How good is WIFI in your Hotel

I make webpages, then I publish them to the internet. Let me explain in another analogous way. Pretend you opened a Microsoft Word program to write a letter, than you clicked on file, save as, and named the file, than clicked on OK. The letter you wrote would be saved to the computer. I do the same, except I save it on a computer that is on a server in Wales in the UK or Great Britain.
When I am sending the information from my computer to the computer in Wales, there are many ways this connection can break or have problems. Normally 99 percent of the problems are on my end of the lake. In the end, what I want is a rock solid connection, no stalls, no slowing of the signal, then at the very end of the trail, I want a fast connect. I first want solid steady rock solid signal, I want the tortoise. I do not need the rabbit, I want extreme consistency.
ONE little stall and the FTP (File Transfer Protocol) will hiccup, cut, make it so one of the files does not send.
ONE little hiccup during a download or upload of emails will cause them to break.
1. All the emails will not be downloaded and then removed from my online email box.
2. When I send the emails they will not send.
(Warning - YOU think you sent the email, it was not received, you could be blaming
your employee for what was your fault.)
IF I am blogging and a photos has not published correctly, a broken picture or a half picture could show. Whatever the case, people do not care, they just want the photo to show and be happy.

This says... LOW, it should say if I am to be very happy. EXCELLENT.
I am in a Days Inn, a very clean, nice, wonderful Hotel, however I still want the EXCELLENT signal, I do not want low. This has been cause me numerous problems, yesterday I blogged to the internet by email, I did not check to see if the email when through. I got to the class to start talking and the page was not showing. I had not sent an email. I went to computer and looked. I was sending to three emails at one time, I think 2 was sent, then the last broke. The wrong one to break.
Bottom line, I have learned a lesson on WIFI in a Hotel, I need to check for the words EXCELLENT, maybe I need to do the same as I would in any other hotel. Assume I need to check signal, strength, does this really work. I have to decide today. Do I ask to move to a better location in the Hotel here in the Days Inn in the city of State College close to the University of Penn State.
I am paying for a signal as part of my package, I want a rock solid connection. I know there is a router or box that is sending this signal. Somewhere I normally could get closer to the signal. This is why I rented a room in the Don Quijote Hotel in Antigua, the router was in my room. I had the words Excellent 24 hours per day. It was a screamer.

Many signals available in the room, some open and some closed. Hard to say if I am actually on the Hotel signal, except for an obnoxious reason I keep getting the next graphics. They end with an advertisement, I do not like to pay for a pop up, take my screen advertisement.
I had trouble with the stronger, one opened that I-Hotel, sent this email. IT did not send.  I am suspecting their firewall ate it.. I am not sure, the bottom line is my foxmail email client says it is sent, I should be getting three emails in my Yahoo box. I should be hear little whooshing noises. Aagh, I cannot guarantee the emails sent. This is an extremely bad problem.

I have to click on this annoying thing, when the signal breaks which it has done a lot, because it does not say EXCELLENT it says low. Then they make me look at some advertisement page.

The signal keeps breaking, I am having trouble getting these graphics to show in my email client.

This is the little speed thingy. Someone wrote or posted when I was in Antigua wanting to know the speed. I normally do not pay attention to speed. I am wanting only a good solid, uninterrupted signal with no stalls. I tell by the feel if the connection is good or bad, I do not need to read these screens, I can see the speed by looking at how fast emails send, or how fast my Cute FTP program is working.
I think, not positive always I understand how this work, but I believe my signal if you looked this link was 10 time faster in the room in Guatemala.
IF I owned a Hotel, I would put wire ethernet in every room, this WIFI so fars is a nice toy, however many times just a toy.
