Has anyone used a wireless networking card in their laptop? I'm not referring to home networking (although in principle it's the same). I've never used one before. I just bought one for our company laptop, so that if someone is on the road they can use the laptop to get company email etc... I installed the card and found that a tenant in the building has wireless networking. I can't connect because it requires a encryption password.
I know about Hot Spots such as in a Starbucks or other places. My question is, how do you connect? Do you pay upfront and get a password or what is the procedure? How about free hot spots. Do you just connect and off you go? I have yet to take the laptop out and give it a try.
