I recently upgraded my Ubuntu from 16.04 to 18.04 (clean install, full wipe). Now I can no longer connect to the corporate network at my office (perhaps related to these bugs: bug 1, bug 2). What proved to fix this issue in Ubuntu 16.04 is the answer to this question; Downgrade
wpa_supplicant to 2.1.
However, even with the linode repository, this fix can no longer be applied. There is no version for
wpa_supplicant below 2.6 to the best of my knowledge for Ubuntu 18.04.
My question is this: How can I downgrade wpa_supplicant to 2.1 for Ubuntu 18.04?
Configuration needed for corporate the wifi connection:
- Security: WPA & WPA2 Enterprise
- Authentication: Protected EAP (PEAP)
- Checkbox No CA certificate required.
- Inner authentication: MSCHAPv2
