Let's start at the beginning.   Build 150 ?
Does the server see the Active Antenna ?   (ifconfig or iwconfig  
should help)

Eventually, there should be steps at:
to walk you through this process.   Unfortunately, between  
development and support
there isn't much time to update the Wiki....

How many laptops are you trying to connect to it ?

This not a configuration issue that would cause the problems you are  
That issue refers to the IP address supplied as the school when

nameserver --- it might stop laptops at home/internet cafe from  
seeing the schoolserver,
but shouldn't affect access inside a home.
