Return to the “Network and Sharing Center” and click on “Set up a new connection or network”.


Step 5: 

When the box appears, click “Manually connect to a wireless network”, then click next.

Step 6: 

On the next screen, make sure the following information is input exactly as shown:
– Network name: WIZABU
– Security type: WPA2-Enterprise
– Encryption type: AES
– Check “Start this connection automatically”
– Uncheck “Connect even if the network is not broadcasting”


Step 7: 

A message saying “Successfully added WIZABU” will appear. Click on “Change connection settings”.
