Authenticated Wifi - Windows XP

Microsoft has ceased security support for the Windows XP operating system in May 2014. This means that Windows XP PCs will no longer be safe to use.

Please contact your 1A partner to obtain a more recent operating system or a new PC.
This manual is for older systems and/or software and is no longer maintained.

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.

  • The 1A-option "Managed Wifi"
