QU-WiFi Wireless Setup for Mac OS X


Automatic Setup:


  1. From the menu bar, click the AirPort icon and select QU-WiFi. Note that you may first need to select "Turn AirPort On" if it is not already.
  2. Enter your Queens username and password, and then click OK.
  3. When the Verify Certificate window appears, click Show Certificate.
  4. Check the Always trust... box located directly under the picture of the lock, then click Continue. Your computer should connect to the encrypted wireless network. 

 Note: You may be prompted to unlock your Keychain in order to store the certificate. If so,
provide the name/password for your laptop. These may be different from your Queens
