Re: N8 refuses to connect to University EAP-PEAP PEAP network

I finally got the right certificate!

 

:smileyhappy:

 

Now it´s working!!!

 

The funny thing is that I found it by own. The IT team doesn´t know where this certificate is.

Re: N8 refuses to connect to University EAP-PEAP PEAP network

it would be good to know what you did in your instance to get the right certificate for future reference if other people are searching for similar issues.

Re: N8 refuses to connect to University EAP-PEAP PEAP network

I got the certificate in Windows 7 network settings, then I selected peap network.

 

After that, I choose security, then settings, then I double clicked on "uolcorp" that is my realm.

 

I don´t know why, but in Windows 7 the option for this certificate is not turned on.

 

I just copy this certificate to my N8 and it worked! :smileyhappy:

I need help to connect my N8 to my university WiFi; so could you please provide us with the steps step-by-step procedure of how you got the certificate from your Windows 7 and then moved it to the N8, and get the N8 use this certificate.

 

   I do have access to the university WiFi through my Windows 7 laptop, but I want to have it for my N8.

Re: N8 refuses to connect to University EAP-PEAP PEAP network

1 - Go to control Panel

 

2 - Network and Sharing Center

 

3 - Click on your peap network

 

4 - Click on "wireless properties" and then select "security"

 

5 - Choose "settings"

 

6 - Look for your certificate on that list, and double click on it.

 

7 - Choose "details" and then "copy to file"

 

8 - Click on "next" and select "DER Encoded binary X.509"

 

9 - Save the .cer file and send to your phone over bluetooth or USB

 

10 - Just open the File Manager on your phone click on the .cer file to install

 

I hope this is gonna work for you as worked for me!

Re: N8 refuses to connect to University EAP-PEAP PEAP network

Thanks igorlt78 for the info. How do you know which certificate is yours? All I can see is the list of certificates. None of them is checked, even Validate Server certificates isn't checked.

Does it mean our compant does not use any certificates for wireless network?

Re: N8 refuses to connect to University EAP-PEAP PEAP network

A plead to anyone...

Has a solution been found for EAP-PEAP authentication without Server Certificate?

I see no one talked about it on these forums after March. So is it solved of people have given up. This is something very basic every other smartphone is able to do. This is really shameful.

Re: N8 refuses to connect to University EAP-PEAP PEAP network

It is so sad,

if there is no certificate ,,, why I need to ask my IT tech to give me one ?

Why Nokia N8 can not connected like other smart phones ? 

 

I like nokia hardware but really programming software should be more simple or user friendly 

 

other phones can connect to any Wi-Fi (correct user / pass ) in one time, 

with nokia n8, you need to put user name/pass and wait , and re-click again on the Wi-Fi name to connect ...

Re: N8 refuses to connect to University EAP-PEAP PEAP network

I think you always need a certificate, if they say you need one, you just need to use one of the default ones already installed on the phone. I used a windows machine that was previously connected to know which one.

 

You're setting up your wifi connection not the best way. You can scan for wifi, but best is to go to Settings, Connectivity, Destinations and add it to the Internet destination and will auto connect after that.

Re: N8 refuses to connect to University EAP-PEAP PEAP network

Just adding my 2 cents.....After getting the certs in der format from the IT department (with .cer) extension on my laptop I used bluetooth on the laptop to push the cert to the cellphone. then open the text and it asked what the cert will be used for, I selected all the options.

 

Then selected the wifi and selected Wi-Fi security settings

 

Select EAP plug-ins settings--> then EAP-PEAP

 

1.  Selected Authority certificate which will give a list of certs go through it and select the one you just got from laptop 

 

2. Select username in use user defined without the domain  user.name

 

3. Select realm in use as user defined and then give domain DOMAIN

 

4. then select EAP-MSCHAPv2 by clicking arroe in upper right corner

 

5. Select user.name and then prompt password no and then give the password

 

that should do it     :smileyvery-happy:

Re: N8 refuses to connect to University EAP-PEAP PEAP network

Mphoza, are you using a corporate network or one of an university? In the latter case, which one?

 

In the corporate case, select „not defined“ for the authority certificate, this option is the same as „all“ as it uses all known certificates. If that does not help, you have to ask your network administrator for the certificate authority he is using. On a Apple device you are able to view the certificate, so you can ask your administrator directly for that. Or you re-read this thread to extract the certificate with the help of a Windows computer.

 

Finally, are you using a Nokia N8?
