EUI-Guest Configuration for MS Windows XP

 

The below guide has been tested on MS Windows XP Professional and is based on Windows' default wireless configuration tool (Wireless Zero Configuration).
Screenshots are taken from XP Professional thus may slightly differ from other versions (XP Home Edition, etc.).

 

 

Pre-requisites

  • Proper drivers for your wireless network card must already be installed. Windows XP 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 XP Professional Service Pack 3 (SP3) must 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).

 

Procedure

  1. Go to any area at the EUI covered by WiFi;
  2. Right-click on the Wireless Connection icon in the tray bar (usually bottom right corner) of the desktop [1] and select View Available Wireless Networks:

  6. Once acess is granted, the Acceptable Use Policy (AUP) will be displayed inside your browser.

 

You have now succesfully configured Windows XP to connect to EUI-Guest.

Your device will automatically connect to EUI-Guest whenever it is in range and your wireless card is enabled and turned on.

 

 

 

 

 

[1] = If the Wireless Network Connection icon is not present, this may be due to the wireless network manager of your vendor's card taking over from Windows' Wireless Zero Configuration tool. Please refer to the documentation of your vendor's card in order to turn it off as this may interfere with the procedure here documented.

[2] = If EUI-Guest network does not show up, click on Refresh network list.
