The wi-fi service in this part of town is just awful.
Our internet was so slow we had to get an extender in order to bolster our poor home wi-fi.
With a variety of wireless networks available almost anywhere you go, it is a necessity to have a laptop with a built-in Wi-Fi feature to help you gain access to the internet when you are at a Wi-Fi enabled zone.
For non-console related help, you'll find information on Club Nintendo, Nintendo Wi-Fi Connection, Nintendo Power Magazine, Nintendo branded card games and how to identify officially licensed Nintendo products.
I frequent the coffee shop around the corner for their free wi-fi as well as their excellent coffee.
