This article describes how to configure the Microsoft Windows 7 operating system to connect to the secure wireless network available on the PSU campus.
- Windows-based PC running any version of Windows 7 (Home Basic, Home Premium, Business, Ultimate, etc)
- An active Odin account, Oregon State or Oregon State University account or a guest wireless account.
- Click the Start menu.
- Type Network in the search field and then choose Network and Sharing Center from the list as shown below.
- When the "Network and Sharing Center" opens choose Connect to a network as shown below.
- A window will appear showing networks in range. Choose PSU Secure, check Connect automatically, and click the Connect button
- A window will appear asking for a username and password. Enter your Odin username and password then click OK.
- Next, you will see a window warning you that the server could not be validated as shown below.
- Click Connect.
PLEASE NOTE: You may have to repeat steps 5 and 6 several times. This is normal. If you still cannot connect after 3 times, please reference "Troubleshooting" below.
- Make sure the wireless radio on your computer is active. Some computers have an indicator light that shows if it is active or not. If the light is off, your wireless radio is off. This is often controlled by a switch on many laptops or a combination of a "Function" button and an "F" key (such as F8). If you are unsure, refer to your computer's documentation.
- If you have problems connecting to the wireless network, try connecting at another physical location on campus.
If you are having difficulty accessing the Portland State University wire network we recommend that you bring your device to the Help Desk in Smith Memorial Student Union room 18 where a technician can troubleshoot your device.
You can also call the Help Desk at 503.725.HELP or email firstname.lastname@example.org for answers to general questions about the network, its operation, or its use.
