cannot connect to WiFi

I often stay in hotels for work and almost always have this problem. Both my phone and computer can access the internet without any trouble whatsoever. However, when i try to connect my xbox it will not connect to xbox live. I believe it has something to do with the fact that my xbox does not prompt me to input the access code for the wireless network. Is there any way to enter the code?

ps   i have tried connecting another device first, as it will solve the problem maybe 20% of the time.

1) Collect the MAC address of your console, tape it to the console, and ask the hotel to 'whitelist' it so i doesn't ask for that access code for you.

2) Use ICS and connect through a laptop - see support.microsoft.com/.../978618

Both work wired as well as wireless in case you land in a hotel w/out WiFi
