Laptop wireless connections abroad

My Viao laptop would not connect to a hotel wireless system in Costa Rica. Do I need to adjust some settings for this to happen?

Did your laptop shown any wireless connections available? What OS is it?

Yes it did show they were available, but couldn't seem to connect in the niormal way. Thought they may be at a different frequency or something. OS is windows xp. Hope that helps. R

I have no idea if things are different in Costa Rica; perhaps some world travellers may know.

In France and Spain all I do on my Vaio is to look for available open networks, and select one. Works fine.

Have you check the hotel front desk as you might need a pin # to access the wireless Network and a security code to access the Internet
