If These Steps Do NOT Work
Please note these steps are only for use on the 10.5.X (Leopard) system and the 10.6.X (Snow Leopard) System. This should work on 10.5.2 but it is highly recommended you upgrade to the newest 10.5 release(10.5 and 10.5.1 probably will not work with these steps). Sometimes Apple has trouble picking up new Enterprise Wireless Network Settings. Be sure to clear the keychain of any old login information. Also, toggling the Airport on and off sometimes will force new settings to take action. If this does not work, restarting the computer after the settings are all in place is known to be effective. If all these steps fail, your more than welcome to contact the Support Center at 330-972-6888 or visit us at The MediaTech Services Desk in Bierce Library.
