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.

Compaq presario sr2020nx ethernet adapter issue


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.

My laptop will connect with the internet though a home router. At a hotel or airport it will not connect with the internet service provided by these places. What is wrong


More information needed:
Does your laptop have a wireless adapter?
How do you connect at home? (wireles or ethernet cable?)
What brand of laptop do you have?
What troubleshooting steps have you already taken?

For your information, when away from your home network, you must change your wireless settings to point to the hotel or airport provider where you are trying to connect.

Usually hotels have some contact information and some basic support (some better than others) for their wireless connections.

Sometimes other programs, such as Firefox and AOL, can accidentally be set to your default internet browser. This is how to change it back to Internet Explorer on Windows XP.
[edit] Steps
  1. Open Internet Explorer
  2. Go to Tools > Internet Options
  3. Click to the Programs tab
  4. Click Reset Web Settings
  5. When the pop-up menu comes up, select Yes.
  6. Another method that does reset all your other options:
  7. Open Control Panel and double-click Internet Options.
  8. Click the Programs tab.
  9. Click to select the Internet Explorer should check to see whether it is the default browser check box.
  10. Click OK.
  11. Start Internet Explorer and when you are prompted to make it the default browser, click Yes.

I have an HP Pavillion laptop that is about 6 years old and since I bought it as a display model I didn'tget any books with it. I want to know how to get on the internet from hotels when I'm on the road...


If my guess is right you want to set up a wireless internet connection. So all you need is a wireless adaptor in your computer. If its not very old laptop i guess there should be a wireless adaptor inside it. if it dont have one then you can buy one at very cheap price.All you need to know is if they have secured connection. Because if they do have secured one then you need their password to use that internet.
If its not secured then you can access it anytime. please let me know if i am not getting your question right ..
Thanks
please rate !!!
