I have no problem running my laptop wirelessly from my lynskys router at home - using XP......when I try to connect to other wireless connections away from my home (hot spots or other wireless routers which I have the key to) the computer searches finds networks and connects easily enough showing good strength signal connected......but when i then try to display my homepage via Internet explorer I get the ' can not connect page'......i have repaired connection refreshed etc always the same problem.......I am guessing I have a settings box ticked or not ticked properly but no idea which - can anyone advise please

it was the TCP/IP settings needed to be set to detect IP address and DNS automatically....
