Open a (black) Command Prompt window:
Hold the Windows logo key and press r; in the Run box type cmd and click on OK.

Type the following command:

IPCONFIG /ALL

[Note that there is no space between the slash and ALL.]

[Press ENTER after each command.]

Right click in the command window and choose Select All, then hit Enter.
Paste the results in a message here.

If necessary use a text file and removable media to copy the results to a computer with internet access.

Can you detect your network? If so, what exactly happens when you try to connect?

I can detect the network i click on it it asks me for the password i put it in it is definitely correct it tries to connect for a bit and then says that it couldnt connect to network when i trouble shoot the problem it goes through resetting my my adapter then asks me to reset the router i do that and it says that the problem with the router is not fixed but it cannot be the router because i have a bunch of other devices that are capable of connecting and accessing the internet.

Disable encryption on the router and try to connect. If successful you can probably re-enable encryption and reconnect.

I talked to an IT guy briefly and informally who knows a bit about the connection system and he said that it shouldnt be encrypted because i didnt know how to disable encryption. So it shouldnt be that it is encrypted but if it is how would i do that because i do not know how..

Login to the router, preferably with an ethernet connection, navigate to the wireless section and change the Encryption (or Security) Mode to 'none' or 'off' or similar. To re-enable you do the same thing except set the Mode to whatever it is now.

I live in a school sanctioned apt where they set up the wifi for us and we do not have the login and password for my router im assuming this is the only way but if you know anything else i can try while in pursuit of the login information that would be great.

It's not clear from the symptoms what is wrong. The encryption disable/re-enable is something that sometimes fixes, and is usually quick and easy to try, but is no guarantee. Let's look for some more possibilities ...

Do you have a Belkin utility running to try to manage the wireless? If so, disable or uninstall it and try with Windows only.

What firewall or security suite is, or ever was, on the system?

TCP/IP stack repair options for use with Vista through 10.

Start - All Programs - Accessories and right click on Command Prompt, select "Run as Administrator" to open a command prompt. [For Windows 8 thru 10: <Windows Logo> + x - Command Prompt(Admin)]

Reset WINSOCK entries to installation defaults: netsh winsock reset catalog

Reset IPv4 TCP/IP stack to installation defaults. netsh int ipv4 reset reset.log

Reset IPv6 TCP/IP stack to installation defaults. netsh int ipv6 reset reset.log

Reboot the machine after all three commands; no need to boot after the 1st and 2nd.
