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).
