===Third: Configure the Utility===
+
=='''Eduroam Wireless Setup'''==
The University of Akron uses the Cisco proprietary method of authentication known as LEAP (Lightweight Extensible Authentication Protocol). By default, Windows does not support LEAP, this is why it is necessary for the manufacturer to provide support for it in the utility. Make certain that the option to let the manufacturer's utility manage the wireless connection is checked. Select either "802.11x" or "Cisco Compatible" and under authentication select "LEAP". Enter in the user's UANETID as the username, leave the Domain field blank. The password should be typed in BY THE USER for security purposes and then click OK/Apply. The utility should take care of the rest and after the authentication process is done, an IP should be automatically assigned to that computer.
