  • Enter your CCV username in the Identity field
  • Enter your CCV password in the Password field
  • Leave Anonymous Identity blank

  • Next left click on the network manager. You should see CCV listed. Click on it.
  • A box should appear to edit the connection settings
    • Security is set to WPA and WPA2 Enterprise
    • Authentication is set to Protected EAP (PEAP)

It should prompt when you try to connect, but if not, right click the network manager, choose “Edit Connections”, double-click the CCV wifi connection, and you can enter the new password on the “Wireless Connection Security” tab.
