    We have an old laptop and have just bought a wireless g usb adapter for it. It works fine at home, I just set it up but I had to run and press a button on our modem to link it up.

    Do you think it will work over there? We're staying at HoJo's. We'd like the convenience of emailing from our room. :surfweb:

    Anyone have any ideas.

    Hi jacs,

    I haven't used my laptop at that particular hotel, but I have used it before in Las Vegas. Now there, the internet had to be paid for (wireless or not) and it was about US$10 per day (in 2007). It worked fine, though.
    I would perhaps contact the hotel because there may be a charge regardless. I wouldn't think too many places would have wireless access available for free.
    Good luck!! And enjoy your holiday - only a few days to go now!!

    Hojo has free internet access in their rooms. If you bring a laptop just plug the ethernet cable you will find in your room into the laptop and you are good to go :cool1:

    We stayed at HoJo's too and loved being able to get onto the net with our laptop. I was on there every morning before everyone else woke up and at night when we got in was handy to check emails/dis boards etc. It was a little slow at times however, but still handy :goodvibes have fun!
