Would be used for what?
If the laptop is wireless, all you do in turn it on in the wireless environment. It'll find the signal and ask you if you want to "join". You say yes. Done. Some hotels charge for wireless, most are free. Some hotels want you to register and provide the proper screen to input either your name or your room number.
Wireless setup is really painless, just follow the screen prompts.
If they have wired Internet you will take an Ethernet cable. I always carry one with me just in case the wireless is painfully slow.

There are 10 types of people who understand binary; those that do and those that don't.
I'm going on my first "business" trip & the hotel has its own wireless system,I know nothing (emphasis on NOTHING) about setting up my laptop (a new Lenovo) wirelessly...IF I took my own USB cable would that make it easier to set up for email & web surfing?
If not how do I do either?
