    How close are you to the routers? Sometimes I'll get false-positive when I'm too far away from a router, where it will say that I can connect but I'm not actually getting a signal.

    The only other thing that I can think of is a MAC address filter, but your network admin should know if there is one in place.

    Yall all wrong, most schools have WEP security on there router,and dont except outside partys, they can set limit to the amount of computers the router can support, either way,for all that, just go to star bucks, just playin figure out the school's phone number, thats usually the password

    Yeah, they're probably using a MAC filter just to get people's hopes up by making them think they can get free Wifi when they really can't. Heh.

    my school router isnt protected, byt the school dont have port 80 open so i can do anything pretty much e.g. maps, youtube etc.
