While they would probably frown if they knew you were doing this, there are a few wireless routers that are either battery powered or USB powered (either off the laptop or any of the usb battery packs out there) so you can just set your own network up on the go. Of course if you are on a plane with power ports it doesn't matter.

Not that I would ever recommend doing this , but if you set the network name to something everybody expects to see like Hhonors or the Free Wireless one, nobody will notice unless they are bright enough to notice it's not an adhoc one.

Windows 7 Starter Edition can not start an adhoc network, but it can join one.
