    Hi Gorship,

    This is definitely a question for your University tech staff. If it is an ethernet port, and it was connected properly to the University network, you should be able to make a connection.

    But it might just be a disconnected leftover of your University's pre-wireless days . . .

    Have you checked in your computer for the wireless adapter.. Please check wther the wireless adapter is installed or not. Because the ethernet port is slot where you can make a connection.

    Go to network connection, check is tehre any icon called Wireless network connection is available or not.

    If not there is problem in the computer.
