Windows XP Instructions
To access wireless internet using a Windows XP computer, please follow the directions below. If you experience difficulties, call the Student Support Center: 1-877-899-1499 or send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Open the wireless connections on your computer and attempt to connect to du-secure. This will fail and pop up an alert with an error about the certificate.
Click on Change Advanced Settings on the left bottom side (as noted in the picture above).
In the following window, click on the wireless networks tab, select du-secure, and click choose Properties
Under the Association tab, be sure WPA2 and AES are selected like shown.
Go to Authentication tab and change EAP type to PEAP (as show). Make sure "Authenticate as computer when computer information is available" is unchecked.
Click on Properties. Under the Trusted Root Certification Authorities locate and check the box next to "VeriSign Class 3 Public Primary Certification Authority - G5". This option is near the bottom of a very long list (as shown below). Next click on Configure.
A pop up (as displayed below) will appear. Uncheck the box next to "Automatically use my Windows logon name and password". Click "ok" until you return to the wireless options.
Finally, disconnect from du-secure and reconnect. It will now pop up an alert on the bottom of your screen that says "Click here to authenticate the certificate". Click on that pop-up, then put in your DU username and password. Keep the domain field blank.
