Networking, Wireless, How to manually set up IllinoisNet on the Android OS
Manually setting up a connection to IllinoisNet on an Android device is a two step process. First you need to download a wireless certificate, and then you need to configure your settings.
Note: Chromebooks won't need a certificate.
Note: Android 7.0 OS devices have had some trouble with the Certificate. If that is the case the setting "do not validate" should work.
- Download the Certificate to your phone from http://go.illinois.edu/wificert
- Go to Settings, security, credentials, “Install from Storage”
- Navigate the folder structure until you find the certificate you downloaded and import it
- Name the Certificate "IllinoisNetWireless"
- If prompted for Credential Usage” please select “Wireless”
Configure your settings
- Network SSID = IllinoisNet
- Security = Enterprise 802.1x
