How long to clear customs and buy visa at Cairo airport?

Hi – I’m coming over to Egypt for the 1st time and will be arriving at 20:00 (Air France). I’m considering heading straight to Sharm El-Sheikh since I’m already at the airport. There is an Egypt Air flight from Cairo to SSH at 22:30. I don’t have any check in luggage, but I’ll have a laptop and an ipad (do I need to declare these?).

Question is: is 2 1/2 hours enough time to make it off the Air France plane, buy a visa, clear customs and get over to Egypt Air gate?

If it is not enough time, does Cairo airport have any free wifi that I can order an Uber to a hotel for the night?

Anything else I need to consider?
