BUsecure Wireless Setup for Windows 8

Windows 8 Professional, Windows 8 and Windows 8 RT (tablets) will automatically setup correctly to connect to the secure network. Issues have arisen for those systems that are using non-standard wireless cards, these have been identified as being manufactured by Atheros. Please be aware that a number of Dell systems purchased via outside vendors such as Best Buy etc. will have a card identified as Dell but are actually manufactured by Atheros and will not connect.
