Hi, it could be the router wasn't on when you tried to connect. Try it again and if still no connection then if halls ask the staff or if private ask the landlord. You could also ask if anyone else in your accommodation has the same problem. If they are OK then try their laptop in your connection and your laptop in theirs. Basically reduce the scope of the problem so that you can say where the problem is. 10 seconds might be a bit quick to connect, give it a minute at least, but usually a little light flashes in the port if there is a connection.
