    Hey all: I'm using a MBP on 10.6.3.
    Odd thing. I'm able to connect to Starbucks Att Wi-Fi with Airport but when i go to other cafes like Peets or Borders...i'm not able to connect. I can only go to Starbucks. Have any clues on this one? TQ.

    I used to be able to hook up to the other networks. Its free. I have no clue on this and was hoping that others might know a workaround from experience.
    I didn't get any WEP/WPA info. I should have also said that when i turn Airport On, there is a connection detected with the WiFi icon, but when i open up either Safari or Firefox it just hangs. Not so with Starbucks/ATT again.

    Maybe those other "open" networks (do they have a lock symbol beside their name in the AirPort drop-down menu?) have excluded your computer via MAC filtering.
    Have you taken a look at System Preferences > Network > AirPort and seen what is reported there about the AirPort status?
