csc-wireless no longer exists. Members are advised to use eduroam or uw-unsecured.


Rosetta Stone

Linux

netcfg

Toss this into /etc/network.d/, making sure you edit identity and password. sudo netcfg eduroam

CONNECTION='wireless'
INTERFACE=wlan0
SECURITY='wpa-configsection'
IP='dhcp'
CONFIGSECTION='
    ssid="eduroam"
    proto=RSN
    key_mgmt=WPA-EAP
    pairwise=CCMP
    group=CCMP
    eap=PEAP
    #anonymous_identity="anonymous"
    identity="userid@uwaterloo.ca"
    password="hunter2"
    ca_cert="/usr/share/ca-certificates/mozilla/GlobalSign_Root_CA.crt"
    phase2="auth=MSCHAPV2"
    priority=1'

wicd

Toss this into /etc/wicd/encryption/templates/ and edit /etc/wicd/encryption/templates/active to include a line with eduroam.

name = Eduroam UW
author = Steven She
version = 1
require username *Username password *Password
-----
ctrl_interface=/var/run/wpa_supplicant
network={
    ssid="$_ESSID"
    scan_ssid="$_SCAN"
    proto=RSN
    key_mgmt=WPA-EAP
    pairwise=CCMP
    group=CCMP
    eap=PEAP
    identity="$_USERNAME"
    password="$_PASSWORD"
    ca_cert="/usr/share/ca-certificates/mozilla/GlobalSign_Root_CA.crt"
    phase2="auth=MSCHAPV2"
}

The previous setup has been archived for posterity.
