I have an open WiFi network that I use in my apartment (provided by my realtor). The network shows up on my phone's WiFi and works smoothly but doesn't show up on my laptop. I have Windows 7 and Linux Mint 16 installed on my laptop and the WiFi network doesn't show up on either. However, the WiFi network does show up on my roommate's Macbook Air.
Could this be a problem with my WiFi network card? Or could it be related to something else? I'm not really sure what to Google so I thought I'd post here.
