Wi-Fi in the D

Last week while in the Brush Park area, it dawned on me that I had forgotten to send a rather important e-mail to someone. Being that I don’t have a Blackberry or e-mail on my phone and that I was too short on time to drive all the way back across town to send the e-mail from my place, I dug my laptop out of the trunk and crossed my fingers that I would pick up a signal.

Sure enough, I did.

Although Campus Martius Park is wireless, I thought it might be a good idea to search around online for a site that lists all of the WiFi spots near me, just in case I am not in that area of the city. Low and behold, I found what I was looking for at JWire.

If you are ever working downtown or in the Detroit area, you may want to consider checking the site out. Once there, you can search for WiFi spots based on location or proximity to a given area, filter for 802.11b or 802.11g, or find free spots, as well as those that charge a fee.

Here is the list I came up with when searching for free WiFi spots, both 802.11 b and g, within a five-mile radius of the downtown zipcode 48226. I have printed out a copy and now it’s in the pocket of my computer bag.

    This is less useful that the link you gave, but still handy, maybe.
