Problem with the network at school.

#1
Hey everybody.
I have a problem. When I'm at the school and I use the network there, then my computer doesn't work. Sometimes 5 minutes after I've joined the network, then it won't work I have to turn it off by pressing the button. It really anoys me, and I need internet.
The weird thing is that it works perfect at home, on my private network, but NOT at the school.
Any help?
Thanks

Sounds like the DHCP server isn't holding the IP address and maybe someone else is using the same IP causing it to drop you out

You don't say, what type of computer you are using, (laptop, desktop) you don't day what type of network you are using, (wired, wireless). Take a look at this article and see if it helps at all. You may experience connectivity issues or performance issues when you connect a mobile PC that is running Windows Vista or Windows 7 to a wireless access point

It's a Compaq laptop and the network is wireless.
