WIFI In Hotel Room in Bangkok

Ridiculous amounts of work to use WIFI, but I seem to have WIFI signal in my room here off of Khao San Road in Bangkok, Thailand. Moved into one, and moved down to a room that functioned when it became available.

The only way to get WIFI to work in the room with off the shelf WIFI routers is to have a room within 10 feet of the router, or less...

Concrete walls stops the signal!

They advertise WIFI in the room, and I never believe until I check the room, the signal and somehow get room very close if not line of site of the WIFI router.

I am in the hotel, behind the Wat, on the little street leading towards the river. The hotel is on the right and has a 24 hour Internet cafe in front.

Oh well, it is the Erawan Hotel, I do not like to give my address normally, but this is a ridiculously hard thing to find. The room is 850 Baht and not cheap, the price is shared so I guess it is 425, still not cheap. A cheap room on Khao San is less than 220 Baht.

WIFI Suck
Give me an Ethernet wire in my room any day.

I have found very few room on the planet where I have Internet access in my room in a room that cost less than 25 dollars, less than 10 is almost never. I call this the old bait and switch.

The good part is with 24 hour Internet cafe in front, I have a backup, there are some issue of having a large website, that needs a great connection, at least every few months.

I go to Africa soon, and I expect the worst.

You maybe supprised to learn that in the part of the world where i live Saddam will be remembered amongst the greatest socialists, Lenin, Marx and Stalin. Yes, and also Hitler, but never polpot because he was crazy! Saddam was a great socialist and will be remembered for that, and also of course for standing up to the greatest dominating force of the evil west, the USA.

Saddam did probably kill alot of innocents but nothing like the number it is taking to control the anger of this unlawfully occupied nation.

the senseless bloodshed continues without Saddam

americans remain layal to their president nomatter how rediculous his justifactions and means to achieve them. At least here in the East we know who is the bad man.

I never know what to do, this person although maybe I disagree put a legitimate post. However, he or she put in the wrong area, this is about WIFI.

It is in the wrong category and I cannot respond.
