Change the user name and password according to the template below. wpa_supplicant.conf is a configuration file that should only be readable by root, it contains your user name and password in clear text. We recommend that you use a graphical wrapper so you don't have to save your password in the configuration file.

---------- wpa_supplicant.conf -----------

update_config=1

eapol_version=1

ap_scan=1 fast_reauth=1

# data-irt: WPA+RADIUS
network={
ssid="eduroam"
key_mgmt=WPA-EAP
eap=TTLS
identity="username@hig.se" <---- Username+ @hig.se password="passwd" <---- Password ca_cert="/etc/cert/eduroam.pem" phase2="auth=PAP"
} ---------- wpa_supplicant.conf -----------

Use the following script to connect or run wpa_supplicant separately.

------------- /etc/init.d/wlan ----------
#!/bin/sh

killall dhclient
/usr/local/sbin/wpa_supplicant -ieth1 -c/etc/wpa_supplicant.conf -Dipw & sleep 5
dhclient eth1
------------- /etc/init.d/wlan ----------
