    Hotel internet access point question.

    The internet access socket in hotel rooms, are they normally rj45 if so is it straight or crossover.

    Stopping in a hotel in Spain and hoping to take the laptop so I don't miss out on Hotukdeals!!!.

    Hotel doesn't have wifi which is a shame. And I don't even know if it has a socket in the room. But I'm getting desperate so will take one just in case.

    Its hotel flamingo oasis Benidorm on the off chance anyone has stayed.

    Yep thats the one, although most modern laptop NICs are able to self detect if using a straight or cross cable and adjust to suit.

    Best thing you can do on a holiday is leave the laptop and anything to do with UK life behind... enjoy a different life for two weeks

    bear in mind any usage will probably be at an extortionate rate

    Most modern routers/switches and client NICs use auto MDX, so makes no difference actually
