Getting onto the internet is not done by hooking up to another computer. Tell us more about your network - does it use a router for example?

EDIT
Err...I'd assumed you meant your office (room) at home.

Always pop back and let us know the outcome - thanks

If there is any type of IT staff then ALWAYS go through them. This gives the company more security and insures you do no harm to the network. If the company uses a Wifi then you need only the proper log in and log in key (often called password). If not then you need a free network port and your laptop to be granted network access. You may get internet without full network access once plugged in but it depends on the network.

You have to be a little bit crazy to keep you from going insane.
