EUI-Guest Configuration for MS Windows Vista
The guide below has been tested on MS Windows Vista Home Basic, Home Premium and Business. Screenshots are taken from Vista Business thus may slightly differ from other versions.
- You must have full Administrator rights on Windows.
- Proper drivers for your wireless network card must already be installed. Windows Vista has a huge list of built-in drivers but if there is none suitable for your card, you should refer to your card vendor's Web site and download the proper one. Advice on installing and setting up your network card can be provided by Portable Device Support.
- MS Windows Vista Service Pack 1 (SP1) should be installed (refer to Microsoft Windows Update for more information).
- Your network card must be enabled and turned on (depending on the make, either via hardware or software switch).
- Go to any place covered by the EUI wireless network;
- As soon as Vista finds the EUI-Guest network (check for a ballon in the tray bar), click on the balloon in order to start the configuration wizard ;
- The Connect to a network window will show up with a list of available networks: select EUI-Guest in the Wireless Network Connection section, then click on the Connect button;
- Open your default web browser at the URL http://www.eui.eu. You will receive the following Authentication screen: authenticate with the username and password provided on your personal EUI Guest Receipt:

- Once access is granted, the yellow alert triangle will disappear from the WiFi icon in the traybar and the Acceptable Use Policy (AUP) will be displayed inside your browser.

Your device will automatically connect to the network whenever it is in range and your wireless card is enabled and turned on.
