The network I use might not be letting my smart tv connect, what do I do?

    I'm currently living in an apartment on my school's campus and I'm using their network for all my internet needs and such. One of my roommates recently bought a new Samsung Smart TV Model:pN59D8000F. The wireless here sucks so we've been hooking the ethernet up to the tv for internet access. It was working fine at first, but then all options on the tv requiring a network shut down. Now, when we first arrive at school our laptops are put into a remediation mode to make sure we have virus protection and all that good stuff, and I believe that might be what is happening with the tv's internet access. Not exactly sure, can anybody help and tell me what I should do?
    I would really appreciate it!
    TL;DR Tv is capable for internet access but network wont let it connect

    Contact the IT department for advice on whether the TV is allowed on their network and, if so, how to get it working.
