With absolutely no details about your Hotel internet connection, here is all i can do to help:
1. Start your PS3, and connect to the WiFi using the automatic settings.
2. If your internet still doesn't work (which i guess is the problem you are trying to describe) then open your internet browser on the PS3. Most likely your Hotel internet connection requires you to log in or "agree to their terms and conditions" on their home page.
3. Once you open the internet browser, wait till their default page opens. If it doesn't, try www.google.com and then maybe their default page may open.
4. Agree to the terms etc, log in if required, and you should be good to go. (follow the instructions on the website. Some hotels leave a 'instruction pamphlet' in your room, on the table describing the log in instructions)
5. Close the browser and see if you can connect to PSN
Thank you for using FixYa!
Let us know if this solution helped
are you using this at home or at a hotel?
some hotels will block outside SMTP servers for security/spam etc.
If this is an email server provided by your ISP at home try and ping the SMTP server. contact your ISP for any changes etc.
no you dont you have wireless capability on your laptop. just turn on your wireless, click on it and it will show you all internet connections just click on your router name and it will connect. same when your away hotel will tell you their router name or (ssid) as its called.
Connect your ethernet cable from your Broadband modem into your laptop. Make sure you can browse webpages. Open the VPN software installed by your employer, and enter your login credentials assigned by your employer to authenicate. Once connected, you will have Network Access and Intranet Connections to your workplace. This will work from WiFi hotspots, hotels, Internet cafes, etc. If you do not yet have your VPN software installed, or have your credentials, speak to your employer as they may need to create and account and a certificate for your VPN connection.
I figured it out! I am also in a hotel room with only ethernet...and can connect to the network but not to the internet. When I got onto the internet for the first time on my laptop, there was a hotel internet webpage that came up immediately. You have to click CONNECT for 24hrs; 48; 1 week etc. unfortunately for us, Xbox doesn't have a internet browser like the PS3 does. So we can not click CONNECT when we are attempting to connect on the 360. The only reason why I know this is correct is because my friend brought his PS3 to my hotel room and that hotel connect window popped up and immediately we were playing Modern Warfare 2 with "full bars"...Xbox should really add a download for a browser! Like 360 way more. Sorry guys!
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.
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)
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
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.
There is a couple of different ways to do this. 1- you can use the built in wireless in the computer at places that have free wifi ie... McDonald's, Wendy's, BurgerKing, Coffee shops, Malls, hotels, etc... most of these have free wifi. The plus side is it's free, the downside is you are restricted to finding a place with wifi. 2- you can go through your cell phone provider and purchase an air time PC card. With this card you can go on line anywhere anytime as long as you have a signal, same as your cell. I know that just about every hotel/motel out there has free wifi now, and my folks like to travel alot in their motor home, and they told me that they see more and more camp grounds with wifi.
Are you trying to access your laptop (which you leave at home) from another computer away from home?
If so, head over to www.logmein.com and sign up for a free account. It's a wonderfully easy way to get remote control of your machine from another location without worrying about the networking.
Are you trying to use your laptop on the road and still have Internet?
If so, you will need some method for your laptop to connect to the Internet. If your laptop has a wireless WiFi card you can go to some location that has wireless internet. Many locations (such as hotels, cafes, and coffee houses) have free or paid wireless Internet service.
You can also get a Wireless Aircard as your friend said. These are a fee-based service from cell companies such as Verizon or Sprint that give you a card that plugs into your laptop and uses the wireless cell network to give you Internet access.
