I bought a Samsung 840 120gb ssd for my desktop and installed windows 7 on it. I installed the motherboard drivers and the drivers for the wireless adapter. When I try connecting to the internet it says windows cannot connect to network. I live on campus at school so the only internet available is the school wifi, no wired ethernet option. My wireless adapter is a tew-643pi. If i boot from my hdd and use my old windows installation I can connect to the network with no problems, its only when on my new windows installation on my ssd.

Since you are using school wifi...have you contacted school IT administration personnel about the change?

 

Wifi came along long after my collegiate days :) but I suspect that the school may have instituted measures to ensure that only approved students have access...as opposed to anyone just passing by or in the area.  In any case, it won't hurt to ask and the personnel there exist to see to it that students have needed accomodations to the administered network.

You need to contact IT for your school.  Most likely they are using a domain, to protect their LAN, from those who should not be on it.  Again, you need to talk to your IT group for your school, not some strangers on a Internet board.  We cannot fix your problem.

Anyways, I just went ahead and cloned my OS partition and migrated it over to my SSD and everything is working just fine.
