OT (wireless LAN config in Europe)

I have also noticed that SOME wireless sites want you to browse to a webpage
first and register before they assign an IP address that get's you out to the
Internet.
We have a field agent in Italy, trying to connect to his hotel WiFi, he
can see it but is unable to connect. He keeps getting a limited or no
connectivity message on the tray icon.

I've had him disable his firewall and changed to mixed mode protection
RTS/CTS, no luck.

Has anyone here ever used a WiFi LAN connection in Europe? And if so
were there any settings that needed to be changed?

Gerarad,

Wireless in Europe are the same standards IEEE 802.11
so No special requirements in Europe. Possibly he has entered an
incorrect pass phrase / key and so DHCP is not providing an ip address
and hence limited / no connectivity.
