Can't Connect to ASU Network via Airport???

Hi, I go to Arizona State University and they have their own wireless network. I was able to connect to it wirelessly totally fine when I first moved into my dorm. Then today when I came back to the campus it would let me connect but when I try to go to the internet it tells me "You are not connected to the internet." When I try to run the Network Diagnostics, it tells me it cannot find a PPPoE server. I can get on the internet with an ethernet cable but it just annoys me that the cable is just running across the room. What's wrong here?

Also, I have a D-Link router and was wondering if I can set up my own network for my room. There are two ethernet cables connected to the wall(1 for me, 1 for my roomate). Can this be done? Any insight would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks! :black:

You probably aren't supposed to be connecting via PPPoE. Go into Network Preferences and under the Airport set it to connect via DHCP.

You could easily set up the wireless network in your room but in most schools it is against policy and they will disable your internet as long as you have the router connected

Well it worked for a while but as soon after I woke my computer from sleep it wasn't working again. I looked in the network settings and it wasn't connecting with a PPPoE. don't know what to do now. Any suggestions?

I try running the network diagnostics but it doesn't help. The network status says "Connected to the network "ASU". AirPort assigned it's own IP address and may not be able to connect to the internet." The little light next to it is yellow instead of green.

Don't you have an IT department at your school? Maybe you can ask them to help you?
