Wireless Networkyness

My mom uses dial-up at home. She has a USB Wireless Network card in her laptop. She was recently in a hotel that said it had free wireless access to the web in every room. She couldn't connect. When she asked the hotel staff what she needed to do, they froze like a deer in headlights then bounced into the air, flopped about on the floor and expired in giant gouts of blood like deer hitting the front of a tractor trailer.
OK, probably not that last part.

The reason I'm posting here is that I was hoping one of you wireless or ultra-geeky people (the two spheres overlap) might know what she needed to do to access the network. She thought she needed a password or a network name. I thought this unlikely as I've known people to hit other networks without meaning to. She said she changed her browser options to use a LAN connection and not dial a connection.

I appreciate your assistance.
