I must admit I am am a "wireless" newbie. I have a simple question. When I am on the road I stay at a Holiday Inn that provides a wireless bridge to be plugged into the USB port of my laptop. I have tried on several dates and never can establish a network connection when using their bridge, I have switched bridges, moved locations etc. Allegedlly other patrons are able to connect no problem. When I am in the office I can attach my laptop to the Internet (using cable) no problem so I am able to obtain network connections.
My question, is there more that needs to be done other then plugging int their router? Are there Windows settings, network cards, anything that needs to be done on the laptop or should all of this just work like magic once I attach to their routers. Since I have never used wireless I have no idea, originally I thought I needed a special network card but people are telling me no.
