Tips on Connecting to WiFi in Hotels

You never know what your WiFi situation is gonna be like, and some hotels, even if they offer unlimited WiFi, you may require a desktop computer or cell phone to access it.

Using your laptop, connect to the hotel’s WiFi and then turn on WiFi sharing in your computer’s network settings. This will essentially turn your laptop into a WiFi hotspot that you can connect your SHIELD to.

So there you have it. Would-be globetrotters will no doubt welcome the addition of the ultra compact NVIDIA SHIELD TV to their list of what to bring when travelling. Of course, if you haven’t already joined the SHIELD family then what’s stopping you?! Run out today and grab an NVIDIA SHIELD TV.
