The problem was apparently with the router in the hotel.  I should say
routers.  Some of them were not the hotel's and that is what threw me
off.  i went to another location and immediately was able to connect
to the router but what threw me off their was I was unable to connect
via an ethernet cable.  I think this was a problem with the cable or
the router is was plugged into.  Since this arrangement was made by
the internet guy at this location I trusted he was giving me a good
connection but now I doubt it.  I will go there tomorrow and check it

Anyway, thanks for the assistance!!!  I will keep this email for
future reference.
