Networks and Internet Explorer

  hairyface 22:18 30 Aug 2003

Just bought a Wireless card (Sitecom WL-100i, 802 11g)trying to access internet through a hotel network, which worked previously with a card hired from the hotel. my new card finds the signals for 6 networks, but IE will not work, no connection available, try to reconnect.I have run the network wizard, (Win XP Pro)tried manual configuration,enabled or disabled everything in networking properties or Internet properties, still no luck!
I also had the same problem at an Internet cafe with a LAN connection. Retried the hired wireless card after having installed my own wireless card, accessed immediately!
Anybody got a fix?Its driving me mad!

Make a note of the settings for the hired wireless card, and enter them for your Sitecom card when you replace it.

It could be the WEP settings, ad-hoc vs access point, or a whole number of different settings.

It may also be that the hotel will only let it's own adaptors work, identified via their MAC addresses.

Have you asked the hotel what settings you should be using?
