I am in a hotel with my laptop (windows xp). The hotel has a wireless connection and the laptop successfully connects to it. I can't, however, access the internet with my browser. I can open a command prompt and ping internet addresses (e.g., www.google.com
) without a problem but can't get to any sites through my browser.
When the computer first connects and you open your browser, you are supposed to be prompted by the hotel's website for some information. That prompting never happens. Instead the browser simply reports that it is connecting to site 188.8.131.52 and eventually tells you that it can't connect.
I have a second laptop in the hotel room, which I am using to type this note and it works fine.
Any ideas how I can get connected?
