Hello everybody,

I got a problem with my internet connection.
The problem is, I don't have any connection at home, so I'm using the university's wireless ('cause I'm living next door).

:flowers:

At around 1 a.m., the internet connection turns off, and it says it's because of a "DNS problem".
What can I do to solve this problem? Don't forget, it's not my connection!
I would like to watch a hockey game tonight, you're my last hope :thumbsup:
Please, help me.

Thank you in advance.

Get your own connection, or enroll as a student so you can use their wireless.

I`m a bit surprised they run an open network. May be intended for ease of use by students. Unless it is advertised as a public hot-spot then do as Cryptodan stated.

It does sound as though they shut it down at a certain time.

So, other comment?

Then talk with your Schools IT Department and ask them what the issue is.

I think you need to take it up with your provider...that being the Univeersity, I see little reason for your posing your question.

<<At around 1 a.m., the internet connection turns off, and it says it's because of a "DNS problem". What can I do to solve this problem?>>

Nothing...get a non-university connection, as suggested.

No transmission...no reception by anyone...seems simple enough to me.

Ok thanks.
The problem is that it's difficult to get a connection.
A technician needs to activate the phone line first.

You know, I'm here in Germany and the technician comes only in two weeks :thumbsup:
So I thought it would be easier to use the university's connection during those two weeks. But it's ok if there is no solution to my problem.

There very well may be a solution. But please understand the circumstances involved, both legally as well as morally. That is why no one at BC will be able to assist you.
The best advice has already been given that we are able to give. Contact the IT Dept.

Sure, I understand.
I guess the university turns the internet off, so I will wait for two weeks.
Thanks.
