Sometimes they set the wireless to be unsecured. But you have to pay to use them.
Please check with the hotel staff about setting it to use.
If its completely free, double click the network icon on the task bar, click support tab and click repair.

Play online ps3 in hotel free wireless Internet n won't connect


I'm staying in a hotel and have free wi-fi and wired internet but I can not seem to get online. During the connection test the "obtain IP address" step is successful, however the next step "internet connection" fails. This is an unsecured network and does not require any wpa keys , and I don't think it requires an SSID. I had no trouble connecting my laptop.

I just got a HP Pavilion dv4000 what will i need to have internet access at a motel or somewhere that it detects wireless networks I dont even know where to start the basics would be a big help thanks


In a lot of cases they are setup to find wireless signals automatically. If you are in a place with a wifi, you should see an icon in the bottom right of the screen. If you click on that it should show you what networks are available and if they are unsecured, which most motels are, you can click on "connect" and that should do it. If you go on as "public" it protects you a little better. Make sure you always update your virus software when roaming.

Excellent Wireless Network Connection, cannot access internet


The unsecure public network nay be using mac address filtering. In this case, the network will show as being unsecured, and will even allow you to connect in some cases, but then will not allow you to surf once connected.

Wireless network connection problem


Ok with a peripheral on USB or on PC card bay you can try to connect to a Wireless lan:
Please check this tip on the subject
To connect to an existing WLAN you must be sure your wireless card is working: I assume you installed all the related sw coming with the wlan card.
Using the card installed driver check card is enabled and running (in Control Panel/Network connection should be visible and enabled)
Then you can connect to an open Wi-Fi HOTSPOT or to your WLAN you configure with a router connected to your internet modem.
  1. To connect to an existing HOTSPOT: find a location where you know a wi-fi access point (HOTSPOT) is active: Internet cafe,, library, airport,, station, hotel etc.your card should be able to find the existing network when you select "show existing network" in wlan driver. Connect if network is "unsecure" (= no password or key is required) or ask for password if you can get it for a fee (hotel)
  2. To connect to your home or office WLAN be sure to use a router (or access point) with same standard of your card (802-11G or B or A or N) with same security protocol (WEP or WPA) and configure your router Internet access BEFORE wireless access. Connect your PC to your router using a LAN cable and be sure you can browse through the router.(contact your ISP for router specs if you need it: PPOA/E and other). Follow the tip and your router doc for settings

Laptop - internet


Yes, it is possible to connect to a wireless network outside of your home provided it is unsecured. That means you will not be asked for a password before you can wirelessly connect.

All you have to do is to search for an available network while in your car then connect to that network.

Wireless laptop


To use wireless conection you need a Wireless Access Point i.e. wirless router. Then you can connect your laptop to this router and use internet. But if you have modem in your lap (generally all laps are coming with modem now) you should direct attach the phone line to your lap. In this case you need a dial-up no which you can ask your ISP.

If any problem just Ask me
