Do not worry, Wifi pass phrases for personal use should only be in printable ASCII characters, in other words English characters. They do not support Unicode or other codepages. For more details check the Wikipedia's Wi-Fi Protected Access page. Except if you are redirected to a webpage for authentication, that's a whole different story and Karlson's ...

For Android depending on the model of your phone you may have to add Russian Language to the available keyboards. I have Galaxy S5 and under Settings -> Languages and Input you should be able to do this from the Galaxy App Store.

I am Russian and I never met a WiFi password in Cyrillic.

I traveled in Russia in 2011 with a tablet, smartphone, Vita etc. Every WiFi network was in Latin characters. As with most nations they try to be somewhat accommodating to tourists and English is a good baseline, even for people on holiday from other parts of Europe.

I've been living in Russia for 3 years, lived in various hostels and hotels, but I never saw a Wi-Fi with a cyrillic password anywhere. I'm not even sure that it's technically possible.

Wifi is available on the majority of ICE trains (>90%), but it is not guaranteed to work (so you won't get a rebate in case it does not work). Also, Wifi is only available on certain tracks, as seen on this map: http://www.bahn.de/p/view/mdb/bahnintern/mdb_174376_karte_railnet_2015.pdf Whether you get Internet on your trip also depends on the route that ...

I have been to Russia. Once I was hosted by a friend in Moscow. He said I could use the wifi. He gave me the password. Accessing to his wifi was just like anywhere else on the planet. Here i show you a ticket of a Cafetería in Moscow called Costa Coffee where they specify the login and password to access their wifi. As you can see, it is in latin alphabet. ...

Most Wifi Upload Speeds Are Probably Less Than 5Mbps It looks like most terrestrial ISPs in Bali are using legacy copper (ie. repurposed telephone and coaxial TV cables). The highest upload speed you'll achieve at any single site served by legacy copper is most likely limited to 5Mbps. The 5 Mbps upload speed limitation is inherent to most legacy copper ...

Big malls have free WiFi for sure. The Dubai Mall offers it free of registration, while Mall of the Emirates require a simple registration - the password will be sent to your phone with a SMS. The hotel where I was staying had free WiFi in the hall. If you really need internet I suggest to get a SIM card from local company Du (Emirates Integrated ...

Thanks to @Relaxed 's helpful comments I now know at least the power situation: right now you might find yourself on a train where only first class has power but this is changing and at some indefinite point in the future every seat will have power. Details: The SBB timetable change on 14 December 2014 says: From 14 December, passengers will be able to ...

I can verify that the N700a trains have power sockets for the seats at the ends of the cars. Look at the bottom of the side wall under the window near your feet. Plugged in right now, actually :-)

How about Coworking Salzburg? They rent coworking space for as little as 25EUR (as of writing), including a desk, power outlets and Wi-Fi. The location is not exactly central, but to be fair coworking spaces rarely are.

I lived in that zone for three years (1993-1996), and I have traveled in it several times more recently, but this is the first I have ever heard of its existence. How did you even become aware of it? I lived in Lexington, VA, and my travels have been mainly on the Blue Ridge and in the Shenandoah and James River valleys. I can't speak for areas closer to ...

About cafes and such: A generally valid answer if a cafe has outlets near the tables won´t be possible, but nobody will have a problem if you just ask. More than "yes, there and there" or "no" won´t happen. This site lists some cafes, restaurants etc. with free WIFI: Afro Cafe, Bürgerspitalplatz 5 Altstadt Hotel Garni Trumer Stube, Bergstraße 6 ...

The E5 and E6 series used in northern Japan (Tohoku Shinkansen; Komachi, Hayabusa, some Hayate) have a pair of 100V outlets for the front row of each car, and a single outlet beneath the window on the other rows on each side. Note that since the seats rotate, there are also two outlets behind the back row of each car, although they would be inconvenient to ...

So long as you're using your own computers using SSL/TLS on websites should be sufficient, with a few caveats. Make sure you don't have any rogue CA certs installed. eg. Superfish. Make sure that the URL in the address bar always says https instead of http to protect against sslstrip style attacks. Also, this question might be better posted on ...

Wifi can be found fairly widely, the big problem though is that almost all of them need a UAE mobile number to receive your login details. Non-UAE numbers aren't accepted. Login pages often look like this, with the UAE restriction: Assuming you do have a UAE number (/get one), then you can find wifi at most of the main metro stations, tram stops, various ...

In addition to the answer by Alessandro, I like to add that (at least in spring 2014) the registration in the Mall of the Emirates used to require a LOCAL telephone number. This can be quite a problem for tourists. If you are willing to pay for wifi, there are multiple options in Dubai, using credit card or skpe.

If your laptop has a relatively good antenna, then you can stalk the outside of Delta Sky Club lounges and see if you can pick up their free internal wifi. There was a period when they were enforcing passwords / logins, but this is no longer the case apparently (I now have a mobile plan that allows sharing, so I no longer lounge-stalk).

The situation in Italy for free WiFi... is... ehm, how can I say... catastrophic? I had the chance to stay for 2 weeks in Rome to improve my Italian so I can tell you how the situation is. Essentialy, italians do have free WiFi but it requires an italian number in the registration process: so either you have it (and if you manage to use this free WiFi ...

Not sure about Laos and Malaysia but I didn't have any wifi issues in Thailand, Cambodia and Vietnam, especially if you're located in the CBD or a very touristy area. If you ultimately need a guaranteed reliable connection on your travels, TEP wireless might be a good idea.
