Re: Wireless access problems
"Only possible" == "We only have setup instructions for"
I'm assuming they're using WPA with a RADIUS server, authenticating your
student username & password for connection? If so, that's listed as
WPA-Enterprise in Vista.
To begin with, try removing the wireless profile from Vista (NSC > Manage
Wireless Networks and delete the one for your school's SSID). See if Start
> Connect can auto-detect the type of your network. If not, take the
settings your school gave you, go back to the Manage Wireless Networks and
create a new profile (Add). I'm assuming you're using WPA-Enterprise (if
you have a key to enter, it's WPA-Personal instead), so select that, you
said encryption was TKIP, and I'm making a guess that you're probably using
Protected EAP with that. Under Settings, enter whatever your setup
instructions call for -- I don't recall that dialog being very different
from XP to Vista.
If neither the auto-detect nor the fresh profile work, please post back here
with the exact error.
