personally i wouldn't be using a router just plug the laptop directly into the wall socket and i'd think you'd be connected to the internet,
the key, i'd think, is used if you want to connect wireless,
first you'd find the hotel wireless network in your find wireless networks, then you'd try and connect to it, it'll then ask for the password/key the hotel gave you, enter it and then you should have access to the internet.
in my experience routers are usually used only at home to allow more than 1 pc to connect to the internet through your isp.
I thought the router would help with security as I will be doing business and other sensitive work.
If I plugged the ethernet cable into the wall then to my router and pc wouldn't it provide that extra measure off security?
I say this undestanding no system is perfectly safe. This is my home set up so I was asking for clarifiction as to the how to's if i were to use the router.
Were you suggestng that if I did just plug in with my router, I would have internet without adjustments?
Perhaps someone so inclined would like to join our discussion.
Thank you for replying.

have a nice safe trip and i hope it is as simple as just plugging in the router and laptop to get on the net.
>>Thank you for the kind words.
It is a.m. and ready to go so I have a last question and perhaps you could help, or someone could jump in.
On the laptop, "Control panel" >network and internet>network and sharing center>choose homegroup and sharing options>change advanced sharing settings.
Do any of these have to do with internet connection? Specifically, I turned off the first three. I do not want to share with any computers except my own at home. File and printer and public folder I think I should have off. Network discovery I was not sure about so is off but I do not know if it will stop me from connecting to the hotel's ethernet jack for internet.
I will check in again for help so if you have a moment I would appreciate what information I could get and thank you again you.
