Ihave a hp 510 laptop that has wifi and i am using a wired broadband connection .The question is the times i cannot get wifi whilst over in the us what do i need to use a wired connection leads etc many thanks nobby
pretty much all the leads/connections in the USA are the same as uk except for the power!
wifi is very prevelant in the usa cheaper motels like holiday inn express/marriot courtyard etc offer free wifi and ironically the more expensive the hotel the more likely there will be a charge usually $9.99 a day inc long distance phone calls within usa most hotels offering wired access provide ethernet cables in room etc
many outlets like panera etc offer free wifi a quick scan with Wireless Zero Configuration/netstumbler usually reveals a plethora available connections so be careful what you connect to
as a regular traveller i wish i could pay a (reasonable) "roaming fee" to an isp encompassing access worldwide inc my UK usage or at least use my "reward points" from airlines/hotels to pay for it
