Wireless Can I use my Lap top in a hotel?

  gel 19:20 08 Oct 2007

I have broadband and my lap top has the facility to go wireless.
My desk top does not have wireless
If I visit a hotel advertising 'free wireless facilities will I be able to use my lap top.
The whole business of 'wireless' appears to me to very complex and it is very easy to ask a daft question as this may be.
Thank you for your patience

the easy answer to that is yes you can!
just flick the wireless switch on the laptop (maybe on the front next to the bluetooth switch) and it should just say (next to the clock) wireless networks detected click here.
find the desired network (reception can tell you what its called) and click connect!
