Advice from anyone on using public wireless hotspots (t-mobile, cometa, etc.). Sometimes these work fine for me; most times not. When they don't work, it appears like I have no DNS server available - web browser can't locate any pages. The hotspot shows up on in my wireless display, I connect to it and (apparantly) get an IP address (as shown by IPCONFIG). But that's as far as it goes. Rebooting doesn't help; nor does resetting the DNS in the properties for tcp/ip to ensure automatic DNS server location. What else can I look at to fix this?
