won't connect to campus wifi
I've been trying to connect ot my college wifi for the past 2 weeks or so, the IT guys are no help since they say android is unsupported. I've tried to figure out what was going on but to no avail. When i try to connect to my college wifi it says the network is secured with WEP, but this is not so. When looking at the iphone setup instructions, it says that the college uses WPA enterprise wifi. When i try to manually to add a wifi network, entering the network SSID, username and password, and selecting 802.1x enterprise security and and putting in TTLS and PAP authentication it says the network is not in range but remembered. I've verified that all the security settings are correst, but i still can't connect to the wifi. I've successfully connected to the wifi with my laptop and haven't had any problems so it's definetly not the college's fault. Please help.

This is a known issue with all Android phones. 802.1x is not technically supported even though the option is there. There is supposed to be a fix by editing your wpa.supplicant file but you can only do this if you are rooted and it has not worked for me. I can track down that process if you are rooted and would like to give it a try. This has been a huge problem with Android since day 1, I work in the I.T dept for Raleigh City Govt. and this one thing has kept us from deploying Android devices City wide.
