    Question on wireless networking from hotels, etc.

    I have a question about using wireless networks in hotels. My wife
    travels some, and she is not a "power user". I usually end up talking
    her through the manual connection to the hotel's wireless network over
    the phone the first time, then it auto-connects after that.

    My question is this - is there a way to auto-connect to any wireless
    network the laptop sees, to make that process easier for the non-power
    user, or is that considered a security concern so it's not supported?

    thanks..

    Get this utility.

    Then set one Auto Connect Open profile and explain to her how to use it..
