Can't access internet via WLAN using IE

By m_arlow ·
I have tried to access my mailbox, using WLAN at a camping site. The gave me two access codes which I was supposed to use. My built in WLAN inteface under WinXP had no trouble identifying and connecting to the correct WLAN channel. However, this it where the music stopped. I could neither find any way to enter the two access codes, nor could I make my IE see the WLAN channel. I presume that I must somehow configure some part of the WinXP Home Edition or the MS IE. Can anybody help me to get to my mails next time I travel?

If you were connected to them it either did not need the access codes, or you were connected to a different wireless network.
As far as IE, once the connection is established, you may need to change the proxy settings to get it to work. tools -- internet options -- connections -- lan settings
usually, clear all fields (no checkmarks) will work, unless they have specific proxy settings.
