Vista wireless connects to public network but not to internet

  1. My laptop is a Dell Studio 17, 64-bit, Vista Home Premium. It connects with no problem to home encrypted wireless, but I cannot connect to Internet in public.

    I've talked to IT employees at this "public" place (actually it's a local hospital where my husband is a patient), and since I can get to their network they consider the no-Internet connection a problem of my computer and can't help me, which is totally understandable since they're employees of the hospital.

    I've uploaded a Word document I created by doing a print screen of the Network and Sharing Center screen. As you'll see, I'm open to the hospital's public access but X'd from Internet connection.

    Any help would be appreciated. I'm spending upwards of 10 hours a day in the hospital and there are just so many books I can read.

    Marla
