I went in yesterday and took the ethernet cable out of the back of one of the pcs to connect my laptop(as that way I dont log in and so my allowance isnt used lol)
Didnt get a chance to reconnect cable at end as library closed and came in 20 minutes ago to find pc switched off(wasnt using it anyway) I asked the staff and they said it wasnt connecting to the network and they werent sure what was wrong.
The ethernet cable was right where I left it!
And the 2 main IT tech guys for the uni didnt know what was wrong either I connected the cable and it worked.
Great IT staff eh!
