and then click Connect
If you are prompted to enter a username and password, enter your campus username and

You will then see a Windows Security Alert stating that the credentials provided by
the server could not be validated. This is because your computer requires your permission
to add the Root CA (Certificate Authority) as a trusted anchor. Click the arrow next
to expand the details.
Confirm that the Radius Server listed is ias.csusm.edu and that the Root CA is AddTrust External CA Root. If so, click Connect.
Note: In general, you need to be very careful about accepting certificates with errors.
When you get these warnings, we encourage you to ask questions and take the time to
verify that the certificate is valid. People who steal data are successful in part
because users tend to just click on the “Accept” button without reading the details!
You should now be connected to the csusm-students
network. You can confirm this by clicking on the
wireless icon again. You should see the word Connected
next to the csusm-students
If you are having problems connecting to the network or need assistance please contact
