Hi,
I know that this may sound stupid but, when I use my laptop which has a D-link wireless card (which I use at home daily) in a hotel does it just link to the hotels router automaticly or do I have to do something to make that happen. I'm going to Cozumel and I need to take my laptop which as I stated has a wireless card. What do I need to do to get on the internet once I get there. I've only used wireless internet at home an. I'm a novice and any help would be appreciated

Hi Dyrbooker.
There is nothing you should need to do.
Your wireless card will detect the connection automaticly.
I travel extensively across the US. Hotels, Airports, etc, are nothing more then hotspots.
I would assume it works the same way in Cozumel.
I strongly suggest you do not transmit sensitive data or make financial transactions in a hotspot without taking security precautions first. I use a VPN for that stuff and also encrypt any files I upload to somewhere else.
If you already have hotel reservations, contact them with any questions you have reguarding wireless connections.
