Removed network manager from startup apps; logged out and logged back in 2. Now, I still have work to do to clean up the mess I've made with my system.Still no dice on connecting to the university wireless though.I guess now I'll try connecting via terminal so I can see if any error messages appear.I don't have much confidence that this step was completed satisfactorily; the names of the files didn't match exactly, so I had to apply some guesswork.Anyways, that doesn't (to me) seem to be the biggest problem-- Once I try to connect, nothing happens for a bit, and then a popup window appears saying something along the lines of 'You need a username and password to connect to this network. My username and password (both which I know are correct) are already in the proper fields; I press 'connect' and the process repeats, indefinitely as far as I can tell. I found a similar thread from '08 but it didn't have a solution affiliated with it. PS- I'm busy this week, and often won't be on campus/ need internet, so I'll likely be pretty slow to try solutions.(Windows connects with no problems.) Network's specs are as follows (asterisks demarcate censored info): I followed instructions I found on my school's website for Ubuntu, although it was for 8.10.
Basically all it had me do was download the CA certificate from Global Sign for use when trying to connect to the network.
As soon as I plugged it in and saw that sexy display come to life I was hooked.
I whipped out the one page quick install guide and proceeded to immediately log into the router’s interface.
changed my /etc/network/interfaces to: auto lo iface lo inet loopback auto wlan0 iface wlan0 inet dhcp wireless-mode Managed wpa-ssid **censored** wpa-ap-scan 1 wpa-proto RSN WPA wpa-pairwise CCMP TKIP wpa-group CCMP TKIP wpa-key-mgmt WPA-EAP wpa-eap PEAP wpa-identity **censored** wpa-password **censored** wpa-phase1 fast_provisioning=1 wpa-pac-file /home/kyle/Downloads/chain2.cer4. I still would like to use network manager to manage my other connections.
I need to make sure I haven't screwed my other connections up with this fix.
