I am currently connected to a wireless networrk. What can the problem that I can connect to another server via Remote Desktop but I can't connect to the internet?
I usually go to a university library to work, so I use their wireless network for internet access.
The problem is that, even though I am connected to their wireless network, the internet doesn't work (ie. I can't do web browsing). On the other hand, my laptop is connected to a remote server via Remote Desktop, and the connection is quite fast. As a matter of fact, the only way I could post this question was to connect my laptop to my remote server (which has internet access) via Remote Desktop since my laptop cannot connect to EE.
What could the problem that I can connect to another server via Remote Desktop but I can't connect to the internet?
When I do the Windows Network Diagnostics, it tells me it doesn't find a problem. I have Windows 7 Ultimate 64bit. Everything works fine in my home wireless connection, so I know the laptop isn't the problem.
