    So I'm in a hotel with wireless. I have two laptops one with Vista and
    one with XP. I cannot get the The XP machine to go online. I had a
    D-Link wireless G cardbus card. It just would not go online. I thought
    is was because the signal was low. (However, the Vista machine connected
    great)Eventually I got a "good" signal and got on for a short while. I
    figured this might be problem with the card so today I bought a new
    Trendnet Wireless card. Now I have 100% signal and still I can't get on
    line. It seems the browsers can't find the connections.

    Signal strength :good
    Status: Connected

    Both IE and Firefox cannot get online.Whats up?

    Still trying to solve this. I noticed that the "Activity" icon in the
    wireless Network connection window has padlock between the symbol for
    the wireless and the computer icon. Could this be the problem? How di I
    unlock it?

    OK so the padlock is the windows fire wall. switched that off but
    problem continues. I noticed that under the support tap in Wirless
    network connection there is no info listed. address type, IP address,
    subnet etc. Should there be info here?
