Traveling? Bring MikroTik along, just in case…

Sitting in a hotel this week, Boone, North Carolina doing some MikroTik training for Samaritan’s Purse, a world wide non-profit that does relief work and a lot more just about everywhere humans can go. It has been great training with great people but the internet at the local Holiday Inn express is well, terrible. I can’t think of a better description.

Fortunately, I brought a RB951UI-2HnD and fortunately, there was a Lowes’ next door with fast wireless and fortunately, my room was on the Lowe’s side of the building.

So, if you ever stay on the south side of the building in the Boone, NC Holiday Inn, and have a MikroTik RouterBoard with you, paste this in and enjoy!
