    Random question that popped in my head this morning that I don't know the answer to.

    So, you check in to Monte Carlo. The desk agent thanks you in advance for all the money you're going to spend, gamble, etc. and mentions the resort fee, and says, here's the WiFi password.

    The question is, will the WiFi work only at the Monte Carlo, or is the WiFi password the same for all MGM properties, and the WiFi will kick in at Aria, Mirage, etc?

    I stayed at Delano a few days ago and I didn't need a password to connect, just had to hit agree. While in Mandalay Bay and Aria, same thing, find the Wi-Fi network, connect and agree to their terms. You won't have a seamless experience where if you connect in one hotel you automatically connect at another MLife hotel. The speed in the public areas isn't great, I believe Aria was 1 MB down vs. 5 to 10 MB in the room.

    Right. There are two wifi connections. The public one and the on you have to login with your room number and last name (aria and mirage anyways). Last week I couldn't find out why my connection was so crappy at The Mirage and realized I was connected to the public one.

    From what I remember reading, and this is a few years ago, once you are connected to the wifi tier for hotel guests you have the same speeds across all MGM Resort properties. But my memory may be a bit foggy.

    Most places have the free unsecured WIFI for anyone and then the WIFI for guests. That's free too but you need to log in. Most places also have paid WIFI that give you faster speeds if you choose to pay for it. I always go with the free. It's not great but it's good enough.

    We opted out of the resort fees at Treasure Island and I could not find any free wifi on that property at all.

    Most times when I need it you will be able to find some kind of free wifi. I just enter a fake email address.

    Monte Carlo only had public wifi available in specific areas. Either saw signs to this effect or was alerted online somewhere. Wasn't staying there so didn't take note of specifics

    Bally's checkin clerk took note to inform me that if I used their wifi on casino floor I would be charged despite bring a guest. WTH kind of policy is THAT?

    I did not notice where OP is from, but if the U.S. - why not use cellular. Other than downloading large files, sending lots of pics or streaming movies, most stuff takes very little data.
    And, it is more secure than a possibly rogue wifi signal.
