    sounds like everything you have done is fine - i bet its down to the signal strength seeing as your laptop is showing that message.

    you could always testing it by getting closer to the router somehow and seeing if it works. Another thing you could try is turning off 'mobile network' in the wireless & networks setting as this may be causing the wifi to select the stronger g or 3g network instead of wifi. also check out the advanced settings in the wifi section. may help.

    if its not down to the signal then my bet would be the configuration of the router - but that would mean logging on to their router and i don't know if thats feasible?!?!

    anyway good luck with it
