Linux Wireless Guide

This should work for all distros that use Network Manager Applet as their network manager. (Ubuntu, Linux Mint, Fedora, etc.)

  • Make sure that you have wireless drivers installed. You should be able to check “Enable Wireless” by right clicking on the network manager on your panel.
  • 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)
    • Leave Anonymous Identity and Domain blank
    • CA Certificate is none
    • Check the box that says “CA-certificate not needed”
    • PEAP Version should be “Automatic”
    • Inner Authentication is set to MSCHAPv2
    • Username and Password are your CCV credentials
  • You should now be connected to the wireless, and it should remember all this the next time so you’ll only have to choose CCV from the list if it doesn’t automatically connect.
  • Note that when you change your CCV password you will need to change it for this connection. 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.
