These are some of the topics discussed at tonight's meeting. Please comment on which you'd prefer and/or suggest new topics.
I noticed that all the tutorials on here are primarily focused on getting WSU wireless to work on linux with NetworkManager, and/ or for a specific distro. This doesn't help me much, as I am running Fedora and I need to use the wicd network manager. Wicd is much more versatile than NetworkManager and it supports the ath5k driver that I need to use for my atheros based wireless card.
So I'll walk through the steps to get WSU wireless to work with wicd. Most of the steps in this tutorial will not apply to just Fedora, so it could easily be used with any other linux distro.
This guide shows how to use the new WSU PEAP wireless deployment with Fedora 8. This guide assumes you are using Network Manager which is installed by default. If you have chosen to use a different window manager than is default you may need to take steps to launch Network manager, or you may follow the manual instructions.
Fedora doesn't appear to have a package for the CA certificates, so this guide is using the certificate bundled with the Pidgin instant messenger client. Please verify that Pidgin is installed before continuing.
I've finally managed to get the Asus EEE PC's Xandros OS to work on the wsunexus (old) wireless network using the pptp vpn. Here's how:
Go to your menu bar and click on the airport menu item producing this menu, select "WSU Wireless".
This should result in it asking for your credentials (same as my.wsu.edu).
