    so my school has a large wifi network on campus, yay. But I can't seem to use it. I have a wifi card made by microsoft. What happens is 99.9% of the time I try to connect to it I connect and siginal strength is "very good" or "excellent" but I windows fails to renew my IP address. I try to repair the connection a million time but it doesn't work still. It's only worked 3 times so far. Everyone else around me with a laptop can connect to the network no problem. I tried repairing the connection with no luck. I went to the command prompt and typed

    ipconfig /release
    ipconfig /flushdns
    ipconfig /renew

    and /renew fails.

    I tried WindowsXP Sock Fix. Still nothing.
    I went down to my school's "computer help desk" and wouldn't you know that it worked when I was down there so they couldn't help me, but the second I leave it doesn't work. Great, I don't really wanna stand around the computer help desk to use wifi. I think this world doesn't want me to use wifi..... any help would be appriciated. Thanks.
