Chapter Three. At Your Destination > Do-It-Yourself Hotel Wi-Fi

Do-It-Yourself Hotel Wi-Fi

Even though many hotels do not yet offer wireless access in their rooms, there's no reason why you can't take matters into your own hands and make your room wireless. Several products are on the market that let you plug a Wi-Fi base station into an Ethernet jack—such as the one in your room. Bringing your own portable wireless base station lets you move freely about your room and do your work from wherever. It's perfect for those who like to multitask in the bathroom.

Typically, a portable wireless base station plugs into a wall outlet for power and has an Ethernet port into which you connect the cable from the hotel's Ethernet jack. It then communicates wirelessly with the Wi-Fi card in your laptop, giving you a magical invisible cable that releases you from the confines of your room's Internet port.
