  • 1. Drake University Student Wireless Setup for Windows XP Prerequisites: To connect to the Drake University wireless network, both the software and hardware installed on your computer must support the Wi-Fi Protected Access (WPA) wireless security standard. As a result, the following items are required to gain access to the network: • Windows XP Professional or XP Home with Service Pack 2 (or the latest). • A WPA certified wireless network adapter. We recommend that you use a 802.11g 54 Mb wireless card. The Linksys WPC54G works well and is easy to install. Most “built in” wireless network adapters, including Dell’s Truemobile and Intel’s Centrino branded wireless adapters, support WPA with the latest drivers. Please contact the laptop manufacturer to obtain the latest drivers. In addition, most PC Card wireless network adapters manufactured since early 2003 will support WPA. If you are unsure as to whether or not your wireless card meets the guidelines, please wait until you return to campus so that it may be tested. If it does not function properly, you may order a replacement over the web at that time. Configuration: (The following examples were created on a laptop configured to use Windows XP view, not Classic view.) 1. Login to your computer using an account with administrative privileges. (If there is any question about whether or not you have administrative access to your laptop, please contact your IT support person or the HelpDesk before continuing.) 2. Click Start > Control Panel and then click on Network and Internet Connections.
