I'm wondering if anyone knows if any of the hotels in Study Butte or Terlingua have internet connections.

When we were at the Starlight Theatre in August, there were at least 6 people in there connected to their WiFi .
Not a hotel, but the Lone Stars were only $2.

The Big Bend Motor Inn used to have wi-fi, although it was supposedly pretty weak.

I was really looking at staying at the Chisos Mining Co. but I haven't seen anything on their website about having internet access. (Unless I'm blind and missed it) But heck if the Starlight has WiFi I'd much rather get on there and have a beer. or two. or three. or four.

Some businesses in the Terlingua area have wi-fi hot spots.  Somewhere there is a map.  Check for the map at the Quicksilver Bank.  I've used Big Bend  Motel's by parking next to the restaurant.  While the Starlight is closed, there are other places that offer wi-fi.

There was supposed to be WiFi available in the lobby of the hotel in the park, also on the deck outside the restaurant I believe.

Basin Lodge and RGV Store both have free WI-FI. I actually used both last week.

Forever Resorts has actually expanded WiFi coverage in the Basin area.  There is also a repeater unit on the front porch of the convenience store, so that ought to cover the entire parking area.  I don't know how good reception actually is inside the rooms, however.  There was talk of extending coverage up to the cottages area, but that may take some time.  The repeaters work best with clear line of site between them, and that may be a problem.

Kosmic Kathy's Kowgirl Kafe has wireless all the time, even when she's not open.

Thanks, Kathy!

Cool! Any idea what kind of range her modem has? Is it accessible from any of the Chisos Mining Company Motel rooms/cabins?

Get out of your room and become one with the desert at Kosmic Kathy's!  I've only eaten there twice -- a couple of years apart. I was amazed when Kathy remembered us as we ordered a couple of her great sandwiches the second visit.  That gal doesn't miss a thing!

There is a computer at the Ghost Town Cafe available for public use but no wifi.  As mentioned above, La Posada Milagro has wifi, it's a nice place for breakfast and lunch.  Leapin' Lizard art gallery has wifi.  I believe Terlingua Store does as well.
