As I'm trying to host a few Twisted people over at Randwick Lodge today, I decided to make sure I had the appropriate equipment available. That is to say, wireless internet.
Of course, this is harder than it seems. The hotel resells some kind of NetComm captive portal product, which they've given us just the one account for (it costs $50/wk). So only elspeth's iBook has been logged on, and the rest of us have to suffer.
Which is why it was important for me to bring our wireless router and some cables. The network looks kinda like this at the moment
NetComm Gateway <-wifi-> iBook <-ethernet-> NetGear Wifi Router <-wifi-> 3 more laptops.
Side effect is, if you're in the area of Randwick Lodge, we have an open access point called 'NETGEAR'. :)
