Should I stay in LAX for a 14 hour layover?

I have a 14 hour layover starting 10PM tomorrow night at LAX before I leave on a 12:30PM plane to China the following day. I need help deciding between staying at LAX or leaving to go to a 24/7 cafe...can anyone comment on the free wifi at LAX?

I'm planning to stay up for the entirety of my layover as a way to beat the potential jet lag I'll have when I get to SH (plus I'll be knocked out for the 14 hour flight).
I have a couple of movies in my external I can watch and I plan to get some work done.
My two options that I see are to either stay at LAX and use their wifi (which is why I need someone to vouch for it...I think it will be slow and some woman on the internet claims that she got two viruses from connecting to the LAX wifi along with some other stranger...) OR I can take the bus and get to Pier 212 in Santa Monica. It's a seedy and kind of dirty (by the yelp reviews) 24/7 eatery/cafe. The wifi seems good though.
I'd normally try and explore LA but I'll be so tired staying up that I just want somewhere with wifi where I can chill out.
