I tried to access the free downtown wifi when I was at the Cal and MSS. My room at the MSS faced north (ugh, the freeway) and at the Cal it was the west tower facing west. I was unable to get any free wifi connections at either place from the direction that my room faced. In the west tower at the Cal I tried to see if I could catch the free signal when I was by the window by the elevators. Again I was unable to catch any free signal. I did go down to the cal parking lot to see if I could catch anything. While unable to get a signal when I was on the west side of the parking lot I did catch the free wifi signal when I was on the east side of the parking lot, facing eastward. I think you have to face the FSE to catch the free wifi signal, not sure why I wasn't able to catch it when I was near the upstairs elevators, maybe the east tower was in the way? Funny because people were looking to see what I was doing in my car. Just information for people who want to catch a free wifi signal while down at the Cal or MSS, while you can catch the signal in the parking lot I'm not sure if you can catch a signal in the hotel facing west. I should have checked out the east tower to see if I found a signal, maybe next time.
