“My computer is OK but I cannot connect to the network.”

  • Is everyone around you having trouble as well? Then it is probably a campus-wide problem and it will resolve itself in an hour or so.
  • Is it just your computer? If yes, then completely shut down and restart your system. Often that will clear the problem.
  • If you are connected to the wireless network, then plug your computer into the wall or vice versa if you are connected to the wall.
