* [[Wireless]] - standard configuration instructions
+
If the [[Connect_to_Wireless|standard configuration instructions]] aren't working for you, check the following items, '''in order''' (depending on your device). Recall that personal [[Routers_and_Wireless_Access_Points|Routers and Wireless Access Points]] are not allowed on campus; you must use the College wireless to avoid interfering with the network infrastructure. Also, personal devices that rely on direct communication, like Chromecast and personal wireless printers, '''are not supported''' due to the nature of enterprise network infrastructure.

== Wireless in XP with special software / hardware ==
+
== Step 1. Check that Wireless is Turned On ==
  
Whatever else we may say about Windows XP, its wireless network connection software is very usable. Often laptops come with some other wireless software installed as default, which we'll want to disable to ensure easy and standard configuration.
+
Many laptops have a switch on the side that disables wireless entirely. This can be useful but causes problems if it is accidentally pressed, often without anyone noticing. If the physical switch is on or you don't see one, make sure Airplane Mode is set to OFF (if applicable) and wireless is enabled (click on the Airport menu in the top right corner of the screen and if Turn On appears, click it).
  
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.
+
== Step 2. Check that the Networks Appear ==
  
==== Disable Dell ControlPoint Connection Manager ====
+
Your device should list available wireless networks including '''MiddleburyCollege''' and '''MiddleburyGuest'''. If neither of these networks appear, double-check that the wireless connection is enabled and try restarting your device. Once the networks appear, move on to the next step.
  
Dell ControlPoint software comes with all new Dells, so we will tend to run into it on the new E6400s. This software does not have the same set of options as Windows and cannot be used to connect to midd_secure.
+
*If MiddleburyGuest appears, but MiddleburyCollege doesn't, there are three possibilities:
 +
*#You are in an area with unusually weak signal, such that the networks are not detected properly.
 +
*#If your device uses Windows, OSX, Android, iOS, or common Linux flavors, it may not be properly configured to connect to MiddleburyCollege. You may need to update your operating system, wireless drivers, or firmware. Please [https://webhelpdesk.middlebury.edu/helpdesk/WebObjects/Helpdesk.woa/wa/TicketActions/new?rt=83 contact the Helpdesk].  
 +
*#If you have a more unusual device (such as certain gaming systems and older consumer devices), it may not support MiddleburyCollege. Please refer to [[Connect_to_Wireless#Registering_Supported_Devices|Registering Supported Devices]].  
  
To disable the software, right-click on the icon for the Dell Connection Manager (it looks like two computers connected by a wire). From the menu that pops up, select "Options." The page that opens will have a sidebar on the left side. The second box from the top should have several options checked that tell the Connection Utility to control those functions. Uncheck the "Wi-Fi" box.
+
== Step 3. Check to see if the problem is location-specific ==
  
==== TrueMobile 1150 ====
+
If you can access wireless normally in some areas, such as the library or classrooms, but there is a particular location where it seems not to work or is unreasonably slow, please [https://webhelpdesk.middlebury.edu/helpdesk/WebObjects/Helpdesk.woa/wa/TicketActions/new?rt=83 contact the Helpdesk]. We are continually improving our wireless infrastructure across campus and we appreciate your help in identifying areas of concern.
  
In order to use the Dell Truemobile 1150 wireless cards with midd_secure, you will need to update the drivers and the wireless client manager, which can be found on Dell's website: http://support.dell.com
+
== Step 4. Check that your account is valid for MiddleburyCollege wireless ==
  
You'll have to install the client manager first (run the executible and keep clicking OK), then upgrade the drivers. There is an HTML file that opens automatically once you install the drivers, this walks you through the driver update process. When you update the driver you will be prompted to create a wireless profile it's easiest to skip this step and just leave the Default profile as the only profile.
+
''Pay particular attention to this step and step 7 if you get a "wrong password" error, or if you keep getting prompted for your password over and over.''
  
