You really don't provide enough detail for anyone to give you any real help, here's a few questions for you to answer which might help narrow down the problem:

Are you getting a good strong signal at work?
Is the work network encrypted in some way?
Are you getting any connection at all? Can you browse websites?

What exactly do you mean by "hard time getting it through"?

Can other people at your work connect to the wifi?
