Windows 7 Wireless Password Reset

No One at Texas Tech University or from Anywhere Else Should Ask For Your Password

After you have changed your eRaider password, there are several issues that will need to be addressed in order to prevent your eRaider account from being locked out. Since Windows may try to automatically access a variety of network resources (such as TechShare, wireless network, etc.) with your old eRaider password, the first thing you should do is reboot your computer. This will clear most saved passwords, and will cause Windows to prompt you for your new password the next time you log in. After rebooting, follow the steps below to ensure your account will not be locked out:

To change your Windows 7 wireless password:

STEP 1:  Click Start -> Control Panel.

STEP 2:  Click Network and Internet.

STEP 3:  Click Network and Sharing Center.

STEP 4:  Click Manage wireless networks.

STEP 5:  Right-click on your "TTUnet" wireless connection and select Properties.

STEP 6:  Click the Security tab. Uncheck "Cache user information for subsequent connections to this network", then click OK.

STEP 7:  Open your "TTUnet" wireless connection Properties again, then re-check "Cache user information for subsequent connections to this network."

STEP 8:  Click OK on all preceding windows.

STEP 9:  A notification bubble will appear that reads "Additional information is required to connect to TTUnet. Click to provide additional information and connect". Click somewhere inside the bubble.

STEP 10:  When the Windows Security prompt appears, type the following and click .

  • User name: ttu\your eRaider username
  • Password: your eRaider password
