I turned the UAC <sp> off so I was running as admin that wasn't the problem.
The screen after doing ipconfig /release looks nothing like it did in XP or
2000 for that matter. It has new things that I'm not aware of, instead of
just seeing the IP address there are different connections and one of them
that worked or says it was, was local but I couldn't get to the internet at
the hotel even though it said signal strength was excellent but with limited
connectivity what ever that means.
