1A First Alternative

Authenticated Wifi - Windows 7

This manual is meant for administrators of a domain with a 1A-server. Authenticated Wifi is available when you have the 1A-option "Managed Wifi".

In the 1A-manager, you can configure which persons are allowed to use their own credentials for using Wifi. You can do this by adding users to the group wifi. This process is described in the 1A-manager manual Authenticated Wifi.

To complete this manual, you will need:

  • The 1A-option "Managed Wifi"
  • Your username and password
  • Membership of the configuration group wifi
