ASU Wired NAC - How do I Manually Configure 802.1X Wired Authentication on Windows 7?

Use the following instructions to manually configure 802.1X authentication on Windows 7 for wired LAN connections.

This is necessary in order to connect to the authenticated ASU network when using a wired network LAN connection.

Without authenticating, your system by default will connect to the untrusted network segment, 3580. Eventually, this segment will have Internet only access.

1. Enable 802.1x according to instructions in the article ASU Wired NAC - AutoConfig 802.1X Wired Authentication on Windows 7.

2. Right click on your network adapter (Local Area Connection Properties) icon in the Windows Taskbar and select Properties.

3. Click on the Authentication tab and select the checkbox to Enable IEEE 802.1X authentication. 

4. Under the Choose a network authentication method: dropdown, select Microsoft: Protected EAP (PEAP) from the available choices.

5. Now click Settings.

NOTE: Do not select Additional Settings.
