Windows 7: Public Wi-Fi Issue?

Public Wi-Fi Issue?

I have Windows 7 home and have run into a bit of an issue. I have a program on my computer that runs through the internet. At my home, it connects find and I am able to run it without any issues, but I go to school and connect to their Wi-Fi and it stalls on the connecting prompt. Everything else I run and the internet works fine, I have re-installed the program and made sure it wasn't blocked from public access on firewall.

Any solutions/possibilites are greatly appreciated.

noob, welcome to sevenforums

This will have to do with the school's network. Likely they set it up this way so that students couldn't do various things that they might not want them doing. For example, you can block live radio streaming so as to save bandwidth, while still allowing youtube videos, etc.

Contact your network administrator or school official to find out more
