My wife travels all over the US with her Dell laptop as a flight attendant. A couple of days ago she shut her computer down after using the internet while connected to the hotels wireless network. The next morning IE6 could not find server. The Linksys wireless card was connected with good signal strength but IE would not browse the internet. I had her try Firefox with the same result. When she brought it home it connected to my wireless network as soon as it booted up and browsed with no problem. I cleared the Temp Internet Cache and History and figured it was a minor glitch. She left yesterday and called home saying she had the same problem. This was a different hotel with wide open access. Why am I only able to browse when it is at home. Any assistance would be greatly appreciated.
