Also, does the school require that you register your system on their network? Similar to how some ISP's requires the MAC address to the network device connecting to it your school may for security reasons have it setup so that not just any Joe can come in and plug into their network.

If your LAN card is installed. Try pinging your machine's local host. Go to Start > Run > type cmd
when the command prompt opens type ping localhost or ping 127.0.0.1.

Now that localhost is giving you a good reply, try pinging your gateway.
Go to Start > Run then type cmd
At the command prompt, type ipconfig /all and look for the gateway entry.
At the prompt, type ping your.gateway.here (ex. ping 192.168.1.1)
Let's see if your gateway gives you a positive reply. If it does, then your gateway is UP.
Next, ping your DNS and see if it's giving you a good reply. Let us know the result.
