    Hi! Excuse my terrible explanation in advance, I know nothing about IT.

    I can't connect my laptop to my school wifi system, but I found that using someone's mobile hotspot to that wifi works for me. So I figured that I could somehow use a wifi extender/bridge thingy to connect myself to the system? Like System --> ethernet to the wifi extender -- > my laptop. I do know how to connect it to a normal private wifi network, but not my school one cuz it needs my username and password. So...

    Is this even possible? How can I make my wifi extender device do THE THING?

    Thanks, any help is appreciated!

    It's only a lucky break for you, that you found that hotspot connected to the wifi. You could try accessing the router, but you're properly without luck.
    As I understand it, you want to connect an extender to the network, yes? - it will need some kind of access, and if you don't have that then what to do?... :)

    Obviously you need the help of the school IT department or a teacher. Closing, as we cannot help you with your username/password.
