problems connecting to the internet

    I borrowed a friend's XP netbook to take with me on a trip so I would
    not have to lug my heavy laptop on the trip. So I am setting it up to
    use for email and web use on the trip.

    My friend has it set up to connect through his own home wireless network.

    I created a separate user account to not mess his up. How do I set
    things up so it work on any network - as in hotels etc like my present
    laptop does when I travel with it.

    The netbook's ipconfig /all settings are as follows:
    > Windows IP Configuration
    >
    > Host Name . . . . . . . . . . . . : Serafina
    > Primary Dns Suffix . . . . . . . :
    > Node Type . . . . . . . . . . . . : Unknown
    > IP Routing Enabled. . . . . . . . : No
    > WINS Proxy Enabled. . . . . . . . : No
    >
    > Ethernet adapter Wireless Network Connection:

    > Physical Address. . . . . . . . . : 00-26-4D-AC-01-C4
    > Dhcp Enabled. . . . . . . . . . . : No
    > IP Address. . . . . . . . . . . . : 192.168.1.109
    > Subnet Mask . . . . . . . . . . . : 255.255.255.0
    > Default Gateway . . . . . . . . . : 192.168.1.1
    > DNS Servers . . . . . . . . . . . : 64.83.1.10
    > 209.137.160.3


    1. What should I change - and how?
    2. Will this mess his settings for him?

    Thanks for any help.
