This is a walkthrough for setup on the SWBTS wireless network at Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary. This walkthrough was performed using Windows Vista Business Edition. Other versions of Windows Vista may have slight differences but should have the same process overall.

The username should be your first and middle initials followed by your last name, and your password (by default) is your student ID. You will want to leave the login domain blank. Check the save box at the bottom if you want these credentials to be stored.
