    My son is living in the dorms at college and has a laptop with windows 7. He was able to simply join the network after seeing the schools wireless connection. However, he was unsure which choice would be his best for security: I think the choices he said he was given was: "Home", "Work" and "Public". He can connect through all three but wants the safest one so he doesn't leave his computer open for others to get into.
