Windows - Automatic Wireless Configuration

 

There is an issue that occurs when Windows users attempt to connect to MC3WAVES using the standard wireless network connection option. Occasionally, when you choose to connect to the MC3WAVES network, your computer will continuously prompt you to enter your username and password.
