I am not able to get my laptop (Sony Vaio) connected over a wireless network in the hotel, although I can see other wireless network around me. My iPhone 4 easily connected to the network and a friend of mine also did that easily. The whole guests have no problem other than me.

    Have you tried disabling IPV6 for the network connection in question? 1. Right click the Network Connection icon in the Notification Area > Open Network and Sharing Center 2. On the left hand pane, click "Change Adapter Settings" 3. Right click on your Network connection in question (should be called Local Area Connection if hard-wired) > Properties 4.Uncheck the box under "The Connection Uses the following items:" that says Internet Protocol Version 6. 5. Click OK.
