In order to allow a system to connect to the 'uabhs' secure wireless network, a request for the system's access must be placed with HSIS & the system must be approved for this access. Once it's approved, the user of the system in question will receive a username & password to use to connect to uabhs. However, before authentication can take place the following steps must be followed to manually create a wireless network profile to access uabhs. If the network profile isn't created, the user will receive a 'cannot connect to uabhs' error (no password/passcode prompt will arrive) when trying to access the uabhs SSID. Follow these steps to create the profile:
- Open Network and Sharing Center
- Click on the "Manage Wireless Networks" link at the upper-left.
- Click the Add button at the upper-left.
- Choose "Manually create a network profile."
- Enter the following settings. Network name: uabhs (THIS IS CASE SENSITIVE), Security Type: WPA2-Enterprise
- Leave the rest of the settings at their defaults & click Next.
- Allow the profile to be created & then choose the "Change Connection Settings" prompt that appears.
- Click the Security tab & select the Settings button.
- Uncheck the "Validate Server Certificate" checkbox.
- Select the Configure button.
- Uncheck the "Automatically use my Windows logon name and password" checkbox & click Ok.
- Select the Advanced Settings button.
- Check the "Specify authentication mode" checkbox, & select "User authentication" in the drop-down menu.
- Click on the Save Credentials button & enter the username & password received from HSIS for the uabhs network & click Ok.
- Click Ok to close the remaining windows & then click Close to close the final window.
- The system should then automatically connect to the uabhs wireless network.
