While you are looking at your wireless networks, remove any old UNB networks to prevent your computer from trying to automatically connect to them.If you see any of the following networks, highlight them and select Remove: If you are having difficulty getting connected on Windows 7 and have previously been connected at UNB, check to see if you have the program Secure W2 installed.I am now trying to connect a friend's laptop, it is an ageing Toshiba Satellite M70-215 and from what I have been able to gather it is running Service Pack 2 and has only 512 MB RAM. First of all I tried to connect using the built-in wireless, even after updating the driver, no network is found.
Please note that these instructions assume an active IT account.
I then tried installing the supplied Sitecom N adapter, after some problems the network appears but I can't connect, I am told "Windows was unable to find a certificate to log you onto the network" I read several threads that led me to uncheck "Enable IEEE 802.1x authentication for this network" and I actually managed to enter the WPA2 code but this just leads to the message "This connection has limited or no connectivity" and "validating identity".
In any event I am finding that after rebooting the WPA2 code is no longer there and it has reverted back to Open WEP.
If any of the details in your wifi profile are incorrect then your authentication will fail and you will not gain wifi access via eduroam.
PEAP provides more security in authentication for 802.11 wireless local area networks that support 802.1X port access control.
If you are having difficulty getting your Windows 8 machine to connect, try setting up a manual connection.
