Question on wireless networking from hotels, etc.

#1
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..

Set a profiles for Home work etc.
Then set one Auto Connect Open profile and explain to her how to use it..
