Due to travel requirements I often find myself in hotels, coffee shops, and book stores. I can't seem to get Airvideo to work in these multivariable environments. Is there anyway to get it to work in any wireless situation?

It's quite likely that hotel networks block communication between wireless clients for security reasons.

I agree. I was just hoping there was a way around the security problem. What about places like Starbucks, Barnes & Noble, or Border's?

Probably the same.

A VPN connection solves it for me.

Thank you for the more than laconic response. So what is a VPN connection and how do I get one?

Thanks again.

If you are new to VPN it is not so easy. You can find VPN servers for XP, OSX, and Linux.
So far I have always been able to connect to my home server via VPN.
