How to configure WPA2 on Android devices

In order to connect your Android device to Salina's WPA2 network, you will need to install a trusted root CA certificate and then configure the wireless connection. Instructions for both of these steps are listed below:


Installing the InCommon Certificate

  1. Connect your Android device to the internet using another network (eg. the guest wireless network), then visit this web-page with your Android device.
  2. Click on the following link to download the InCommon SSL CA-bundle.
  3. Your device may ask if you want to complete the action using either “Certificate Installer” or “Certificate Manager.” Choose Certificate Installer and name the certificate whatever you want (eg. “InCommon”) and give your certificate vault a password. This is a password that is local to your Android, so don't forget it.

Configuring WPA2

  1. From your Android device's home screen, go to Settings > Wireless & Networks > Wi-Fi Settings.
  2. Although you may see k-state.wpa2 listed, don't select it. Instead, scroll down and select Add Wi-Fi Network. Fill in the requested blanks with the following information:
    • Network SSID: k-state.wpa2
    • Security: 802.1x EAP
    • EAP method: TTLS
    • Phase 2 authentication: PAP
    • CA certificate: InCommon (or whatever you named the InCommon certificate bundle you installed using the steps above)
    • User certificate: (leave unspecified)
    • Identity: <your K-State eID>
    • Anonymous Identity: (leave blank)
    • Password: <your K-State eID password>
  3. Save the settings and then click on the newly configured k-state.wpa2 network to connect.
