Usually, in a school, even to access wireless, it is going to require an encrypted password. If you have "SO CALLED HACKERS" in your school saying they have penetrated the system, they are probably just all talk. I wouldn't be too concerned with your "IP Address" because it will be assigned a new one upon connection to the wireless system at school. The main number to be concerned with would be your MAC address which is harder to retrieve than any temporary IP.

Hello, You won't need to do anything. When the connection is made from your laptop to the wireless signal at school, an IP address will be assigned dynamically(automatically). Just turn it on and if it doesn't connect within 20-30 seconds, click start, control panel and then network connections. Follow directions and it will connect for you. Hope this helps, Good luck..

Acer Aspire 5733 Wireless connection lost


Check the wireless router and high-speed modem.

If the two are not powered on, or if the Ethernet cable connected the two is not completely inserted into both connection ports, you are unable to access the Internet on the Acer Aspire One laptop computer.


Activate the wireless Internet connection on the laptop computer.

Right-click the wireless icon on the desktop, then choose "Enable" from the pop-up menu.


Without activating the wireless receiver on the Acer Aspire One, the laptop is unable to detect any wireless network.


Select the appropriate network you wish to connect to.


Your computer may be attempting to connect to a different Internet connection, preventing you from access the network you desire. Right-click the wireless icon, select "Search for available wireless networks," then choose the network you want to access.


Restart the computer.


The system may have booted and failed to detect the wireless receiver. Restarting the computer corrects this issue.


hope this helps

CANNOT LOAD WIRELESS INTERNET


First you have to have the right equipment both the wireless modem or router and the hubs USB or other wise the adapters. Then you have to know the password key for your wireless connection. If you do not have one it is suggested you provide one to protect your privacy and keep others from draining your connection. "Private Network Important" Any machines you are allowing to join the network have to log in using the same WAP credentials or log in information. Once this is established you will be able to access your wireless connection with any computer that comes in to play using your connection. So make sure these are perfectly correct. Other than this contact your provider for assistance. I know that can be a pain since support these days are confined to high school or overseas folks answering questions.
Start with the main computer first. Set information up just the first and main machine. Then configure the rest of your devices with the same information you worked out with the main it has to be exact. I hope that you get this solved it can be frustrating. John

    Wireless connection problem


    BT is right, the fault is at your end, because you can connect to the Internet with an ethernet cable.
    You have lost your wireless connection with the wireless hub.
    This could be low signal strength (especially if the wireless access point is in one part of the house and your laptop is in another room)
    OR Your laptop wireless card has lost its wireless access configuration.
    Check your laptop wireless configuration, check your signal strength, check your SSID, check your security (WEP or WAP),
    Have you got MAC address filtering.
    Go to control panel, click on network connections, right click on Wireless Network, Click on repair (might fix your connection problem), Else right click on Status (should give you indication of how your wireless is functioning or not functioning).
    Check your TCP/IP settings is set for "Obtain an IP address automatically"
    Without more information it is difficult to identify exactly what is wrong with your connection.

    Trouble with wireless card


    Something has gone wrong with your internet home connection--obviously nothing is the matter with your wireless connectivity hardware. You should reconfigure your home wireless connection. Follow the directions in Vista or XP help to set up a new home wireless connection. There are various ways to do this, such as through a router. If you have a home wireless router, be sure to set it for WEP incryption, or your neighbors will be able to get on your internet free.
