This will explain how to configure GTwifi on a Windows 7 device.
If you have difficulties with your connectivity after configuring your device, a Windows 7 GTwifi Troubleshooting Guide is available.
- Click on the Network Manager icon (looks like little stair steps) in the System Tray (located in the lower right hand corner).
- You should see a listing of GT networks (specifically "GTwifi","GTother", and "GTvisitor" at least).
- Click on "GTwifi". Ensure that "Connect automatically" is checked and click the "Connect" button.
- A box will pop up asking for your GT Account credentials.
(this is the same username and password you use for Passport, Buzzport, Techworks, etc.)
- After entering your credentials, another box will appear explaining that the security certificate cannot be verified.
- Click the arrow box to view the "Details".
- Ensure that the "Radius server" field reads: gtwpa.lawn.gatech.edu
- Ensure that the "Root CA" field reads: AddTrust External CA Root
- Click the "Connect" button.
- You should now be connected to GTwifi. Windows may ask you to set a "Network Location". For this, select "Public network".
Verify your connection to "GTwifi" by clicking on the wireless icon in your system tray.
NOTE: Performing additional configuration for your device (Steps 3 and 4 on the Troubleshooting Guide) will improve your device's ability to connect to GTwifi efficiently. Visit the Windows 7 Troubleshooting Guide for details.
