Thinix WiFi Hotspot featured in Wired article:  Create Your Own Hotspot Using the Room’s Ethernet Connection.

By Roberto Baldwin October 5th, 2013

"From the creepiest $20 per night skid-row flophouse to the presidential suite at Hong Kong’s InterContinental, Wi-Fi is now as standard as a toilet in the hotels and motels around the world. If only that connection to the internet worked as well as your trusty porcelain throne. 

Instead of dealing with spotty connections and speeds that resemble early ’90s dialup, use the hotel’s ethernet connection. Regardless of which room you spring for, there’s a good chance yours will have ethernet. With this wired connection you can create your own wireless network that actually gets you online.

Windows: Download and install the $13 Thinix WiFi Hotspot app. Launch it and click on the Configure tab. Set the name of your wireless hotspot in the SSID field. Add a password in the Wireless Key field and hit save. Hit the large Start Hotspot button at the top of the app’s window and get ready to share your internet connection."
