Hopefully simple.

I'm taking my laptop into an office that has Windows server 2003. I want to be able to get internet access, so can I just plug in my laptop to a free port on the switch and get internet access?

I was at first under the impression that I would have to log into the domain and add my laptop to it, but I have been told that this is not necessary.

So what do the experts on EE say?
