With Linux being an open source operating system, each installation may be slightly different. This is a guide showing Ubuntu 10.10. The steps in this guide may be different from OS to OS but the settings are the same. These instructions are intended to assist with WiFi configuration for the majority of Linux installations, but there have been instances where some Linux devices will not connect to CCS Net.
Description/Steps for Resolution
Step One - Launch Network Settings
From your device, click on the network icon in the task bar near the lower right of the screen.
Step Two - Select CCS Net
If you are in range of a CCS wireless access point, your Linux device should recognize the CCS Net wireless network and show it as a connection option in the Wi-Fi settings. If you do not see it, then you likely need to be closer to a wireless access point. Once it is available, choose CCS Net from the list displayed.
Step Three - Define Network Settings
The next dialog box is where you define the network settings. Under the Authentication drop-down field, select Protected EAP (PEAP), and under the Inner authentication drop-down field select MSCHAPv2.
Step Four - Enter your credentials
Within the same window, scroll down to the Username and Password fields and enter your CCS network username in the Identity field and password in the Password field (same ones you use for lab computers).
Students should add @bigfoot.spokane.edu after their username.
Faculty and staff should enter one of the following after their username, depending on which domain they belong to:
Step Five - Connect to the network
When all your settings are entered, click on the Connect button.
Step Six - Ignore Certificate warning
When you get this final screen, you can click the Ignore button.
You should now be connected to CCS Net.
