    hmm, sometimes at my school they are weak because of the cinder blocks I guess. And sometimes I have had the signal read string when it is really weak, maby a combination of both?

    They are probaly allowing only certain MAC adresses to connect to the network, either that or WPA or WEP security.

    It probably is a MAC address thing, but you could try the DNS fix (set the DNS to the same thing as router).

    I noticed this when I was going to get my braces tightened, and I took my ipod just to see if there would be any connections, and there was a lot and when i clicked them, it would show all bars lit but it wouldnt be connected. i can connect to my schools wifi perfectly wherever i am on campus.

    Try the DNS fix I mentioned.
