There is an established bug for WPA Enterprise wi-fi networks:
In the past few days a fix to the wpasupplicant package has been
proposed that requires the user to enable the precise-proposed
repository (see comment #109 in the above bug report/discussion). My
If I follow the wiki instructions for enabling the precise-proposed
repository, what happens to my computer when the fix is released as an
official update? Will I need to disable the precise-proposed repository?
The laptop runs ubuntu 12.04.
My wife has just started as a mature(!?!) student at St Johns college in
Durham university. The university network uses the aforementioned WPA
Enterprise encryption system. All other students on her course use
either Windows or Macs and they have, with a little struggle, manged to
connect to the university network. My wife's ubuntu laptop is the only
machine that has, so far, failed to establish a connection. I will not
be able to check if the fix has worked until I go into college tonight.
Are there any other Durham students on the mailing list, or students of
other academic institutions, that have had this problem with their
university's wi-fi network?
In the frozen north.
