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. We do provide the information you will need to configure your device to connect:

  • Network SSID
    WIRELESS-PITTNET
  • 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.
