Funny enough, I happen to be staying at a Marriott this week, where apparently I can't do ANYTHING on this network (my iChat client won't even connect!).
Just so happens that I brought my Xbox360 this week and plugged it into the TV to get some Modern Warfare 2 on, and of course, THAT wasn't going to work on the network either right? Right.
So, I broke out my Mifi (from Verizon). Connected my xbox360 to my mifi and played some Call of Duty. No lag.
Okay, I feel better, done ranting against stayonline and guestnet.
