If you are traveling with your laptop, connect to the hotel internet connection as you normally would, then create in essence another hotspot for your TP to connect through your laptop. I posted this in a response on another thread, but here it is:
Best of all, it is free!!
-laptop with windows (I am using 32bit Windows 7 ultimate and it works fine)
-wireless adapter with your laptop
-administrator access to windows CMD prompt
1. check to see if your wireless adapter in your laptop has any ad-hoc connection settings available. Be sure to set value to "enable". You should not have to even adjust any settings to get this to work, I didn't. Based on your configurations, you may.
2. Open the windows CMD prompt as an administrator (right click and run as administrator)
3. Type the following : netsh wlan set hostednetwork mode=allow ssid=testwifi key="123456789012"
the ssid that you set can be of any value
the key (with quotes) can be set to any value. You will need this key to connect from the Touchpad
4. Check your DEVICE MANAGER and ensure that a new adapter is now showing entitled "Microsoft Virtual WiFi Miniport adapter" appeared
5. Share your CURRENT internet connection pointing to the new adapter you just created. Check the ALLOW CURRENT USERS TO CONNECT...". Then, In the dropdown box, select the new connection that appeared.
6. Start your new network in CMD prompt with: netsh wlan start hostednetwork
7. Enjoy! The HP touchpad will see this adhoc connection because your laptop is running in Infrastructure Mode.
a. ensure your internet connection is active
b. the wireless adapter that you will use to create the network should not be connected to any other network
c. no static ip addresses should be set in the configuration of your laptop wireless adapter
d. to check if your created network is properly set and running, use the following command at the CMD prompt: netsh wlan show hostednetwork
