  • Go to 'Control Panel' -> 'Network and Sharing Center' -> 'Manage Wireless Networks' (look at the left side of the window).

  • Right click on 'Titan WiFi' and then the 'Security' tab.  Now go to 'Advanced Settings'.  Check 'Specify authentication mode:'.  Make sure that 'Computer authentication' is selected.  Click 'OK'.  Click 'OK' again.
  • Turn the laptop wireless back on.   Make sure that the laptop has selected 'Titan WiFi' for the wireless.
  • If there is a pop-up that ask to trust the certificate with a 'Connect' or 'Terminate' option, select 'Connect'.
  • If there are still problems connecting after doing all the above steps, connect to 'Titan WiFi Guest', with the laptop, open a browser, have the captive portal login pop up.  Then without signing in, connect back to 'Titan WiFi'.
