Anyone have any experience with hooking up to the internet with a laptop on the strip? I need to know where to go for free/cheap connection.

We just stayed at the Venetian - was the usual $10/day... that on top of $400/night for the room.

I could afford to stay there for about an hour. CRIPES! $400/day? I hope you had your own person there to feed you, bath you, etc. smiling smiley

Having never done wireless, I did not know that $10/day was standard. Most places around here advertise that it's free. I guess Vegas is different.

Yeah - the last time I stayed in Vegas (just at the Station, in a $200 per night room that was picked up as a business expense by someone else) it was shown to be $10 per day, but I never saw the charges for that come up on the tab. This next time we're staying at the Stratosphere and it's advertised at $10 per day also. We scored on the room for $65 a night though! Quite a deal.
Not much for free in Vegas.

There's a small coffee shop, don't remember the name right now, on Maryland Parkway, just across from the UNLV campus with free wifi.

When I used to have to go to LV for business, I'd camp out there between appointments.

The Las Vegas Convention Center (one LONG block east of the strip) often has free WiFi for convention attendees. Anyone can walk into the lobby. ID / credentials would be needed to enter whatever convention is underway. A WiFi detectector would probably find other hot spots. Starbucks and other companies often provide free WiFi access for their patrons.

Make sure you keep MacStumbler on your laptop.
