Greetings and Salutations to All my Kith and Kin and All the Ships in Outer Space:

This afternoon, I went downstairs to the PX to get my free candy bar, and then sat down in the Canteen to see if I could access the Internet with my Toshiba Satellite notebook computer.

Sure enough, after a little experimenting, the Ol' Soldiers' Home's new WiFi signal gave me unlimited access to the Internet.

Unfortunately, I cannot get that WiFi signal in my room.

My computer does detect several other WiFi signals in my room, but they're all encrypted, so I'm unable to use any of them.

So, I reckon I'll have to keep paying lots of money to Comcast, for the convenience of having a high speed connection to the Internet in my room.

But, our new WiFi hotspots might be useful to any visitors we might have.

It's too bad the administration here at the Soldiers' Home won't direct the WiFi signals into our rooms, for that would sure save us residents a lot of money.

Thank you.

Saigon!! I can understand your predicament. The AFRH doesn't seem to support the WiFi System. Google
"WiFi Range" and you will see that WiFi have a range of 600 feet to 6 to 12 miles. The AFRH Resident Fund surely can afford to buy a AID2401 WiFi Device with a 2000 feet range. Better yet, a WiFi Device is available on the market to cover the entire campus. They are commonly used on Golf Courses all over the world. coalchute
