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”.
