Windows 7: Problems with School Network.

Well you know what acurasd (or should it be read hondasd lol), i recon random internet dropouts can be anything from weak signal or issue with the driver. Usually if it's the case of not using the correct security setting for wireless connection (ie WEP or WPA) you'd be hard pressed to log in.

Perhaps ask one of the other school mates, if they have the same issue or not.

I had some issues with this in vista, none in 7, Thank god.
I was getting tired of the Reboot, But I think the Network dropped me cause of mass bandwidth consumption due to my vpn to my servers....
But if a stranger were to enter the school, and his machine isn't pre-configured, he wouldnt be able to log in cos his machine isn't seeing what's hidden.

Its just another layer of security...
Honestly they would be an idiot...
Tech school with 2 active hacking groups,
We have alot of fun messing with each other....

Part of it is they dont want strangers using the network.
We pay way to much for strangers to use our network

yeah i think that they would beon the same domain... then they would use their school id ad password to log into the domain to log in... there shoudln't be a reason to hide the ssid...

some students are not that smart to find a hidden network.

I have to keep showing my mom how to charge her iPod and this is the 6th time today... who knew plugging in the white wire ass end up would do it for her.


actually.... i nver thought of it that way...

but Acura is the car i drive and SD is san deigo is where i come from... clever huh *lol*

M university has a nice little pamphlet they give you telling you how to connect. and a little waiver you have to turn in to get access to the network :P

Feedback from some fellow Win 7 users are positive. They don't experience what i experience.

So is that something wrong with my adapter's compatibility?

It's frustrating... feel like going back to XP!!!

I truely don't think it's an OS issue, unless you install some antivirus software that restricted tou in connecting to your school's wifi. The other thing could be a VPN/third party software that your school is using. This may impact connections, as it may not be compatible with ipv6 (is that disabled?).
