use linksys wap to access free wifi sites?

I want to use Knoppix on a 700 mhz ibm thinkpad connected via eathernet cable to a Linksys wap54g to access wifi locations at travel centers.

I have it working on my home wlan. I can access my Linksys wrt54g wireless router. I use the wap in my motorhome and the wrt54g is connected to my desktop and an adsl modem. Works great.

Can anyone tell me how I must reconfigure the laptop when I pull in to a travel center that offers wifi. I will pay for a 30 min session to access email etc.

I know.... Just use a wireless pcmcia card and windows.. That works, but I have been in locations that have low rf signal strength. I am really just trying to boost the rf. (And use Linux!!!!!)
