Logging onto laptop from home

I use a C2k laptop when I am in school, but when I take it home I am unable to access the internet even though I have connected to my home wi-fi. Why is this?

The most likely reason for this is to do with the way the computer is connecting to the internet. By default the laptop is set up to access the C2k network. When you are outside school, you will need to change those settings. To do this, click on the Tools icon (the cog in the top-right corner and select Internet Options. In the window that appears click on the Connections tab and then click the LAN settings button.

In the Local Area Network (LAN) Settings window, under Proxy Server, the box to “Use a proxy server” will be selected. De-select this then click OK and OK again in the Internet Options window. The windows will close and internet access on a non-C2k network should now be enabled.
