I recently got Ubuntu 18.04, but it doesn't connect to my school wifi. Details:

  • WPA/WPA2 Enterprise
  • PEAP
  • MSCHAPv2
  • Credentials are correct

I've seen others saying to remove system-ca-certs=true from the network configuration file found in /etc/NetworkManager/system-connections but I can't find that line anywhere. Is it because I haven't upgraded from 16.04 to 18.04 but got 18.04 clean? Or anything else? Is there another solution or a patch?

I have this same issue, and have tried many suggestions online to fix it. I believe this is something that the network administrators specify.
My solution was just to install Windows in VirtualBox and use that to sign into the network, and then I am able to access it in Ubuntu.
Messy and not an ideal solution but it works.
