Re: Stupid free wireless question
It's not a stupid question at all. I only recently discovered the answer to your question. Windows Vista make this fairly easy, but I'm assuming you are using Windows XP
Provided your laptop is equipped with the necessary hardware, such as a wireless modem, what you need to do is find "Network Connections" (in Control Panel). Open Network Connections. You should see a network that might be labeled "wireless." Usually there is some ID associated to the wireless network that lets you know it's from your hotel. Select that network and it should connect you without too much trouble.
Hope this helps.
