    Yep... should be able to. NYDC @ Wheel lock was on 2nd level, I was at CoffeeBean first level and I managed to get the signal, but slightly weak

    Oh, finally a MacD that doesn't have wireless broadband...I was under the impression that all Macs will have wireless broadband.

    Macs is still the place to go for free wireless access...it's like scattered all over Singapore. If you are thick-skinned enough you don't even have to buy anything from them.

    Avoid the one at Junction 8 though...a quick scan brings up 4-5 wireless networks and it's pretty 'crowded' in fighting for a stable connection to the Macs WLAN.
