I have an IBM T30 with which I can usually make a connection to a public wireless network and go on to the Internet, but I have had trouble at a couple of places repeatedly. I have a wireless setup at home that works perfectly. I can successfully connect at most airports and at lots of hotels.
This weekend, however, I was unable to connect successfully to an wireless netowrk at a La Quinta hotel -- even though my computer said that the signal strength was "excellent" and that my computer's status was "connected". The hotel staff wasn't able to help. I have always had good luck at La Quinta's before.
In addition, I have never been able to successfully connect at the Albuquerque airport on their public network. To repeat, I almost never have trouble connecting elsewhere (hotels, airports, malls, auto dealer, etc.).
Is this just one of those Windows things (I use Windows XP Pro, SP2, with the most current updates)?
Any trouble-shooting advice would be appreciated.
