    I was just wondering if anybody has any suggestions to resolve this problem. I have been having trouble accessing my school's website while on campus. I can access all other websites when I am connected to the school's wifi but for some reason the school's website will not load. I have tried this on all of my browsers, Safari, Chrome and Firefox with the same results. I have checked my network settings and preferences in each browser and I can not come up with a solution to this.

    Have I overlooked anything?

    Depends. Are you on as a student/facility or on their Public Wi-Fi?

    I am a student on the public wifi. In order to access the school's wifi, I need to add my student ID# and my password to access it. What baffles me is all other websites seem to work fine while connected to it. When I am at home I have no problems at all accessing the school's website.:confused:

    Have you asked any of your fellow students if they have similar issues?

    That is because the School made a wiki page (private page) that is only visible to those on the student Wi-Fi! I bet if you ask another on the public Wi-Fi they will see that same restriction as you do.
