if you right click the wireless icon with the x on it and then click view available wireless connections, does it show any. are any of them unsecured. even though they might be unsecured you still might not be able to connect.  like a computer to computer network.  most of the ones i get when i'm traveling say unsecured but you have to pay a fee to use them or have an att account or something of the sort.  and the only way to find out is to go into the place and ask the manager.

another thing, if you have a profile set up with your router at home it might be trying to connect to the profile that you have set up at home. if you have that set to be your first choice to connect to it might be trying to connect to that.