Once the drivers are updated, open the network connection control panel and right-click on the wireless card and select Properties. Configure the authentication tab using the instructions for Windows XP: http://go.middlebury.edu/wireless
+
If you have another device or some other way to get network access, please [http://go.middlebury.edu/login login] to confirm that your Middlebury username and password (or Guest e-mail and password) are correct and active. Note that '''only network accounts''' (faculty, staff, student, or guest) can access the MiddleburyCollege network - local accounts specific to individual computers '''do not have access'''.
  
==== TrueMobile 1300, 1350, & 1400 ====
+
== Step 5. Release and renew your IP address ==
  
Dell TrueMobile cards require special configuration in order to successfully connect to midd_secure. Here are the basic steps.
+
If you seem to be connected to the network, but pages won't load, and especially if you get a warning about "limited connectivity" or a "self-assigned IP address", try to [[Release_and_Renew_IP_Address|release and renew your IP address]].
  
# Download and install the driver & utility update available in single file from: http://support.dell.com/support/downloads/download.aspx?c=us&cs=19&l=en&s=dhs&releaseid=R83097&formatcnt=1&fileid=109197
+
 
# Once the driver software is installed, you should have a new Wireless Card Utility icon in your System Tray, it looks like a graduated series of bars. Right click on the Wireless Card Utility icon and click "Open Utility." If the icon does not appear in your System Tray, go to Start->Programs->Dell TrueMobile and click on the 1300 WLAN Mini-PCI Card Utility shortcut.
 
# Make sure that "Enable Radio", "Let this tool manage your wireless settings" and "Show wireless icon in systray" are checked. Click on "midd_secure" in the available networks window, and then click "Configure."
 
# Make sure that the "Network name (SSID):" is "midd_secure". Click on the dropdown menu for "Network Authentication" and select "802.1X" from the list.
 
# Your screen should then look like this (with 802.1X and WEP selected). If so, click on the Authentication tab to continue.
 
# Click the dropdown menu for "EAP Method" and select "LEAP" from the list. NOTE: if you do not see LEAP on the list, go back to the Wireless Network Properties tab, and make sure that "802.1X" is selected for the "Network Authentication."
 
# With LEAP selected, type your username and password in the boxes provided. Note that you should type your username in the following format: "MIDD\yourusername" and then your password as normal. Once you've entered this information, click "OK"
 
# midd_secure should now be listed under "Preferred networks." Click OK. Your computer will now connect to the wireless network.
 
# The Wireless Card Setup icon will turn green, yellow or red, depending on your signal strength.
 
  
==== Disable Intel Pro Wireless ====
+
== Step 6. Repair Wireless with Built-in Tools ==
  
This can be done in a few different ways, depending on the version of the Intel software:
+
*In Windows 10, right-click the Network icon in the lower right corner of the screen then click '''Troubleshoot problems'''.
 +
*In macOS, click on the Airport menu (top right corner of the screen) and click Turn Off. Wait a few seconds, click on the Airport menu and click Turn On.
  
*Right-click on the Intel Wireless tray icon (next to the clock in the lower right side of the screen), select "Let Windows Manage Wi-fi". Or if that doesn't work:
+
 
*Double-click on the Intel Wireless tray icon (next to the clock in the lower right side of the screen). When the Intel window appears click Tools =&gt; "Let Windows Manage Wi-fi" or Advanced =&gt; "Let Windows Manage Wi-fi"<br>
 
  
== Troubleshooting in Mac OSX ==
+
== Step 7. Check for Stored Password Issues ==
  
==== Mac OSX 10.3 (Panther) ====
+
''If you've changed your password recently (or since you were last on campus), you should definitely do the following.''
  
