wireless access in hotel.. HELP!

I have a friend out in LA and he just called me to ask how to connect up to the hotel wireless network. I've not done this before so I told him I'd research & call him back later.

He has a user name & password that the hotel gave him.

He's using a Compaq Presario laptop with built in wireless access. He uses it daily at his office with no trouble.

Can anyone give me some advice to give him? I'd appreciate it.

He should get into the wireless setup, usually located in the taskbar by the clock. There should be a section that shows available wireless networks or SSIDs. Look for one with the name of the hotel, and connect to it. Since they gave him a username and password he should be able to get to the hotel's login page when he starts up Intenet Explorer where he inputs that info.
