When I come in each morning and occasionally through the day, I get the message pasted below:
Additionally Information is needed to connect ….
Review Network Connections
- Access Control Panel \ Network and Internet \ Network Connections
Our display looks like this:
On the Wireless Network Connection, we can see the message “Attempting to authenticate”.
Review Wireless Networks
- Access Control Panel \ Network and Internet \ Manage Wireless Networks
- Select the Wireless Network (that we are being prompted to connect to )
- Review the Network
Manage Wireless Networks
Wireless Network Properties – Connection
Wireless Network Properties – Security
The problem is the we are currently setup to auto connect to the Wireless Network.
As background, systems continually poll to see whether automatically configured Networks are nearby.
And, of course, it is once I come to work and dock my laptop each morning.
The auto-connect will happen in most cases. But, in our case, we are setup with two-factor authentication; smart card and pin.
And, that is the source of the message “Additional Information is needed ….”
Un-check “Connect automatically when this network is in range”.