* 10.3 (Panther) is not compatible with midd_secure. Also, some iBook G4s are not compatible with midd_secure, regardless of the OS.
+
*On a ''college-owned Windows computer'', make sure you're logged in with your current password by connecting to a wired connection, locking the computer (Win+L), then unlocking it with your new password.  
* Delete midd_secure and midd_unplugged entries in System&nbsp;Preferences =&gt; Network =&gt; Airport =&gt; Airport tab
+
*On a ''personal Windows computer or any mobile device'', you should be able to update the stored password for MiddleburyCollege when prompted by typing in your current College username and password. If this doesn't work, you may need to forget the network (see below). If a Windows computer '''does not ask for your credentials''' when connecting for the first time, you will need to [[Connect_to_Wireless#Setting_Up_a_Manual_Connection|connect manually]].  
* Delete 802.1X profiles in System Preferences =&gt; Network =&gt; Airport =&gt; 802.1X tab
+
*On a ''Mac'', updating your wireless password '''does not work''' due to a bug in the operating system. You must forget the network and delete entries in the Login Keychain related to MiddleburyCollege WiFi, as described in step 8 below.  
* Delete desertcat certificate in Keychain Access
 
* Delete midd_secure entry in Keychain Access
 
* Uninstall PeerGuardian (if it's installed, it's a 3rd party app)
 
* Try starting the mac in safe boot and try the wireless there.

Sometimes OSX fails to connect to midd_secure because its "remembered" settings become corrupted and conflict with midd_secure settings. This generally shows up as a "WPA error". Use the following steps to remove all midd_secure-related settings on the computer, then you can try connecting "cleanly".
+
=== Windows - College Owned ===
  
First, remove all wireless network connection settings:
+
Middlebury-managed Windows computers have the MiddleburyCollege network preconfigured with the correct settings and cannot be manually adjusted. However, this assumes that you are logging into the computer as yourself - see [[#Step_4._Check_that_your_account_is_valid_for_MiddleburyCollege_wireless|Valid accounts]] above.
# Go to network connect
 
:You can do this by clicking on the airport icon on the MacOS X menu and selecting "Open Internet Connect..."
 
# Go to the the "802.1X" tab.
 
# On the configuration option, use the drop-down menu to select "Edit Configurations..."
 
# Remove all previously saved connection settings.
 
# Hit OK and close Internet Connect.
 
  
After those steps, remove saved passwords from Keychain:
+
=== Windows 10 - Personal ===
# Go to the "Utilities" folder in the "Applications" folder
 
:While in finder you may use, apple-shift-U or go-&gt;Utilities, to navigate to the utilities folder
 
# Fire up "Keychain Access"
 
# Look for an "oncila.middlebury.edu" certificate and delete it
 
# Delete anything that says "midd_secure" or "WPA Midd_secure" on it. "Basically anything that you removed in the earlier step."
 
# Close the Keychain Access application.
 
  
After these steps, try connecting to Midd_secure as directed above. You should be able to connect now.
+
#Click the Wifi networks icon at the right of the Taskbar.
 +
#The ''Action Center'' pops out; click the link for '''Network & Internet settings'''.
 +
#Click '''Wi-Fi''' in the left-hand navigation pane, then click '''Manage known networks'''.
 +
#A list of all available saved Wi-fi networks appears. Click the entry of the one you want to remove, then click the '''Forget''' button.  
 +
#To reconnect to the forgotten network, click the WiFi icon, click the desired network name, then click the '''Connect''' button. Supply your password when prompted.  
  
==== Mac OSX 10.5 (Leopard) ====
+
&nbsp;
  
General troubleshooting steps:
 
# Have customer login to his/her account. Have customer nearby during the procedure.
 
# Open System Preferences =&gt; Network
 
# Select Airport from the list on the left, then click the Advanced button in the lower right corner
 
# Under the airport tab, delete midd_secure
 
# Under the 802.1x tab delete any entries relating to midd_secure
 
# Click the OK button in the lower right corner, then click the Apply button in the lower right corner
 
# Open Keychain Access (Finder =&gt; Go =&gt; Utilities)
 
# Select login from the list on the left, click on "All Items" in the list on the left
 
# Delete any keychain entries that have midd_secure in the name.
 
# Delete any keychain entries that have '''desertcat''' or '''oncilla''' in the name<br>
 
# Restart
 
# Connect to midd_unplugged, make sure that works
 
# From the airport menu select midd_secure, enter username and password. It's recommended that you UNCHECK "remember this network"
 
  
Other tips:
+
=== macOS ===
* midd_secure sometimes breaks because Mac OS X remembers the settings incorrectly, or remembers the customer's OLD password. If you don't let Mac OS X save the settings for midd_secure, then it won't break in the future.

