Do NOT check the "Use my Windows user account" checkbox. enter your UW-Platteville username and password, click OK.

5. You may be asked "Continue connecting?". Select Connect to continue. If your UW-Platteville NetID and password were entered correctly, you will see that the wording under "UWPlatt" has changed to "Connected, secured". This means you have successfully connected to the UWPlatt wireless network. 

NOTE: If you do not see "Connected, secured", or if you are still not able to connect to the internet, please verify that your UW-Platteville NetID and password were input correctly. If they were entered correctly, and you are still unable to connect to the network, please contact the ITS Help Desk using the information listed below.
