Good grief, now i'm having problems connecting to the wireless at school too which I have never had issues with. Whenever I am in range of the university wireless system, my work laptop automatically connects to the wireless. I have no problems with that. I am getting an excellent signal. However, to get on the internet, you have to "authenticate" using some little applet they created which asks you to sign in using your school id and password. Once you are authenticated, you then open up the internet in a new browser window. Does anyone here have experience with a system like this? I'm getting an error when I try to authenticate saying "Access restricted. Contact system administrator. Server logout." Argh. The last thing I want to do is take the laptop to the system administrator because I will probably not see it again for weeks. HELP.
Oh yea. It's a Dell Lattitude running windows xp. I use IE7 to authenticate and firefox to browse the web. (well.... I did anyway)
