    I have an IBM Thinkpad laptop (1.6Gh) with built-in LAN, wireless, and IR.
    At home, on my DSL, I have no problems connecting to the roiuter via my
    wireless but when I am at a hotel, the only way that I can get my laptop to
    connect is to insert a linux live cd in the cd/dvd drive aand reboot. Linux
    finds the wireless (as well as all the other hardware) and allows me to
    connect to the internet. My wireless is a Red Inalblanca (or some
    such...linux says Prism 2.4 Wavelan chip, vendor: Intersil Corporation) and
    in Windows, when I click the tray icon (it looks like a little tower), the
    wording looks like spanish and I cannot read spanish, so, I do not have any
    idea what the heck any of it means! I've tried everything to get it to work
    in the motel, including disabling, uninstalling, re-enabling, reinstalling,
    etcetera ... all to no avail! It ends up disabling the device and won't
    re-enable at all! I end up having to boot the live Linux DVD to get on the
    internet!

    Thanks all,
    James

    uninstall the damn thing and re-install using an english language driver.
