I received my school computer approx. 21/2 mos ago. I was not able to connect it to a router. I also bought a wireless connection (AT &T) card to use...still unsuccessful most of the time. I went to the community college, knowing they have Wi Fi...still unable to connect. I understand that I am no genius when it comes to computers. I need someone to discriptively assist me with this problem I am having. I would like to continue my online courses away from home at times, however it seems the computer will not connect to any services.
I am really fustrated because I have had this computer for approx. 3 months and have been unable to connect to the internet. The computer is also extremely slow. Any help in this manner would be greatly appreciated.
The only type of wireless connection card that AT&T sells is for mobile broadband. Mobile broadband costs $60/month. It is not WiFI. It should have come with software to let you connect you to the internet. I used to have this type of service. I suggest you take your laptop to an AT&T store and have them help you with this.
As for the WiFi at the local community college, it may be that it is for students only and requires username+password to log in. My local library has free WiFi, you might want to see if yours does too and see if some kind person there can help you.
