    WiFi prompt for additional credentials


    I need some help. On Windows 7 when you were connected to a Wireless Network that required additional credentials, there would be this nice notification. When you clicked it, it would popup the authentication box, allowing a user to enter their credentials.

    In Windows 10 however, there is no notification (that I can find how to turn on). If I click the Wireless icon in the taskbar, the credential box will appear.

    The reason I would like/need the notification to appear is these particular systems are going to be student used, and I want a visual way for them to know to enter their credentials rather than just tapping the WiFi icon.

    Any help/suggestions or scripts etc. that you all know of to make this happen?

    Thanks

    Sounds like either a Captive portal or VPN. It helps to know if this is your network or a public one.

    This is a work network. There isn't a Captive Portal or VPN. Connection to the WiFi requires AD username and password to authenticate. The authentication method to the Wireless is PEAP, using EAP-MSCHAP v2.

    If work, that means that they are using specific safeguards to keep people from hooking up rogue devices and leaching bandwidth. It has nothing to do with the Operating System. It has to do with the IT group always thinking ten steps ahead of the users.

    I think you're missing the point entirely. This is not the IT group thinking ahead of the users. This is a default notification in Windows 7 that let you know the network you were connecting to required additional authentication.

    In my case the Wireless Network is using PEAP as the encryption method. I have about 60 Windows 7 Machines that do this without any special settings in place. What I have noticed is that Windows 10, doesn't notify you that the network requires additional authentication, even if you have "auto-connect" enabled. You have to click the Wi-Fi icon to get the authentication to popup. I am trying to make this simple with a big noticeable notification, rather than modifying the desktop background to tell someone to "click here to connect"

    Again if any connection made through a private network or VPN requires certain credentials, you need to talk to the IT group.
