You told me before all settings in ipconfig are the same on sick and working machine. You can ping 192.168.3.3 but I think it's just a Fordwarding DNS-server. It forwards the requests to a server you cannot reach!

When did problems start? Did it work last week for example?
After problems started... were you still able to use another accesspoint.... at home for example?

i just opened school this week, at home i usuallu use a broadband modem, this is the first time i'm connecting using wireless...that's why i'm thinking it has to do with something else in my laptop. i can connect to the network, i can see the signals and all that, but on connecting it shows no internet connection, and on troubleshooting it says dns server not responding! i've tried so many tricks i've seen around but to no avail. what outside the box method can i use?

So at home everything still works (test later at home). Although it's wired it doesn't matter. It proves. DHCP and DNS works fine.

Also try to cannot wireless somewhere else, at neighbors for example. Post results later please.

For now Troubleshoot Application Conflicts by Performing a Clean Startup

Does it connect to internet if booted clean?

Put it back to "normal" using msconfig. Go read a book for a while ;-) and test at home

I've used the broadcom utility and it says the driver installation wasn't ok. The driver path leads to a system file athr.sys which on looking at the details, shows it's an atheros installation device. Could it be causing the broadcom adapter and driver issues?

you can ping 192.168.3.3 so tcp/ip works. So drivers works. Don't know yet what problem is! But sure... it's not a DNS error at all. You cannot reach 173.194.78.104
And also cannot reach dns server.

Something in building is blocking your laptop? Anyone can use the wireless network automatically? Or do you need to authenticate? Or can anyone walk in building and use it?

Try at friends home (using cable and using wireless). Connected with cable always works?

Can you ping default gateway? tracert 173.194.66.94
