Purchase is done through your notebook computer with a credit card and over a secure connection.

The speeds listed above are maximums set by the option of your choice. Because there are so many variables that are out of our control, we cannot guaranty that you will receive the selected speed above. See details below.

Notes:
Wireless speed is affected by distance to/from the repeater, the quality and or compatibility of the end user's equipment and how many walls you are trying to make access through.

Our repeaters put out the maximum watts allowed by the FCC. Our antennas are 18" 12db and 48" 16 db gain antennas. This gives them a line of site range of up to a mile. However, the internal antenna on most end user devises is less then 1 inch long and much less than 1 DB. This means that most end user equipment has very limited range. Therefore the location or quality of your equipment may limit your speed and or access. You can greatly improve your speed with a 9DB gain or better external antenna. Another way to improve your speed is to move your modem antenna so it is in the line of site of the repeater antenna nearest your cottage. This means by the window that you can see our antenna from.

Internet access speed and or bandwidth are also limited by overall Internet traffic.
This means that some times the system may become overloaded and slow down below the speed you have purchased. In Felton this is most common around 11:00 PM local time.

Wireless security:
Like all open access wireless, the free access at Fern River Resort is not password protected or encrypted. This means that a hacker may be able to read your signal as it passes over the airwaves from your computer to our access point (AP). Once on our network, the wireless client network traffic becomes safe because it is encrypted as it travels between our AP's and the gateway. It is highly unlikely that a hacker is parked within range of your cottage but we recommend that you do not send, stock, banking, credit card or any other personal information over the Internet.

Secure paid wireless access:
The access points in our network will issue DHCP leases that place each client on an isolated 10.0.0.0/8 network. Clients cannot directly communicate with each other. You create your own WPA password when you purchase higher speeds. Each end user of our network has his or her own user name and password. As long as you are using a secure site, (starts with https), you have a private and secure connection.

There are no refunds offered or issued on any wireless access, free or purchased.
The Internet can be a very dangerous place. It is your responsibility to insure your, your family, friends and children's safety. We are not responsible or liable for any content, experience, damage or loss that you or anyone incurs by using our free or purchased Internet access.

Electrical power and internet service is supplied by outside companies. Although extremely rare, electrical power as well as phone and cable wires are subject to interruption caused by storms, car wrecks and more. Since this is out of our control, we cannot guaranty that you will have Internet access or even electrical power while at our resort. Therefore no refunds are issued for power failures caused by storms or other conditions that are out of our control.

We are not a hardware provider and we do not offer tech support. We recommend you purchase your own equipment. You can purchase a wireless network adapter at most office and computer stores. You are on your own with tech support. Any wireless adapter you use at Fern River must be 2.4 Ghz, IEEE802.11B compliant.

IN NO EVENT SHALL FERN RIVER RESORT, OR ITS ASSOCIATED PARTIES, SUPPLIERS, CONTRACTORS OR LICENSORS BE LIABLE FOR ANY LOSS, DAMAGE OR CLAIM ARISING OUT OF OR RELATED TO: (i) STORED, TRANSMITTED, OR RECORDED DATA, FILES, OR SOFTWARE; (ii) ANY ACT OR OMISSION OF CUSTOMER, ITS USERS OR THIRD PARTIES; (iii) INTEROPERABILITY, INTERACTION OR INTERCONNECTION OF THE SERVICES WITH
APPLICATIONS, EQUIPMENT, SERVICES OR NETWORKS; OR (iv) LOSS OR DESTRUCTION OF ANY CUSTOMER HARDWARE, SOFTWARE, FILES OR DATA RESULTING FROM ANY VIRUS OR OTHER HARMFUL FEATURE OR FROM ANY ATTEMPT TO REMOVE IT; OR (V) ANY LOSS OF REVENUE, LOSS OF USE, LOSS OF BUSINESS OR LOSS OF PROFIT.
