Configuring GTwifi on Windows 7

This will explain how to configure GTwifi on a Windows 7 device.

If you have difficulties with your connectivity after configuring your device, a Windows 7 GTwifi Troubleshooting Guide is available.

  1. Click on the Network Manager icon (looks like little stair steps) in the System Tray (located in the lower right hand corner).
  2. You should see a listing of GT networks (specifically "GTwifi","GTother", and "GTvisitor" at least).
  3. Click on "GTwifi". Ensure that "Connect automatically" is checked and click the "Connect" button.

  4. A box will pop up asking for your GT Account credentials. (this is the same username and password you use for Passport, Buzzport, Techworks, etc.)

  5. After entering your credentials, another box will appear explaining that the security certificate cannot be verified.
    1. Click the arrow box to view the "Details".

    2. Ensure that the "Radius server" field reads: gtwpa.lawn.gatech.edu
    3. Ensure that the "Root CA" field reads: AddTrust External CA Root
    4. Click the "Connect" button.

  6. You should now be connected to GTwifi. Windows may ask you to set a "Network Location". For this, select "Public network".

  7. Verify your connection to "GTwifi" by clicking on the wireless icon in your system tray.


NOTE: Performing additional configuration for your device (Steps 3 and 4 on the Troubleshooting Guide) will improve your device's ability to connect to GTwifi efficiently. Visit the Windows 7 Troubleshooting Guide for details.

If you have difficulties with your connectivity after configuring your device, a Windows 7 Troubleshooting Guide is available.
