Wifi Hotspot: 5 bars, Open, No internet

I live in a barracks on a naval station and I cant get internet (or even get to the screen that lets me buy passes). If I move all the way to the other end of building I can get to the passes easily but the moment i get near my room on the other end it says no internet is available.

 

Tried turning off my wifi after forgetting xfinitywifi for 10 mins and reconnecting and thats not working either. Any ideas/advice?

Sounds like you are just moving out of range. Perhaps a more robust antenna might give you enough signal to be functional in your room? Something like this might work for you: https://www.amazon.com/BrosTrend-1200Mbps-Wireless-Antennas-Raspbian/dp/B01IEU7UZ0/ref=sr_1_4?s=elec...
