Beating Lack of Hotel Wireless = Connectify + iPad
Netflix on the iPad is great for traveling. When coupled with the HDMI connector, it works great for streaming entertainment on the hotel flat screen televisions. Many times though, there is a problem. The iPad only does wireless. It does not get along well with a Cat6 cable. There is internet in the room, via a Cat6 cable. This does little good in getting Netflix from Al Gore's Internet to the flat screen television though. This is where Connectify for Windows comes in. Within five minutes of downloading Connectify for free, my iPad was connected with Netflix streaming to the television watching something very useful like My Cousin Vinny.