#Click the Wi-Fi icon again then choose '''Open Network Preferences'''.
 +
#Click the '''Advanced...''' button, lower right.
 +
#From the Wi-Fi tab, click the network name you wish to remove, then click the '''minus sign''' to delete it.
 +
#Click the Wi-Fi icon once again then choose '''Turn Wi-Fi On'''.<br/> &nbsp;
  
We now have wireless service at the Bread Loaf cross-country ski center. The network is "Breadnet", the standard Bread Loaf wireless service – not "Midd Unplugged". No authentication required, it acts like Midd Unplugged.
+
If issues persist, try the following
  
'''Info from summer 2009:''' Most of the Bread Loaf campus is able to use "Midd Unplugged" for wireless access. Cherry, Birch, Maple and Frothingham buildings, however, need to select the "'''Breadnet'''" wireless network. No log on credentials are required for either one.

#With Wi-Fi turned off, choose '''Go''' > '''Utilities > Keychain Access '''from the Finder menu along the top of the screen.
 +
#Select '''login''' keychain in the left-hand pane & '''All Items '''under "Category."  
 +
#In the search field (upper right) search for '''MiddleburyCollege'''.&nbsp; Select then delete any records for '''MiddleburyCollege 802.1X Password'''. You will be asked to verify you want to delete this; confirm by clicking delete.
 +

 +
#Click on the Wi-Fi icon again then choose '''Turn On Wi-Fi'''; re-connect to MiddleburyCollege.  
 +
#Additional troubleshooting steps, in extreme cases: create a new Network location; log in as another user - if fixed, check original user's login & Local Items keychains for passwords & certificates potentially related to cpauth, MiddleburyCollege, InCommon.
  
Wireless in Cherry, Birch, Maple, and Frothingham depends on a chain of wireless access points (WAPs) extending from the Annex. The farthest eastward extent of the Bread Loaf campus fiber infrastructure is the Annex. If any WAP in the chain going east from the Annex ceases working, everything from there eastward loses connectivity.

 +
#Go to Settings -> Wi-Fi.
 +
#Next to the MiddleburyCollege network, tap the blue "i" (info).
 +
#Tap Forget This Network, then Forget to confirm.
 +
 
 +
== Step 9. Update Drivers ==
 +
 
 +
On a Mac, iOS device, or Android device, make sure that you have run Software Update and there are no further updates available. In some cases, you may need to upgrade to a newer version of your OS.
 +
 
 +
*Note: OSX version 10.10 (Yosemite) has problems with enterprise wireless; if you are experiencing persistent issues, we recommend upgrading to 10.11 (El Capitan).
 +
 
 +
For Windows computers, check the vendor website for your computer and/or wireless card to see if updated drivers are available, install them, and reboot. If you need assistance with this, please come to the Helpdesk (LIB202).
 +
 
 +
== Step 10. Contact the Helpdesk ==
 +
 
 +
If the above steps don't work, please write down your [[MAC_address|Ethernet ID aka MAC address]] and have it ready when [https://webhelpdesk.middlebury.edu/helpdesk/WebObjects/Helpdesk.woa/wa/TicketActions/new?rt=83 contacting the Helpdesk]. If the matter is urgent or you cannot use that link, please call us at (802) 443-2200 with your name, contact info, and a description of the problem. For best results, also Option-click the wireless icon and collect the information about your connection that appears when you do so.

