Hotel p2p - cedar point

Postby Sh00t3r » Sun Jul 21, 2002 9:50 am

I went down to Cedar Point Amusement park in ohio about 3 weeks ago with a butt load of people. So the hotel i was stayin at was pimpin high speed internet. The hotel my tech buddy was stayin at did not. BUT he was within LOS of our hotel on the "bayside view" of the hotel ($45.00 per night more!!!). Solution, social engineering trick that gives you a 50/50 chance of getting the bayside view with no increase in price and a p2p wireless connection via 2 pringles cans.

Check in and make sure you select a nonsmoking room. Once you get into your room say you made a mistake and would like a smoking room. Chances are that the smoking section is on the top floor. When they move you from non smoking to smoking they usually just place you in a room within the smoking section, without checking for the "bayside view" or what not. It's worked for me multiple times! I'm not a smoker and I hate the smell but it's well worth it.

Anyways, I used my laptop as a bridge between the hotel's internet and my p2p to my tech buddy about 1/4 mile away. We were both using pringles. It worked flawlessly. Established a great link of 11Mbps and now that he had internet access the world could continue to revolve. Thank you pringles can!
