Re: Connecting a laptop to hotspot

Re: Connecting a laptop to hotspot

I have done this but still not connecting , would I be correct by putting the username as vmedwifi\*myemail* ? if so when I do that it asks for credentials again

Re: Connecting a laptop to hotspot

this should work ok on windows 10, windows 7 has troubles when connecting as said previously doubtful it will work.

Re: Connecting a laptop to hotspot

Would it work if I was closer to the hotspot with a windows 7 computer and am I doing it correctly when doing vmedwifi\*my email* ??

Re: Connecting a laptop to hotspot

closer will just cut down on possible dropped packets, and improve stability but not improve getting connected

Re: Connecting a laptop to hotspot

windows 7 doesn't support radius. nothing you can do but upgrade to windows 8/10
