High Speed Connectivity
See this article for information about "high speed hotels" that provide in room wireless access: High Speed Hotels
Some rooms have wireless connections, but more typically the "high speed" service is available via a cable box sitting on a desk or bureau in the room. Thus, you are forced to set up shop near that cable box. You have no other option, right? Well, you may soon have the option to set up wherever you want in the room or on the balcony (if there is one) and use a "wi-fi" connection. This informative article Where and How to Connect explains that "Networking companies are now offering an alternative in the form of wireless routers the size of a deck of cards, complete with handy vinyl travel pouches...Once you arrive at your hotel and provide a credit card for high-speed Internet charges, you can set up your own little wireless hotspot right in your own room. Simply plug the network cable from your desk into the travel router and plug in the power."
The articles author favorably reviews two wireless travel routers, viz., the OfficeConnect Wireless 54Mbps 11g Travel Router and the NetGear 54Mbps Cable/DSL Wireless Travel Router.
As an added bonus, the author reviews BoxWaves (a) VersaCharger (which can be used as an AC and 12v DC charger for a PDA), (b) miniSync connector cables to attach the VersaCharger to your particular PDA and (c) Clear Touch Crystal PDA screen protectors.
