Is there somewhere in Barcelona, Spain, where we can plug in our
laptop to a broadband connection?  My husband is here on business and
the wireless connection at the hotel and at Starbucks is not working
well.  Is there a public point where I can take the laptop and plug
into a broadband connection?

Greetings!

There are several options available in Barcelona.  I took the
information below from the websites and articles listed.  I did not
call to confirm the presence of cabled (CAT-5) connections.

According to an article in D-A-S-H Europe, wired (CAT-5) internet
access is available at Infoespai.  They are located at:

Plaša del Sol 19-20 ground floor.
Open from 10.00 to 22.00 every day.
08012 Barcelona T: 933907236 Fax: 933907237

( http://eu.d-a-s-h.org/infoespai )

They have a small fee structure for certain services, including
printing, but advertise that connections to the internet are free. 
They do not list the speed of the connection.

Information in English is available here:

Additionally, pay-per-use cyber cafe's are available.  Several that
advertise laptop connections are listed below:

El Cafe de Internet
http://www.experienceparadise.com/db/1/advert/internet_cafes/no/Spain/all/Barcelona/0342424211/page.html

Easy Internet Cafe is one of the largest, but does not list if they
offer direct CAT-5 connections.  ( http://www.easyinternetcafe.com/ )

They have two locations in Barcelona:

Tangaworld Cybercafe seems to be the oldest, but again does not list
if they offer direct CAT-5 connections:

This should allow you to connect more reliably to the internet while
in Spain.  If you require further information, please ask for a
clarification before rating this question.
