we have high speed internet in our hotel.
we just plugin a network cable into the laptop of the guest and the guest is connected to the internet.
we do not use a proxy server.we have used natting (network address translation) from an isp
to configure the settings all we do is to make sure never dial a connection is used in the internet options.
and use get ip automatically in the network card properties.
but in some cases even if i had done ipconfig/release ad renew after doing the above settings ,the guest was not able
to connect to the internet.
checked the ip settings with ipconfig command
in another case showed me
