    Default FOC Wireless Access

    Hi folks,

    am heading down to Tanjong Pagar later, but will be very early for appointment, does anybody knows if there's any FREE wireless access in that area? Hee.

    TIA!

    I thought just look for the nearest McDonald's?

    But now even Macs cannot be trusted. There were a few occasions where their wireless access is down. Take for example, today at Macs Shaw Plaza. Many other customers complain also no use.

    Problem is the latest 4.2 airport update broke the link for Mac's wireless access so I can't surf @ Macs till it's resolved.

    Anyway I sat some place did some photo editing till my appt started... so oh well, so much for free WI-FI... can't wait till SG becomes totally WI-FI. One account serves it all, every where, anytime.

    I meant to say, since it's 802.11b, it may be slow no matter how fast your server is (due to short wireless radio range).
    In my school. I can be surfing in the canteen at super fast speeds, but in class, the surfing speed is very slow due to increased distance from access point

    Get an iPass account lor... got a lot of roaming partners all over the world so can get WiFi access almost anywhere, anytime (including on long haul flights that have the Boeing connexion system on board).
