Username and password to connect [Solved]

Postby nightliz » Mon Mar 22, 2010 19:41

Hi, everyone! I recently installed Sabayon, and just yesterday I got my GUI working.

I can connect to the internet wirelessly on unauthenticated networks and on my home network, which uses WPA2 and a PSK. However, I do not know how to connect to my school's network. Their settings, pulled from their website, are
Operating Mode/Type - "Network (Infrastructure)"
Authentication/Association - "WPA2 - Enterprise" & Data Encryption - "AES"
Authentication Type - "PEAP"
Authentication Protocol - "MSCHAP v2"
User Credentials/Login - EID Username & Password
Roaming Identity/Anonymous & Domain - "Leave Blank"
Validate Server Certificate – "Equifax Secure Certificate Authority"
TCP/IP protocol for Wireless LAN card - obtain configuration automatically from DHCP server


I am using wicd.

You are really lucky I guess :)

Are you sure that NetworkManager is not running?
Check that it is not run by default using (as root):
Code: Select all
rc-update | grep NetworkManager

(it should output something if NetworkManager is started)

Check also that NetworkManager is not running using:
Code: Select all
ps aux | grep NetworkManager


[EDIT] Sorry, I misunderstood your problem :roll: , which is exactly the problem?
There should be an option available for WPA Enterprise in Wicd, I am now installing it...

... Or you could try NetworkManager :mrgreen:

If I remember correctly, there was WPA 1/2 (Passpprase) and WPA 1/2 (PSK). To be able to connect to my home wireless, I followed viewtopic.php?f=52&t=19801&start=10&hilit=wicd#p113076 That's why I am using wicd atm.

Ok, I now have Wicd installed, did you try to connect using the:
PEAP with TKIP/MSCHAPV2 method in the connection properties window?
