    Reinstall drivers and all that crap- make sure you uninstall them in safe mode first.

    If that doesn't work, I'll bet the network port on your laptop's motherboard failed. I've seen it happen a LOT in Dell laptops lately. :(

    Try removing your networking connection and then reinstalling it.

    if its seeing the line is there but won't connect, chances are your proxy settings or dhcp is screwed up.

    consult with you rit dept at your school to what they should be, and then, in your connection manager, make the adjustments you need
