My school asks us to do this to connect to the wifi in the ca-certificate

Search for the line:

system-ca-certs=true

Change this line to:

system-ca-certs=false

The problem is that I cannot find this line in the ca-certificate.

I can't connect to the network. A dialogue box pops up every time asking for my user id and password for the school wifi, I enter the right credentials but it doesn't work.

P.S There is no problem in connecting to my home wifi network.

these are [the instructions given by my school][1] for connecting to the wifi

The settings are:

  • Security Type: WPA2 Enterprise
  • Username: ldap-Username
  • Password: ldap-Password
  • Authentication: PEAP
  • PEAP version: automatic
  • Inner authentication: MSCHAPV2
  • ca-certificate: none

Note: For Ubuntu 14.04 users-

The ca-certificate settings has to be changed to false. This may be done in the following way:

Open the file in an editor of your choice: /etc/NetworkManager/system-connections/IITB-Wireless

Search for the line:

system-ca-certs=true

Change this line to:

system-ca-certs=false
