Anyone tried their Wii from a hotel?

#1betaplayPosted 4/14/2013 6:10:32 PM
I'm on travel a bit next week and I'll be driving so it's not a big deal to pack it up. Has anyone tried hotel wifi with the Wii? I will be in a Tennessee Marriott, in case that matters.

I feel like someone tried this long ago but I can't remember who. Worth it?

Yes, but I was unable to connect to their horrible internet and the motion sensor was having trouble.

My wife had a week long business trip in St. Louis earlier this year and she FORCED me to tag along. I figured it wouldnt be all bad if i took the Wii for some GE action though. I was sadly mistaken. My wii refused to pass a connection test with the piss poor hotel WIFI, so Tito turned me onto using Connectify, a program which turns your laptop into a hotspot. I was able to play this way, but the lag made it nearly unplayable.

Have a good trip bro!

Depends on a number of things. Hotel wireless setup, room location, number of people staying that night, etc...

I've had playable experiences in some hotels, while not even being able to connect in others. Usually the A/V settings cannot be altered unless you enter 'maintenance mode' on the TV which can be dicey. Couple times it was just too damn dark to play and brightness could not be adjusted.

If you have a LAN adapter you can usually get an ether net cable from the front desk.

Thanks everyone. I probably wont bring it but a part of me is curious what other connections feel like.

@Snuggs - near Knoxville. Thats cool that you're keeping up with Limes, hope he's doing well.

@ yC, yeah ggs. I was very pleasantly surprised to see you. I liked the retro IGN too.

Tito had to buy software/hardware... Or something. After that, smooth sailing.
