Mac OS X Leopard (10.5)

Connecting to the Campus Wireless Network with Mac OS X 10.5 (Leopard)

  1. To configure your computer’s wireless network setting, first make sure AirPort is turned on. Check the icon at the top right near the clock. Next, click the Apple menu (upper-left corner of the desktop), then click System Preferences.
  2. Click the Network icon (in the third row). Next, if necessary, click the lock icon in the lower-left corner of the box (unlocking it with your Mac password) to make changes.
  3. Click AirPort on the left, and click the Advanced… button at the lower right.
  4. Click the 802.1X tab.
  5. Click the + (plus) button in the lower-left corner, and select Add User Profile. Type in “BishopNet” (without the quotes) for the name of the new configuration.
  6. On the right side of the box, make these settings:
    • User Name [Type in your OWU username]
    • Password [Type in your OWU password]
    • Wireless Network BishopNet
    • Authentication Click the PEAP checkbox but nothing else — no other checked boxes
  7. Click OK, then click Apply.
  8. You should be asked to accept a certificate the first time you connect. The certificate will be issued by Ohio Wesleyan University and Thawte. Be sure to click Show Certificate and then click the Always trust these certificates checkbox. Next, click Continue. (Note: If a certificate notification box does not pop up, you may need to turn off AirPort then turn it back on.)
  9. Open safari and go to http://wifi.owu.edu/ to finish your registration. You will be asked for your OWU username and password one more time. Make sure the first letter in your username is not capitalized. Once you complete and Submit this, you should be online with BishopNet in about 5 minutes.
