Using AIP-EMP with Windows 7

Here we describe how you have to configure your computer to use our Wireless LAN.

- Most settings are the same on Windows Vista, other may be missing. Still, it should work with a current Windows Vista installation. -

 

In order to use Wireless-LAN at the AIP, you need a W-LAN-card that supports WPA2-Enterprise. Also, you need a Windows-Account (and need to request W-LAN-rights if not already done).

 

If you have all that, start the "Network and Sharing Center" (System control). Open the Link "Manage Wireless networks" on the left. Now press "Add" on the left. A Configuration wizard opens.

 

Choose "Create a network profile manually". Enter "AIP-EMP" into the field "Network Name" and choose "WPA2-Enterprise" as "security type". Please choose "AES" as encryption type and remove the tick for "Start this connection automatically". Continue with "Next".

 

If everything was successful, please click on "Change connection properties" inside the wizard window. If you want to connect automatically to the W-LAN, tick "Connect automatically when Network is in range". Now change into the tab "Security".

 

Click on "Settings" in the middle and remove the tick for "Check server certificate". On the middle, press "Configure..." and remove the tick inside the new window and accept with "OK". Click "OK", again. Click at "Advanced settings" on the bottom.

 

Set the tick for "Specify authentication mode" and choose "User authentication" within the Drop-Down-Menu. You can save your Windows-Credentials here, if you want to. Change to the tab "802.11 settings" and set a tick for "Network uses pre-authentication". Press "OK" two times and close the wizard with "Close".

 

If you didn't save your credentials, Windows will now ask you for your login credentials. Sometimes it happens, that you need to authenticate yourself twice.
