How to configure WPA2 on Windows XP
In order to connect to K-State Salina's secure wireless network with a Windows operating system you will need to install the SecureW2 supplicant. To do so:
Download and run one of the SecureW2 Installers listed below (eID and password required):
Use the default options listed on the installation screens.
After installation finishes you may need to restart your computer.
Manually Configure Windows XP's wireless client
If you are still having trouble connecting after running the SecureW2 installer, you can use the following steps to manually set up your wireless connection.
NOTE: These steps show how to use the SecureW2 client with the default Windows XP wireless services. If you are using another Wireless control utility please consult your documentation as these steps may 'break' connections you have set up through that utility.

- Right-click on your Wireless Network Connection and select Properties.
- Select the Wireless Networks tab.
- Put a check in "Use Windows to configure my wireless network settings"
