I'm relatively new to linux/ubuntu. I'm trying to connect my laptop to my work wireless and have been unsuccessful; it just keeps asking for the name and password over and over. I had the same problem when I was using windows 7 and was able to get it it working by installing Cisco peap module which added "cisco" peap as an authentication option in the wireless settings. I looked around and was unable to find that for linux. Does anyone know a fix or way around this? Lan works fine as does connecting to open wifi.



Please click the Network Manager icon and select 'Edit Connections.' Under Wi-Fi Security, select 'WPA & WPA2 Enterprise.' There, you may select Protected EAP (PEAP). Fill in your details and connect.

  • How do I find this file? I'm used to windows here:) – Daniel C Oct 15 '15 at 14:34
  • You will edit the file; from a terminal: gksudo gedit /etc/NetworkManager/system-connections/<your_network> Of course, substitute the actual name of the network you are attempting to connect to. Remove the line in question; save and close the text editor. Restart Network Manager: sudo service network-manager restart. Now can you connect? – chili555 Oct 15 '15 at 14:46
  • I don't see "system-ca-cert=true" in the list – Daniel C Oct 15 '15 at 16:00
