Because of your antivirus that's why you cannot connect to internet, you need to turn off McAfee antivirus.I mean you have to turn off McAfee's firewall so that it will not block your internet connections or WiFi connections.

You should do some adjustment on your McAfee antivirus, one is you need to check your date and settings of your computer so that it will not show that the antivirus is expired or something like that.If you have done all the necessary adjustment then it is still the same or nothing happens, you can always look for a new antivirus that will not blocked your internet connections.

The simple solution is to uninstall McAfee antivirus and replace it with other better antivirus products. For now if you can be able to turned off up the McAfee firewall just turned it off and everything will be access on your computer.But make sure to scan your computer so that you can still guard your computer system for malicious email,spyware and viruses.

If you cannot connect your laptop to your school’s Wi-Fi network, I don’t think the problem is with your McAfee antivirus because it is not designed to block internet connection in the first place. Its main function is to track the activities of files and processes on your computer.

Also, even if the one you are using has a built-in personal firewall like most internet security applications have, it will still not prevent the computer from connecting to a network like a Wi-Fi. If you cannot connect to your school’s Wi-Fi, make sure you provide the correct and exact password and SSID of the Wi-Fi network.

Every Wi-Fi network is secured with a password not unless it is a public Wi-Fi then there’s no need for a password. Also, if the SSID or the name of the Wi-Fi is hidden, it would be useless even if you know the password because you need to know both.

I guess if you want to connect to your school’s Wi-Fi, better ask your network administrator for the SSID and the password.
