Using my wireless laptop away from home

  Libby B 19:16 13 Aug 2009

Hi there, could someone please talk me through what I need to do with my wireless laptop when I take it away with me on business next week.

The accommodation I am staying in has broadband. I am told that there will be a router there and I have been given a 26 digit figure to enter into my own computer when I want to connect to the internet.

I am not really sure what to do and I don’t want to muck anything up as I will have no one nearby to ask for help!

Would someone kindly help me out here!
