Boingo crisis

    So the last couple times I opened my laptop in an airport, it went to the dreaded Blue Screen. I had the system on Standby, woke it up....blue. The only way I can bring it back to life is to do a system restore.

    This has happened in two different airports, and both were Boingo hot spots.

    Anyone else have this problem, and is there a solution??

    Actually, I was worried it sounded like a Viagra ad.

    Doesn't happen at O'hare. Worse: It happens at LaGuardia. Happened in Salt Lake City. And Dulles. I can avoid SLC and Dulles, but can't skip LaGuardia.

    I'm convinved there's a Boingo virus or software glitch.

    I've had issues at LaGuardia and nowhere else.
    I finally got it worked out one night at LaGuardia - can't remember what I did, though - just as they were calling my flight.

    I had never even heard of Boingo until I flew thru O'Hare a couple of months ago. Didn't realize it was that mainstream.
