    Have you tried pulling up safari while on that network? You don't say there's a login. Sometimes they won't pop up. After checking the wifi settings, or manually joining, I was told to pull up safari when joining the network at our school. It worked ever since. Thanks to folks here in the forums.

    Well you said that others join fine and you can't. I don't know of a setting like that on a router unless it is approved by macaddress or timed access. Like I said, I tried this opening safari recommend and it helped me login. I had to wait a bit but it came on after pulling safari. If its a login, you just need the network ID and password in your wifi settings.

    Ask the IT tech at work to reset the router, it may solve the problem.
