Last night I was using the wireless connection at my university just fine. Then, I left the lounge where I was working, went back to my dorm room,and tried to connect again...and couldn't. I went to sleep, figuring it would work the next morning. It doesn't. I can connect to the ethernet in my room, so it's not a huge deal, but at home I only have a wireless connection.

details:
I am on a large college network
I can still connect via ethernet cable
I can see that there are at least 4 wireless networks I should be able to connect to.
I tried rebooting my computer

(also I am not the most tech-savvy person out there.)

Welcome to WebmasterWorld lnorment.

Without more technical details it would be really hard to say. Have you tried contacting your local system administrator? It could be a number of network specific issues that nobody here could answer.

Make sure you are deliberately selecting the network you want; and also make sure you are in Managed mode.
