Ask the school's IT people. Surely they run into this problem on an almost daily basis and can fix it in a couple of minutes.
Take your laptop in when you have a break between classes or some other time when the office is open. If there's not a line, my guess would be a half hour tops to get this fixed based on a couple months I spent working just such a job.
Hello I am having trouble connecting my laptop to the wireless network at my school. I am using a HP Pavilion dv6000 with Windows Vista Home Premium. I have the SSID (Network name) and password however it cannot discover the network. Plus, when I try to connect manually it says I have limited connection. It is making my really frustrated because my friends can connect their Ipods/IPhones and their HP laptops to the network but I cannot do the same. Do I need to update the drivers? If not then, what should I do to be able to connect to the Wireless Network?
*Note I am currently trying to find the name of the wireless adapter of this laptop. But if anybody knows please let me know. Thanks
