I don't know enough about wireless to help you, but have a question that
might help others help you: Are you booting your laptop AFTER you get to
the coffee shop, or is it already running? Booting up to their network may
very well be different than roaming into it after already being set for another.
(I assume giving up coffee would be out of the question. :-P) Good luck.
