Client Adapter Recognition Problems

If your computer's PCMCIA adapter does not recognize your client adapter, check your computer's BIOS and make sure that the PC card controller mode is set to PCIC compatible.


Note A computer's BIOS varies depending on the manufacturer. For support on BIOS-related issues, consult your computer's manufacturer.


Resolving Resource Conflicts

If you encounter problems while installing your client adapter on a computer running a Windows operating system, you may need to specify a different interrupt request (IRQ) or I/O range for the adapter.

The default IRQ for the client adapter is IRQ 10, which may not work for all systems. Follow the steps for your specific operating system to obtain an available IRQ.

During installation the adapter's driver installation script scans for an unused I/O range. The installation can fail if the I/O range found by the driver installation script is occupied by another device but not reported by Windows. An I/O range might not be reported if a device is physically present in the system but not enabled under Windows. Follow the steps for your specific operating system to obtain an available I/O range.

Problems Associating to an Access Point

Follow the instructions below if your client adapter fails to associate to an access point.

If possible, move your workstation a few feet closer to an access point and try again.

Make sure that the client adapter is securely inserted into your computer's client adapter slot.

If you are using a PCI card, make sure that the antenna is securely attached.

Make sure that the access point is turned on and operating.

Check that all parameters are set properly for both the client adapter and the access point. These include the SSID, EAP authentication, WEP activation, network type, channel, etc.

Follow the instructions in the previous section to resolve any resource conflicts.

If the client adapter still fails to establish contact, refer to the "Obtaining Technical Assistance" section in the Preface for technical support information.


Note A client might not be able to associate with an AP if the client is using a very old version of the firmware and the client utility. Use the latest version of the firmware and the client utility for all client adapters, and ensure that all client adapters in the WLAN use the same version of firmware.


Problems Connecting to the Network

After you have installed the appropriate driver and client utilities, contact your IS department if you have a problem connecting to the network. Proxy server, network protocols, and further authentication information might be needed to connect to the network.

Recommended Action    Click OK. Only SSID1 now appears on the Profile Editor (General) window. If you want to specify multiple SSIDs, choose Infrastructure for the Network Type parameter on the Profile Editor (Advanced) window.

Error Message    You can have only one SSID in a WPA Passphrase network. The other SSIDs 
on the General tab will be disabled. Do you want to continue?

Explanation    You chose the WPA/WPA2 Passphrase security option on the Profile Management (Security) window when multiple SSIDs were specified on the Profile Management (General) window.

Recommended Action    Click Yes to allow SSID2 and SSID3 to be disabled for this profile or click No to cancel the operation.

Error Message    You chose not to copy your private PAC. If you experience wireless 
connection problems during Windows domain logon or logged off stage, you must 
reconfigure the profile to use a global PAC.

Explanation    When you were prompted to copy your PAC to the global store so that it will be available when you are not logged on, you clicked No.

Recommended Action    The profile will use the private PAC for authentication. However, if you experience any wireless connection problems, you may need to reconfigure your profile to use a global PAC.

Error Message    You do not have a valid Protected Access Credentials (PAC), the PAC 
you provided does not match the authentication server, or the PAC is expired. You 
may proceed with authenticating if the server supports auto provisioning. Do you 
want to proceed and accept auto provisioning?

Explanation    You activated an EAP-FAST profile that is configured for automatic PAC provisioning and does not specify a PAC authority for which you have a current valid PAC.

Recommended Action    If you want to attempt to auto-provision a PAC from the server, click Yes. Otherwise, click No. If you choose No, a message appears indicating that the client adapter was unable to EAP-FAST authenticate.

Error Message    You failed to change your EAP-FAST domain/network password. Make sure 
you enter a new password that complies with the password policy and try again. Do 
you want to retry now?

Explanation    An error occurred when you attempted to change your EAP-FAST password.

Recommended Action    Click Yes to try again. When the Enter Wireless Network Password window appears, enter your new password. Otherwise, click No to cancel the operation.

Error Message    You have just changed your network password. You must change your saved 
password settings in the EAP-FAST profiles before connecting again.

Explanation    Your network password has changed.

Recommended Action    Update your EAP-FAST password on the EAP-FAST Settings window for any EAP-FAST profiles that are configured with a saved username and password.

Error Message    You must configure the PEAP-GTC settings properly. User information, 
password, or machine information is incomplete.

Explanation    You improperly configured a PEAP (EAP-GTC) profile.

Recommended Action    Modify the profile's configuration settings, making sure to enter all necessary information.

Error Message    You must define a certificate to use EAP-TLS. Click Configure to select 
a certificate.

Explanation    You chose the EAP-TLS option on the Profile Management (Security) window and clicked OK without selecting a certificate.

Recommended Action    Click Configure and select a certificate on the Define Certificate window.

Error Message    You must enter a valid login name to use EAP-TLS. Click Configure to 
enter a login name.

Explanation    You chose the EAP-TLS option on the Profile Management (Security) window and clicked OK without entering your EAP-TLS login name.

Recommended Action    Click Configure and enter your EAP-TLS login name on the Define Certificate window.

Error Message    You must enter the correct old password in order to change the new 
password.

Explanation    You incorrectly entered your old EAP-FAST password on the Please Change Password window.

Recommended Action    Carefully re-enter your old EAP-FAST password on the Please Change Password window.

Error Message    You must select a PAC or enable Allow Automatic PAC Provisioning.

Explanation    While configuring a profile for EAP-FAST, you did not enable automatic PAC provisioning or select a PAC authority from the drop-down list on the EAP-FAST Settings window.

Recommended Action    Choose a PAC authority from the drop-down list on the EAP-FAST Settings window. If the list is empty, import a PAC file.

Error Message    You must select a Passphrase to use WPA/WPA2.

Explanation    You chose the WPA/WPA2 Passphrase option on the Profile Management (Security) window and clicked OK without entering a passphrase.

Recommended Action    Enter a WPA/WPA2 passphrase on the Define WPA/WPA2 Pre-Shared Key window.

Error Message    You must set at least one Pre-Shared Key.

Explanation    You chose the Pre-Shared Key (Static WEP) option on the Profile Management (Security) window and clicked OK without entering a static WEP key.

Recommended Action    Enter a static WEP key on the Define Pre-Shared Keys window and then click OK.

Error Message    Your security setting is invalid for an Ad Hoc network. If you want, 
security will be disabled for you. You can also configure security to Pre-shared 
keys. Do you want to disable security?

Explanation    Pre-Shared Key (Static WEP) is the only valid security option for an ad hoc network. You chose Ad Hoc for Network Type on the Profile Management (Advanced) window when a security option other than static WEP was already selected.

Recommended Action    If you want to configure this profile for use in an ad hoc network, click Yes to disable security. Otherwise, click No.

Error Message    You selected a private PAC for EAP-FAST authentication. It may not be 
accessible when the user is logged off or during the domain logon process. Confirm 
if you want to copy the selected PAC into the global PAC store.

Explanation    You selected a private PAC and the No Network Connection Unless User Is Logged In check box is unchecked. Therefore, the PAC may not be accessible during domain logon or when you are logged off.

Recommended Action    If you want a copy of the PAC to be added to the global store so that it will be available when you are not logged on, click Yes. If you do not want a copy of the PAC to be added to the global store, click No.
