This document is written using a “vanilla” configuration of Android, any user of this guide should be
aware that third party programs may interfere with configuring the wireless network. This guide is
intended as a “best effort” setup. The steps detailed in this guide have been tested and working on
Android version 2.2, using the built in Wireless utility. Due to the nature of wireless networking,
additional wireless drivers and/or troubleshooting may be needed, but this would have to be evaluated
on a case-by-case basis and is to be understood by client and support personnel that all work is done as
“best effort”.
