FCP-TradingPost Internet Cafe

Postby CampADK » Thu May 26, 2011 1:26 pm

Well we got the connection working again at the Trading Post today. We also moved the router closer to the front so the signal is stronger. Phil has upgraded his service with Verizon so his Internet is much faster as well.

Great connection here on may Macbook over by the ice cream shack outside the Trading Post. Speed comes in at a decent 2.8Mbps. Excellent!

To connect, look for wireless ID FCP-TradingPost. Password is fishcreekpond

Remember the passwords is all lowercase, one word (fishcreekpond). As in the past Phil's internet at the Trading Post is free.

He'll have an area setup for the internet besides the ice cream shack fairly soon which will include a canopy, new tables, along with a pay phone I believe.

I tested the connection from our boat out on the water across from the Trading Post. The signal is not accessible from water unfortunately.

Cheers

Thanks. Although it's good for me to spend most of the camping week offline, it's nice to sneak out once or twice to send out emails of what a great week I am having, and check on the weather.

My Tracfone, which I believe hits off AT&T towers works well most areas at Rollins. There are other posts in the forums about cell coverage in the area. I think Verizon has some dead zones there.

Based on my research you should get better coverage in Rollins than in Fish Creek... at least for Verizon. Signal comes from Mt Morris in Tupper Lake. There is a big hill between Fish Creek and Mt Morris which doesn't help us. Rollins has a clearer line of sight path.

Is the store open every day this early in the season? Is the wi-fi still working, with a pass word of fishcreekpond. ?
Any ice deliveries at Rollins?
