I've used a range of options over the years depending on circumstances from VPN, to my access point hardwired to their network to MiFi. While it's likely all/most readers here can do those things and more, that's not the point.
The point is most of the general public doesn't understand. Yes we can, and prolly do laugh and snicker at the luddites, unwashed and ignorant. In truth what hurts them, hurts us. Calling them "stupid" doesn't help, most of them are ignorant not stupid anyway. Is it really that unreasonable to expect that a hotel that provides a service that we are in fact paying for, does so with due dillegence?
