OSU_Secure Wireless on Linux (Unix)

PLEASE NOTE:

The OSU Computer Helpdesk does not officially support Linux devices on the secure wireless network. Most should work fine if configured properly, but if any questions arise, they should be directed to the Linux community (there is a Linux Users Group on campus as well). The details on this page are only suggestions that have been reported to work in the past.

The general settings for the OSU Secure network are as follows:

  • SSID: OSU_Secure
  • Security: WPA2 Enterprise
  • EAP Method: PEAP (PEAPv0/EAP-MSCHAPv2)
  • Key Type: AES (or automatic)
  • Phase2 Type: MSCHAPv2
  • Domain (If required): ONID
  • Username: ONID Username
  • Password: ONID Password

If you are unable to get the default wireless manager to work, users have had success switching to WICD as their wireless manager.

For help installing WICD for your flavor of Linux, see the WICD Downloads Page. The top of this page also provides some basic troubleshooting steps to start using it.

NOTE: Once you install WICD, you will have to uninstall or stop your other wireless manager to use it.
