How to connect to the midd_secure wireless network.

Windows XP

Please visit: Configuring midd_secure in Windows XP for detailed steps.

Although possible, configuring midd_secure to work on an Windows XP machine using a wifi manager other that the Windows XP wifi utility is usually difficult pain. For this reason alone, I recommend that any third party wifi utility be disabled.

Older Dell Wireless Cards

If you have an older Dell wireless card, the above instructions may not work, but you are encouraged to try them. An alternative setup procedure is provided in the Configuring Older Dell Wireless Cards for midd_secure article.

Windows Vista

How to configure Vista for midd_secure

Random note: Setting it up as a WPA2 Enterprise network has been fairly successful but I have no idea in what version of Vista this works/does not work. You should be able to do so by setting up a network manually and editing the settings of that manually set up network.