 +
&nbsp;
 +
 
 +
== Wireless Compatibility ==
 +
 
 +
Any device with a wireless network card or adapter should be compatible with Middlebury's wireless networks, as long as it supports the WPA2 or 802.1X protocol. The vast majority of wireless devices in the world support these protocols. Our wireless vendor, Aruba, publishes a [http://www.arubanetworks.com/support-services/aruba-support-program/interoperability/ detailed list of compatible devices] (if the link becomes out of date, search the web for <code>Aruba compatibility</code>).

Latest revision as of 16:22, 6 April 2020

If the standard configuration instructions aren't working for you, check the following items, in order (depending on your device). Recall that personal Routers and Wireless Access Points are not allowed on campus; you must use the College wireless to avoid interfering with the network infrastructure. Also, personal devices that rely on direct communication, like Chromecast and personal wireless printers, are not supported due to the nature of enterprise network infrastructure.

Step 1. Check that Wireless is Turned On

Many laptops have a switch on the side that disables wireless entirely. This can be useful but causes problems if it is accidentally pressed, often without anyone noticing. If the physical switch is on or you don't see one, make sure Airplane Mode is set to OFF (if applicable) and wireless is enabled (click on the Airport menu in the top right corner of the screen and if Turn On appears, click it).

Step 2. Check that the Networks Appear

Your device should list available wireless networks including MiddleburyCollege and MiddleburyGuest. If neither of these networks appear, double-check that the wireless connection is enabled and try restarting your device. Once the networks appear, move on to the next step.

  • If MiddleburyGuest appears, but MiddleburyCollege doesn't, there are three possibilities:
    1. You are in an area with unusually weak signal, such that the networks are not detected properly.
    2. If your device uses Windows, OSX, Android, iOS, or common Linux flavors, it may not be properly configured to connect to MiddleburyCollege. You may need to update your operating system, wireless drivers, or firmware. Please contact the Helpdesk.
    3. If you have a more unusual device (such as certain gaming systems and older consumer devices), it may not support MiddleburyCollege. Please refer to Registering Supported Devices.

Step 3. Check to see if the problem is location-specific

If you can access wireless normally in some areas, such as the library or classrooms, but there is a particular location where it seems not to work or is unreasonably slow, please contact the Helpdesk. We are continually improving our wireless infrastructure across campus and we appreciate your help in identifying areas of concern.

Step 4. Check that your account is valid for MiddleburyCollege wireless

Pay particular attention to this step and step 7 if you get a "wrong password" error, or if you keep getting prompted for your password over and over.

If you have another device or some other way to get network access, please login to confirm that your Middlebury username and password (or Guest e-mail and password) are correct and active. Note that only network accounts (faculty, staff, student, or guest) can access the MiddleburyCollege network - local accounts specific to individual computers do not have access.

Step 5. Release and renew your IP address

If you seem to be connected to the network, but pages won't load, and especially if you get a warning about "limited connectivity" or a "self-assigned IP address", try to release and renew your IP address.

 

Step 6. Repair Wireless with Built-in Tools

  • In Windows 10, right-click the Network icon in the lower right corner of the screen then click Troubleshoot problems.
  • In macOS, click on the Airport menu (top right corner of the screen) and click Turn Off. Wait a few seconds, click on the Airport menu and click Turn On.

 

Step 7. Check for Stored Password Issues

If you've changed your password recently (or since you were last on campus), you should definitely do the following.

  • On a college-owned Windows computer, make sure you're logged in with your current password by connecting to a wired connection, locking the computer (Win+L), then unlocking it with your new password.
  • On a personal Windows computer or any mobile device, you should be able to update the stored password for MiddleburyCollege when prompted by typing in your current College username and password. If this doesn't work, you may need to forget the network (see below). If a Windows computer does not ask for your credentials when connecting for the first time, you will need to connect manually.
  • On a Mac, updating your wireless password does not work due to a bug in the operating system. You must forget the network and delete entries in the Login Keychain related to MiddleburyCollege WiFi, as described in step 8 below.
