You would need to connect to a public wireless access point. Or you could you blue tooth and coonect through your mobile phone

Before you travel somewhere you can usually find good information about access points there. I know in the US that some companies offer subscriptions to their "national" network... coverage is not the best though.

If your laptop/wifi card does not have software to find access points, you can download some free software that will find access points from the AT&T Wireless web site [wifistore.qpass.com] (now Cingular). It works with finding any access points, not just AT&T/Cingular access points.
