PittNet Wi-Fi: Connect with Mobile Devices or Linux

Pitt IT cannot provide instructions to configure Linux devices, smartphones, or other mobile devices to connect to Wireless PittNet or Wireless-PittNet-Fast. We do provide the information you will need to configure your device to connect:

  • Network SSID
    WIRELESS-PITTNET or WIRELESS-PITTNET-FAST
  • Security Type
    WPA2-Enterprise
  • Encryption Type
    AES
  • Authentication Method
    PEAP
    EAP-MSCHAPv2
  • Certificate
    No CA Certificate (select option if available)

Note: After settings have been changed, some Linux devices, smartphones, or other mobile devices require a restart.

Compatible Devices

  • Personal Digital Assistants (PDAs)
  • Smart phones
  • iPhones
  • Laptop computers running the Linux operating system
  • Laptop computers that use a third-party wireless client (for example, an Intel client or a Gateway client)

Incompatible Devices

  • Bluetooth equipment - Bluetooth uses a different type of wireless signaling than Wireless PittNet. Both exist in the 2.4 GHz frequency range; using them in the same location may negatively affect wireless network performance.
