Just looking for a bit of information on what you have done before and hope to gain here.
as this wifi bandwidth sucking plan of yours will affect the wifi of everyone else in marina, ie, no one else will be able to use it while you are sucking up bandwidth,
and, as it is safer in the marinas
here than in usa, and as you will not be able to respond to any thing shown, not shown or otherwise, please refrain from hogging ALL bandwidth in mexico.
i suggest you use a nice 3g plan to transmit your whimsical plan. avoid the marina wifi, as the bandwidth is so low that folks will be upset with the sudden loss of connections. the goal here us to make friends not alienate them.
ps.... what marina is it you plan on stealing all wifi from, so i can avoid that place, as most of us use wifi for mere communication with friends and family
sites, arrangements for travel, and other insignificant uses.
perhaps there is an alternative to the wifi system crippling activity you choose to entertain...
bribe a neighbor to watch n send pictures, some other way than bandwidth abuse of wimpy marina systems.
havent you read enough complaints about mexiwifi yet????
why not get a satfone service
for this, as mexican wifi hasnt the ablity to support simple daily use, much less support a constant drain situation.
i realize that, as a usa resident, you have no understanding of wifi FAIL, you would consider entertaining this plan. HOWEVER, not everywhere is granted unlimited service
. mexico grants 3 gb monthly.
you will find your alloted 3 gb banda ancha service for 399 pesos will not make the month required before renewal.
i believe, had you ever attempted to use mexiwifi, you would not be trying to figger how to usurp every gb granted to the marina for their system to use for everyone. this is a huge problem here.
and, what do you figger on doing about the need to reset your gb usurping system when a reset is required.....which will be frequently.
just a few thoughts from the reality of mexican wifi..
might consider a usa cell plan. you will be returning every 6 months or become illegal in mexico, so a usa cell plan will be better than use of our inferior mexican wifi.
doesnt at ant t have 6 month allowance for their mexico plan?? is better connectivity, why not use that service for your monitoring??. you MUST return every 6 months for visa anyway.....
