Acer Aspire 5315 wont authenticate with IEEE 802.1x

Hi there. Cannot get my Acer Aspire 5315 to authenticate with my university ethernet. It will connect locally so i can check my university email, but will not connect to the world wide web. I took it to computer services and they said that the 'IEEE 802.1x authentication on ethernet interfaces wont authenticate and that there is no option to authenticate'. I dont really have much of a clue what this means and could really do with some advice. They had three experts working on my computer, and no one could find out what was wrong. There are no viruses, it wasn't restricted by security software and as far as they could see, there were no programs stopping it. Do you know what the problem could be?Thanks for any help you can give me,Liz x

Does the acer aspire z5700 desktop have a built in wifi router or do i need to purchase and set up a router to enable home sharing network?

While it doesn't have a built-in router, it DOES have a wireless adapter built in. So if you were to purchase your own router (or rent one from your ISP), the computer would work fine with it.

WIFi Connection

change channels to 1-6-or 11

check is to make sure you are NOT using "IEEE 802.1x authentication for this network."

You can find at setting under "Wireless Network Connection1.gif Properties" and then under "Authentication" tab of your network properties.

This particular authentication method is periodically logging you off the network and re-authenticating.

Check the adapter in device manager to make sure that windows is not shutting the adapter down to save power.

Cordless phones1.gif and wireless ethernet cards use overlapping frequencies.As a test, you can unplug the AC cords from all the cordless phones in the area and see if it helps.
