EUI-WiFi Configuration for MS Windows 7 (Automatic)

 

The below guide has been tested on MS Windows 7 Professional with Service Pack (SP1) and is based on Windows' default wireless configuration tool (Wireless Zero Configuration ).

Screenshots are taken from Professional version thus may slightly differ from other versions (e.g. Home Premium, etc.).

Please Note: if the below procedure fails (e.g. on Home Premium, etc.), try the manual configuration instead.

 

Pre-requisites

  • You must have full Administrator rights on Windows;
  • Proper drivers for your wireless network card must already be installed. Windows 7 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;
  • Latest Update for Root Certificates must be installed (check Windows Update  for more info);
  • Your computer must be configured according to Network Connection Configuration instructions;
  • 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. Click on the Wireless Connection icon in the tray bar (usually bottom right corner) of the desktop: a list of available WiFi networks will show up.
  3. Select EUI-WiFi, tick “Connect automatically” (to connect automatically in future) and then click on Connect to proceed.
  4. You will be asked for your credentials. Put your username in the format:

    iuedom\your_EUI_username (for example iuedom\jsmith)

    Please Note: if you are unable to log in try ONLY the username (without iuedom).

You now have successfully configured Windows 7 to connect to EUI-WiFi.

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