Create your own Wi-Fi hotspot in your hotel room

Nowadays having Wi-Fi in your hotel room isn’t as much of a novelty as it used to be. The only problem is that, wherever you are or however much you’re paying, the connection is as spotty as a Dalmation and a slow as…well, a very slow snail.

There is a way around stupidly slow Wi-Fi. Most hotel rooms still sport an Ethernet connection, even if Wi-Fi is the way to go these days. There are wireless access points that can be plugged into the Ethernet port to create your own wireless network, such as the Asus WL-330NUL N150. This concentrates the Wi-Fi in your room without accessing the rest of the hotel’s, and therefore gives you the chance to enjoy a speedy, stable internet connection. You can also save buying this if you don’t travel too often, by turning your computer into a hotspot of its own. If you have a Mac, you can set this up through System Preferences – as far as Windows goes, you can buy the $13 Thinix WiFi Hotspot App to faciliate it.

Whichever way you go, do test the difference between your internet speed before you try any of these methods. Run TestInternetSpeed to see just how much you’ve improved the connection your hotel’s given you.
