Problems with Internet connections abroad via hotel provided username and password
I am currently working in Cyprus and have a HP Compaq 6715b laptop with XP Pro. I use this computer at work and have been provided a WEP key for internet acess and explorer and AOL work perfect.
When I return to my Hotel they provided me with a username and password for me to gain acess to their internet. My computer pick up the wireless signal good strength and conected, however I do not know how I connect with a password and username, I thought I would get an explorer page up for me to enter the password and username, but this page does not connect or provide this option the hotel tell me that no one else has had any problems and do not know what I am meant to do for connection, any sugestions.

b> If your HP Compaq 6715B laptop is lost or stolen, the power-on password can protect the valuable data on your computer. Even so, there may be times you'll want to clear that password and knowing the right procedure will make that easier. Once the power-on password is cleared, the Compaq 6715B will no longer require you to enter a password just to start up your laptop.
Shut down your Compaq 6715B and wait for it to power off. Press the "Power" button to restart the laptop. Tap the "F10" key after the Compaq splash screen appears. Wait for the setup menu to appear. Use the arrow keys to navigate to the "Security" menu and scroll down to the "Power On Password" option. Delete the entries in both boxes, then press the "F10" key. Choose the "Save Changes and Exit" option to exit the setup menu. Wait for the laptop to restart and verify that the laptop does not prompt for a power-on password. Hope this helps.
it doesnt make any difference in what coutry you are. if you say it works at home it should work in other places too. check the ip configuration. if you have static ip&dns try to switch to automatically (dhcp). If dhcp is already set ask for network settings because maybe the access point you are trying to connect to doesn't provide dhcp or it has mac filtering.
Since youre setting up a DSL connection choose Set up broadband connection > PPPoE. You will need the username and password you were given to this account (contact customer service at your ISP for this info). Enter the info and have it remember the password. Click connect. Once Vista finds the connection, it will ask you to choose a network type (Home, Work, or Public). Select the type and enjoy. If the connection fails, recheck your username and password entries.
This should be connected as so. From wall outlet to DSL modem, from DSL modem to D-Link router, From D-Link router to Laptop via wireless or wired connection. You will still need the DSL modem installed but the wire coming from the DSL modem will go to uplink port on the router instead of into the laptop.
