    I have a question about wifi included in the resort fees for 1 device. Does that mean, one device at the time, i.o.w. disconnect that device and log on with another one is ok?

    It was two devices per room at Paris a few weeks ago. That was free with my diamond card but they said it was the same as the resort fee. They nearly all have free wifi in the casinos now.

    For the hotels that do it b device, it's X devices within their 24 hour time limit. The time limit typically resets overnight though.

    Here is a way to get around the multiple devices - and if you are just a little bit on the geek side. We use this when traveling to get around the device thing, and to add another layer of security vs those open wifi signals.

    Gives you your own router, and some USB battery backup for phones.

    Thanks all for your replies!

    But I still don't get it lol. Let me explain my question better.

    At Harrah's I could log on to wifi with both my phone and laptop, included in the resort fees.

    At Four Queens there are no resort fees, thus no "free" wifi. There I can buy a 24h wifi connection for 1 device. After that 24h (or at the same time if I pay double), I can buy a 24h connection with another device.

    But at Flamingo, where I'm moving tomorrow, it says in the resort fees is included free wifi for just 1 device. For additional devices you need to pay.

    So, not having a router at hand to bypass that, can I at Flamingo log on with my laptop and do my thing, then log off and log on with my phone to check WhatsApp for example? Or once I chose one device, I cannot connect any other devices without paying the extra fee?

    I.o.w. 1 device = just 1 device or meaning 1 device at a time?

    At venetian, I have 2 devices logged on under the resort fees. Could be more for all I know but I am using WiFi on 2 devices.

    I've actually used free WiFi at most Harrahs properties including Caesars and Harrahs just yesterday. I couldn't use WiFi at cosmo this morning. If I could sign on at Caesars and Harrahs without being a guest, I don't think you'll have any issues. Mind you this was in the casino and not in a room but I think you can at least know you'll have WiFi downstairs if need be.

    Confident it is one device at a time.Does not matter what type device because if it did they would charge somehow and say so..say Laptop vs cell phone..
    And I guess they will know you are using two devices as you would have to log in twice in the same session,(name,room#,type plan)

    Hi Lady! I don't know the cost in Europe to do this, but one option might be to set up a mobile hotspot on your phone, then piggyback your laptop onto the hotspot. With Tmobile, for 10 bucks a month, I can add a mobile hotspot ability, for up to 5 devices. Might be a workaround for only one device...

    as far as i know if you use the wifi you payd for ( i did this once in the past as well as i was too lazy to go downstairs for the wifi) you can use it 1 at a time.....(as you have to give your name and roomnumber to log in, so indeed log out of laptop or phone and than you can log into other device->that was about a a year ago though.....but i think it didnt change at that time i payd 15$ for 1 day.....when having troubles you could call their tollfree hotline..as i did as the wifi sucked at that time...but they fixed it) there is indeed also option of using your mobile as hotspot but at this moment as you dont have a subscription for that that will be costly and wouldnt recommended that at this time

    Does the first device connecting to/through the router have to enter the login, and then subsequent devices connecting do not?

    (this reply is in reference to a mobile router)
    It works similar to the router you have at home (or what some folks have anyways). You log into the router and then login in to the wifi or wired internet from there. All other devices now see the router and log into the router which is already sending out an internet signal. They do not log into the hotel directly.
