Hi Fred,

The answer is easy: you can't if using the RemoteRig internal WiFi card.

The only way is to either use a PC to share its internet connection using WiFi, or else use an
external WiFi card such as the Netgear WNCE2001 or similar.

If you search the forum using "hotel" or "hotspot" similar, you will find a lot of information on
this subject.

Explain more precisely what you did with the WNCE2001. It should work just fine.
