Hello, I'm hoping I am in the right place and would appreciate any help. I just bought the Dell inspiron 1525 which has a wifi connection already included. I haven't bought a router and I do not have an express card yet. I was told I didn't need either to connect to wireless internet. When I turn on my wifi, it gives me unsecure connections and 1 of the connections says "free public wifi" Do I need a router even though I do not have my own internet set up in order to connect to wireless internet? When I try to connect to an excellent signal it says it cannot connect to my pc. The intel wireless card should already be built in, so I am not sure what I am missing here. It also says that there are wireless networks available.
