Netbook connects at home but not at work?


I have searched the forums to find an answer but have had no luck....

I have a HP netbook that connects fine wirelessly at home but when I try to connect at work I get a message saying "invalid ip configuration"

I have used the internet connection before but this has only just started happening and other people can log on including smart phones

I haven't really tried anything yet so all advice appreciated

best talk to the company's admin. He would know best what's different between your home net and the one at work.
Probably just the security settings
