first check for hardware and software updates, including drivers. Once all updates are installed, again configure Buccaneer as the default wireless network by following the Non-Intra Windows instructions.
You need to choose the appropriate wireless network each time you log in.
This is not a supported method for connecting to Buccaneer. However, a tutorial for configuring the Intel PROSet wireless client is posted at the following link: PROSet Wireless. PLEASE NOTE: The Intel PROSet software client requires you to enter your PirateID/passphrase as part of the configuration. Since passphrases are changed every 90 days, you will ALWAYS need to change the wireless configuration on your laptop after you change your passphrase but BEFORE you shut down the computer. Otherwise, you will be unable to connect to the wireless network.

Personal systems that you use on campus cannot be added to the INTRA domain, only ECU systems.
The wireless settings stored in Intel PROSet do not transfer to the Windows wireless client; however, those settings are still available in the Intel client.
If you receive any one of the following messages:

Windows wireless configuration is the supported method of connecting to the security-enabled wireless network, Buccaneer. If you attempt to disable the Windows configuration of your wireless network by clicking the "Use Windows to configure my wireless network settings" check box, you will receive a message, "At least one of your changes was not applied successfully to the wireless configuration," and the setting will not apply. To change to the Intel PROSet wireless management client, you will need to right-click on the Intel PROSet icon in the System Tray and select, "Use Intel PROSet/Wireless" or "Open the Intel PROSet client" and click the "Enable Intel PROSet/Wireless" button. Note: Windows management of wireless is the supported method of connecting to the new Buccaneer network.
If you connect to an ECU workstation, file share or other server resource (such as Piratedrive) using a mapped network drive, you will need to connect to these resources from the security-enabled wireless network, Buccaneer.
