Yeah I found same unsecure wireless network of sheraton hotel and HO sh-e-faisal but not able to connect.

They're most probably secured by MAC address white-listing - that's why you could see it as unsecure but couldn't log in.

I am not sure to ask but can i get through that network or not . Actually i am not asking the way to crack but want to know the possibility of doing so.

Speaking of unsecured networks... there's one near my house... I can connect to it but it says 'limited or no connectivity" ... any clues on why this happens?

This sometimes happens when there is an IP address conflict too. Try defining your IP address manually and in addition to that try connecting with subnet masks as 255.255.255.0 and then 255.255.252.0 as they are the most typical ones.

^ i wud disagree when there is an ip address conflict windows specifically states that there is an ip address conflict

the problem NoyaBiz is having is because his NIC has not received an ip address this may be coz the dhcp server in the router is off
