Ubuntu – How to connect to WPA2/PEAP/MSCHAPv2 enterprise wifi networks that don’t use a CA_Certificate, like Eduroam


My university uses WPA2 Enterprise encryption for students to login their wireless. In NetworkManager I have keyed in everything that they needed

  • Security : WPA & WPA2 Enterprise
  • Authentication : Protected EAP
  • CA certificate is not needed
  • PEAP version : Automatic
  • Inner
    authentication : MSCHAPv2
  • Username and Password are correct.

Everytime I try to connect, I get a window asking me to input my password over and over again

There is a bug report here: https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/network-manager/+bug/1104476

A workaround is to remove the line


from the configuration file found in /etc/NetworkManager/system-connections/
