Connect to Raven Wireless on a Personal Computer (Windows 10)

Windows 10 Raven Wireless Installer

The Raven Wireless setup for computers running Windows 10 can be confusing, so ITS has prepared a small program (an executable file) that will automatically update your settings so that you can connect to Raven Wireless.

PLEASE NOTE: Executable files are not safe to run unless you can trust the source of the file. In this case, you must sign in using your AU credentials to be able to access this file. This assures you that the file is from a valid source. If you are not comfortable running this file, the instructions for manually updating your settings are in the next section of this article.

Windows 10 Wireless Setup (802.1x authentication) Instructions

If you do not want to run the Raven Wireless Installer, the following video and written instructions will help you adjust your settings manually to connect to Raven Wireless.

Note: if you are connecting a media device (Chromecast, Roku, Apple TV, etc.) you will most likely need to use the Raven Media Network. Raven Wireless uses enterprise-level security and most personal-type devices do not support this.

  1. From the desktop, right-click the wireless icon >> Open Network & Internet settings. (On previous versions of Windows 10, it may say Open Network and Sharing Center.)
  2. Navigate to Network and Sharing Center
  3. In the Network and Sharing Center, choose Setup a new connection or network
  4. Select Manually connect to a wireless network, then Next.
  5. After entering the following information, click Next.

Network name: Raven Wireless

☑ Connect automatically when this network is in range
☐ Look for other wireless networks while connected to this network

  1. Choose a network authentication method: should be Microsoft: Protected EAP (PEAP), then choose Settings.
  2. Uncheck Verify the server's identity by validating the certificate, then choose Configure.
