FAQs

 Why can't I select "uwf-argo-air" in the Networking box?

Selecting uwf-argo-air from the Networking box will cause the computer to attempt to connect to ArgoAir without submitting the proper ArgoNet credentials. This will cause it to stay in a "Connecting" state. Once set up, selecting uwf-argo-air in the Networking box will allow the computer to send the proper credentials.
