wendy: is there a password for the hotel internet?
The staff gives me a handwritten code then adds: we’re not sure it’s working, let me know if you can get the internet
wendy: I can connect to your wireless but your wireless hub is either not connected to the internet or your ISP isn’t giving out IP addresses because the error message I get is about the DNS server not providing IP addresses
wendy: um, your internal wireless system is working ok, but the line coming in is having trouble. Maybe just turning your internet hub on and off will solve it, or you’ll have to phone your internet provider…
staff: we don’t know where the box is, we’re having building works and we’ve lost it
wendy: Oh!!!!! Probably worth looking for the box then….
3 days in the hotel and my only internet access was on my cell phone.
