  1. Any chance of putting up Windows 8 instructions?

  2. Or Windows Vista for that matter, Had so many people come in and ask why they can't connect on vista.

  3. WindowsPhone does not accept client certificates with .crt extension please make sure oneNet is distributing  client certificates with .cer extension as well, otherwise  WindowsPhone users will have to enter their credentials whenever they move out of range the active Wifi hot-spot they connected, it seems sessions are not persistent and without client certificate you will have to authenticate yourself against each wifi hotspot.

  4. On newer versions of Android, use the following additional settings to connect to OneNet Wifi:

    • CA Certificate: Use system certificates
    • Domain:

    This ensures the connection remains private.
