PostPosted: Tue 20 Nov 2012, 18:15    Post_subject:  LEAP authentication wifi
Sub_title: Need to know how to connect wirelessly w LEAP authentication
 

Hi, Guys,

A noob here, like to think of myself as a slightly-advanced beginner.

My school has wifi with LEAP authentication, WPA2 Enterprise encryption, which requires both a username and a password.

I cannot figure out how to get Puppy to connect to it.

I have searched and found a reference to a configuration file which, when edited, can address this. However, there is no clear indication within the resource of how to do it.

Can I download a client to connect to this network, or use one of the existing wireless clients? I have tried all of the wireless clients in puppy, with different computers/wireless cards, with three or four different versions of puppy. No dice.

Thanks in advance!

Thanks. I should have been more clear. That is the source that I have already consulted. Perhaps it is my noobishness, but I have looked at that README file, and it is not clear to me how to proceed; perhaps someone can clarify?

I do not see a specific edit for "LEAP", and the "catch all" example claims to be for testing purposes only, AND does not have an entry for LEAP.

I have a feeling I am simply ignorant about something simple, but I have tried to figure this out and cannot. Can someone who has succeeded with connecting in this manner please clarify? Forgive my noob ways.

Thanks!

Is this article useful?

Look for the wpa_supplicant.conf file in /etc/network-wizard/wireless/wpa_profiles.

Thank you! That looks much more helpful - I will try it out when I am back in school this week.

Cheers,
