http://www.schlotzskys.com/wireless.html says "We have chosen not to implement any encryption on our network for reasons of simplicity and performance.
The SSID is "cool cloud" (without the quotes)
. Most wireless networking software will auto-detect the SSID, but if you have software that does not detect the SSID automatically, you will need this information. "

WAGZone - downtown area - from Thomas St. to Hull St. and from Broad to Dougherty
(this is a wireless cloud over much of downtown - pretty cool http://www.cio.com/archive/031503/campus.html says "
With nine Wi-Fi transmission boxes spread around downtown, the WAGZone welcomes laptops and PDAs fitted with wireless networking cards. Users get access to WAGZone content, and if they are University of Georgia (UGA) students or faculty, they also have access to the Internet." "What the WAGZone emphatically is not, is a no-charge wireless Internet connection. Yes, if you are part of the UGA community, the WAGZone gives you a way to the Net when you are downtown and mobile. But the image of surfing the Net from deep in the café with cappuccino in hand doesn't necessarily hold—the WAGZone is designed to work outdoors. But Shamp is adamant: The WAGZone will not be competition to Internet service providers. "If we undercut the ISPs, then the Internet would dry up and go away," he says. ")  but, OTHER SOURCES INDICATE THAT THIS CLOUD IS FREE...  The above info. may be obsolete.
