An advantage of studentnet is that once you're connected, you don't have to log in each time. The following only has to be done once - after which the machine will connect automatically. It follows that you should only use this on your own laptop.
Note that studentnet's name is lower case throughout.
Here's info on connecting from other systems.
Before you start, you need to know the following: in your laptop you (hopefully) have a wireless card - the thing that handles your wireless connection. At the bottom right of your screen, you may see an icon like the one on the left - though that one indicates a wireless card that hasn't connected ...
Your laptop manages the card in one of two ways:
You need to ensure that Windows is managing the wireless connections. To check, right-mouse-click the 'Wireless connection icon' at the bottom right of your screen and choose 'View available connections'. If you're in range of it, 'Studentnet' should be listed - check that it is listed and then ignore this for now.
From the right hand side of the list of networks choose 'Change advanced settings' and then the 'Wireless networks' tab. You'll see something like the image on the right.
Ensure there's a tick against 'Use windows to configure my wireless network settings' and click 'OK to close the dialogue box. Now you're free to deal with the connection and the certificate it needs.
Your laptop should now connect to 'studentnet'. On the way in it will ask you to provide your student number as your username, your University password, and the domain (put
ACADEMIC as the domain)
If your laptop will not connect to 'studentnet', double check the settings - particularly the last one. If that's ticked, your laptop uses the wrong details to log into the network and the login fails. Or, see the full instructions on the University Wiki (staff / student login required)
This should work in the same way - just use the same process but substitute 'securenet' for 'studentnet'.
