New Orleans’ free wifi rollout

Posted by schroeder915 on December 21, 2006


EarthLink has just announced the official rollout of the New Orleans free wifi network. EarthLink wireless routers have been installed around town now for a couple of months.

To connect, look for the “Featherwifi” connection in your computer’s list of wireless providers. After a short login screen, you can use EarthLink’s free wireless service.

So far, I’ve only been able to connect from my front porch (not inside the house), but a technical support specialist told me that if I upgrade to the fee service, EarthLink would provide a more robust router, or adapter (I’m don’t remember which they said they were offering).

Sorry, the comment form is closed at this time.
