    You should whether the wireless switch off is turned on or not. If so then make it to on.Make sure that you are not far away from the Wi-Fi point. Check the college Wi-Fi is turned On or not.If the access point is too busy then you won’t get the access on it. The access point do not have any network name so you won’t get any name to connect.So take these steps to connect manually with the network,Go to Start->Control panel. In the search box,type wireless then click Manage wireless Networks. Then click add and select Manually create a network profile.Type the Service Set Identifier(SSID) of the network and click next. Select ‘Connect even if the network is not broadcasting’ check box.Finally click next then close.

    First of all check whether your laptop's wi-fi is switched on.
    Then you should in range of router installed in your campus of your college.
    If your laptop detects the network then connect to it.
    If it has password then you can ask your seniors or the faculty of your college about it.
    It may be possible that it has some proxy settings, so you can ask that too.
    Then enter the proxy and the password and enjoy the internet..
