Wirelessly Los Alamos

I've just arrived in Los Alamos after flying in from Orlando and the SPIE meeting. The town, and the labs, are about an hour and a half's drive from Albuquerque, but there isn't a closer airport with scheduled flights. That said, the drive wasn't bad, I put the Ford Explorer I hired on cruise control most of the way, and the Hertz Neverlost I got with the four by four meant I steered clear of the worst of the spaghetti junctions around Santa Fe. So no harm down...

But when I got to the hotel and I thought I'd go online, erm, which wireless network do you think I should use? One of these belongs to the hotel, but I really don't have any idea which one. I asked, and it doesn't look like any of the staff know either...


How many?

Pick one I guess, or as there is also an ethernet jack in the room, dig my Airport Express out of my luggage and run my own so I have a bit more end-to-end security?
