1. go to mozilla, go to a web page, log into ichain.
2. you're done.

at least, I'm pretty sure this works.

It does,
make sure wireless is enabled
Make sure you're connected to "drew"
Open any web browser (preferably Mozilla) and log into ichain
--If not prompted to login, you can go to Http://wlan.drew.edu to login to the wireless network
Browse to any website to make sure it worked & you're connected
Now start aim and login

Basially all you really need to do right now is to go to a website that is outside drew that makes you login to authenticate yourself to the wireless network. I usually use google.com. Then once you put in your login information and get through to google you should be able to start AIM and login without a problem.

If you have the proxy set up, then it bypasses wireless authentication because as far as the firewall which protects the wireless network is concerned, you are not actually hitting an off-campus site.

Basically, the issue is that the system we are using to do the wireless authentication doesn't integrate at all with the system we are using to protect all of our other web applications. We're evaluating solutions that would be better integrated and also authenticate you seamlessly if you have a Drew standard PC and log into the network.

Rather than messing with the proxy settings in Mozilla, try opening up IE (which normally doesn't have the proxy turned on by default on our standard PCs) and go to https://google.com/. This should cause a login dialog to popup. After you've logged in, you can close IE and everything else should start working for you.
