internet access at Minicon 48

If you have a room at the hotel, you'll have access to both wired & wireless access in your room. The first time you connect to the "GlobalSuiteWireless" network, a browser window (or equivalent) should pop up asking you for a name the room is under & room number. You'll have the option of using their complimentary internet access or paying $10.95/day for "enhanced" access, though we've not found any details on what the enhancements are. You'll be given a code at that time which is good for access for 24 hours-- you'll want to make note of that code to use it wherever you roam in the hotel.

If you don't have a room at the hotel, you can still make use of wireless internet throughout the hotel. Lobby access is reportedly unrestricted & free. If you connect to the "Meeting" network, you'll need to select a meeting room ("Bloomington" or "Edina" are usually safe bets, doesn't really matter what room you're actually in) and they'll ask for a name (use whatever you want), and then you can give "MINICON" as the passcode and should be able to connect to the network.

Thanks for the detailed instructions.  Made setting up my tablet a piece of cake.
