if you can see the network resources, the problem might be in the browser. check to see how your laptop's browser is configured under "internet option". copy the same configuration for the desktop browser.

So, you have the login and you were able to successfully log into the school?s wireless network, correct?

Chances are, if it?s anything like the wireless at my old university, you have to register with the service before your computer is recognized and able to use the internet. Try checking out things with your uni IT department and see if that?s the case.
