There are a couple of reasons for this. You might have saved ou-wifi in your settings to automatically connect to this access point. This will need to be removed. Also you might have some software preventing you from connecting correctly. An example of this is the Intel pro-set wireless manager utility.
On some laptops, an Intel pro-set wireless manager utility will be installed to manage your wireless. If your computer has this utility, and you are trying to connect to the Oakwood ou-wifi network, you will need to disable this. To do this, follow the instructions provided.

A computer network like Oakwood University’s is a powerful tool, for both recreational and non-recreational applications. For the purposes of this document, all recreational uses of the network, including but not limited to network strategy games, action games, MUDs, and chat programs, are described as "games".
In general, most games are permitted on the Oakwood University network. Games played on the network must comply with the same rules as all other network applications and must pose no risk of interference with other network operations. They must also comply with all other Oakwood University policies, including ethics policies.
Non-game network traffic has priority at all times. Games that interfere with non-game traffic, even if run within network bandwidth limitations, are prohibited from the Oakwood University network.
Some games are banned from the Oakwood University network because they have already been found to interfere with network operations.
In the event of a conflict between this policy and the policies of individual offices, labs, and computing facilities on campus, the most restrictive takes precedence. For example, if a lab says, "no games", no games are allowed in that lab.
