Latitude Not Accessing Free Internet But Ipod Is

and so is iPad. So why can't my Dell Latitude access the free WiFi services? It's showing a list of wifi connections but not the free wifi that both my ipad and ipod can access - in this case it's Free Bezeq.

Can I get a city and state out of a list of latitude/longitude pairs?

I've found a lot of folks that promise the opposite. What I want to do is take a csv of lat/long pairs and get back something pairing them with the corresponding city and state. (I'd even take zip codes if it came to that bit that would be somewhat less useful). Is this something easily done?

Longitude Latitude Database

A few years ago I had bookmarked a website that had a very plain search feature that allowed you to search names of all sorts of geographical whathaveyou and gave a table complete with longitude and latitude coordinates. I believe this site was US-centric (might have been USGS but I looked and failed) although it was possible to search for anything, world-wide. Ring any bells?
