ÿþIt is strongly recommended to use the Proxim Configuration Utility for the following security types:  

802.1x, WPA, WEP, and No Encryption.





The Proxim Install Package consists of the following:

1.	Network Card Drivers

2.	Proxim Configuration Utility (includes client supplicant)





The Proxim Configuration Utility (PCU) is a client supplicant that has support for 802.1x, WPA, WEP, and No Encryption. 

You can use it to configure your SSID, Security, and other useful wireless card configurations. Please refer to Section 1 

for how to correctly configure your card using the PCU.





There are also other supplicants that you can obtain from other companies. Although it is recommended that you use 

the Proxim Configuration Utility, you may choose to use a different supplicant. Refer to Section 2 & 3. 





It is recommended to remove any old wireless drivers that are currently not being used on the machine. We have seen that

these may cause problems.

Section 2.1

Switching between Proxim Configuration Utility (PCU) and Microsoft Wireless Configuration under Windows 2000

***************************************************************************************************************



The Microsoft Wireless Configuration that comes with Service Pack 4 currently can only be used to configure 

802.1x Authentication. It cannot configure the SSID or Pre-Shared Keys (WEP) or WPA. Using Microsoft Wireless Configuration 

will be inconvenient if you need to switch between networks, such as using your computer both at home and at work.



Upon installation or upgrade, the Proxim Configuration Utility will disable the Microsoft Wireless Configuration. 

Every time you reboot your computer, the Microsoft Wireless Configuration may be disabled and you may need to re-enable it.







***************************************************************************************************************

Steps to use Windows 2000 Microsoft Wireless Configuration after installing Proxim Configuration Utility (PCU) for 

802.1x Authentication:

***************************************************************************************************************



1. Open the PCU and Configure your profile to the correct SSID and Security Type:

	- Double-Click on the PCU tray icon.

	- Click on the "Profile Management" tab.

	- Click "New"

	- Enter a Profile Name.

	- Enter the SSID of the network in SSID1.

	- Click on the "Security" tab

	- Do NOT Select "None" for security type

	- If you are using 802.1x (TLS):

		- Select "802.1x" and EAP type "TLS"

	- If you are using 802.1x (PEAP):

		- Select "802.1x and EAP type "PEAP"

	- Do NOT click on "Configure" or change any other security settings

	- Click "OK"

	- Activate your new profile



2. Start Windows Configuration Service:

	- Start Menu -> Settings -> Control Panel

	- Open "Administrative Tools"

	- Open "Services"

	- Open "Wireless Configuration"

	- Set Startup Type to "Automatic"

	- Click "Start"

	- Click "OK"



3. Configure the Wireless Configuration:

	- Start Menu -> Settings ->Network and Dial-up Connections

	- Open the "Properties" of the connection that matches your device

	- Click on the "Authentication" tab



	- If you are using TLS:

		- You will need to have already obtained a certificate from the server.

		- Select "Enable network access control using IEEE 802.1X"

		- Set EAP type to "Smart Card or other Certificate"

		- Click on "Properties"

		- Select "Use a certificate on this computer"



	- If you are using PEAP:

		- Select "Enable network access control using IEEE 802.1X"

		- Set EAP type to "Protected EAP (PEAP)"

		- If you did not obtain a certificate from the server:

			- Do NOT select "Validate Server Certificate"

		- Click "Configure", near the bottom right corner.

		- If your Authentication User Name, Password, or Domain is different from your Windows Logon or 

                  Domain settings, do NOT check "Automatically use my Windows logon name and password (and domain if any)."





*****************

Troubleshooting:

****************

1. Make sure that the Microsoft Wireless Configuration Service is started. Refer to Step 2. When you reboot your computer, 

   the Microsoft Wireless Configuration may be disabled. You may need to start the service again (Step 2) after each reboot.



2. If you want to change the SSID of your network, you will need to configure it in the PCU:

	- Double-Click on the PCU tray icon.

	- Click on the "Profile Management" tab

	- Select the current profile and click "Modify"

	- Change the SSID.

	-Click "OK"



3. On the PCU, make sure that 802.1x security is selected in the current profile and NOT "None"



4. On the PCU, make sure that you have entered the correct SSID of your network in the current profile.



5. 802.1x (PEAP) - If you do not have a certificate from the server, make sure that you do NOT select 

   "Validate Server Certificate".



6. 802.1x (PEAP) - If your PEAP login name, password, and domain is different from your Windows logon name, password, 

   or domain, then make sure that you do NOT check the box that says "Automatically use my Windows logon name 

   and password (and domain if any)."
