Wireless - Manual Configuration for Android

This article explains how to set up your Android device to use the uchicago-secure wireless network.

Your Android device must be Wi-Fi capable and running OS 2.1 or later in order to use the uchicago-secure network.

Note: Due to variations in Android devices, not every Android-based device will work in the same way, therefore IT Services cannot guarantee every device can be made to work. We hope as the Android OS evolves, this will not be the case.

  1. From the Android Home screen, tap Menu then tap Settings.


  2. Tap Wireless and network and then tap Wi-Fi settings.



  3. Tap Wi-Fi to turn-on wireless (if not already on).


  4. Under the list of Wi-Fi networks, tap uchicago-secure.


  5. You will then be prompted for some login/credential information.



  6. Select the following settings:
    1. EAP method: PEAP
    2. Phase 2 authentication: MSCHAPv2
    3. CA certificate: unspecified
    4. User certificate: unspecified


  7. Scroll down further and you will see the input boxes for the credentials.
    1. Identity: <your CNetID>
    2. Anonymous Identity: leave it blank


  8. Tap Next (On the keyboard portion of your screen)
  9. Wireless Password: <your CNet password>
  10. Tap Done (On the keyboard portion of your screen)
  11. Tap Connect.
  12. Wait about 10-15 seconds while your Android acquires an IP address, after which you will then be connected.
