How to Clear Your Wireless Credentials

Important information for those who share a wireless device!

When you connect to ArgoAir, the 802.1x client stores your name with the ID of the computer (or other wireless device) that you are using. This means that if someone else uses the computer, ArgoAir will not recognize the new user and will continue to think that you are logged into the wireless network. Clearing your wireless credentials disassociates your name from the computer ID. 

Windows Vista

  1. Go to Start > Control Panel > Network and Internet > Network and Sharing Center.
  2. Select Manage Wireless Networks
  3. Double click on argoair, then select the Security tab.
  4. Uncheck the box labeled "Cache user information for subsequent connections to this network.

For automated set-up of your computer, follow the instructions on the top of this page.
