SF-bound with wifi

Tuesday, January 13, 2009 by Dave Winer.

I just got on the inbound BART from the Berkeley station, and I have wifi through the Cradlepoint but I don't have a net connection because we're underground. Permalink to this paragraph

However, in a few minutes, between Ashby and MacArthur, we will emerge and my router should be able to establish a connection. This probably will happen a lot faster than if I had used the software on my laptop to connect cause it's pretty clunky and slow and sometimes takes two or three times to connect. The Cradlepoint seems to do this much better. Permalink to this paragraph

And you'll know it's working because you're reading this. Permalink to this paragraph
