Wifi Issue in Romm 6011

I was asked to inform you of the problem I reported to the Hilton Hotel staff concerning the internet access in room 6011.  As I explained to the Hotel Staff, I do not see this as an IETF issue with the network.  It is only a Hotel infrastructure problem.

The problem:
There is only a very weak signal in the room.  Most of the room is actually dead (e.g., in the Bedroom for example there is no signal).  In the suite area by the desk, I find only a marginally adequate signal and even there it is weak and drops out frequently.

Why did I report it:
I do not expect the hotel can fix this on short notice but I felt they should be aware of it as they need to improve the radio signal (someday) in the room.

Of course, if there is a way to get a wireless access point instead in or near my room that would be great but I am not expecting IETF to solve this.  I do want the hotel to know at least of the problem.

Thanks Tom,

It helps us to be able to track these types of dead spots as well. If you wouldn't mind letting us know which room you are in we can store that for our notes and pass it on to our hotel contacts.

Fyi, there is an Ethernet connection that is also free. While you'll be tied down to the distance of your cable, it does at least provide much more throughput than the wireless is capable of.
