Default wireless internet

Hi, i have a samsung M40 17" and it has wireless internet, it connects fine while i am at home and connecting to the network, which does not require a password, but as soon as i go to school to try to connect to the wireless network there, which does require a password i cannot connect, i have tried internet explorer and firefox, neither can connect. the settings for the server are correct, the name and port, and i have copied it directly into the box from another computer that does connect, so that is not the problem. i have just had to re-install windows completley could this have anything to do with the problem, i have reinstalled all software and drivers, is there any settings that allow it to display messages? Please help

Thanks for any help

Mark

you'll need the WEP password. Ask your school admins. And at home you should have a password on it, or youll be the local spot for geeks to park outside your house!
