you might get charged $10 if they notice it's missing after your stay.

Sometimes it's also already connected to the router / modem in your room.

If you bring your own Wireless-Router, take the cable that is included with that device, some need switched cabling. Try the cable from the room first, if you don't get any signal on the wireless router, try your own cable.
