Default Wifi Woes

Please Login to Remove!

Good morning, everyone!

I have only had my new BBBold for 72 hours now, and am trying to gain access to my university wifi network; however, they require WPA2/AES or WPA/TKIP security. In looking over the available security measures on the phone itself, I cannot find these; can anyone guide me as to how this might be accomplished? My IT people are notoriously "limited" in their ability to deal with such problems (if it isn't a G-D smartphone, it isn't officially supported).

Thanks!
Andy

When you set up the wireless network, use the "Manually Add Network" option and when you get to "Security", select Pre-Shared Key (PSK). My company uses WPA2/AES and that works fine for me.

I am having the same problem.. Universities require a username and password though I don't think we have a pre shared key...

I think the security type is PEAP or LEAP but I don't know what to enter when it comes to certificates etc.
