    2 nights ago I purchased a Linksys WPC54GS for my laptop so that I could access the Free Wireless Internet at the motel I was staying at in Ohio, and it worked great. Now I am in a hotel in CA that has free Wireless Internet access also, and my computer says I'm connected, but when I try to access the internet I get "Host is unreachable or DNS server culd not resolve the DNS name." Can anyone tell me what to do to get online?

    Go down to the front desk and ask them for their network settings/codes etc. See if they can help you since its their network.
