  4. Go to Manage Connections.
  5. Scroll down to Set Up Wi-Fi Network.
  6. Click Next.
  7. Click on Scan for Networks.
  8. Scroll down to WWUResTek-secure and click on it.
  9. Make sure Security Type is PEAP.
  10. Use your universal login for user name and password.
  11. Under CA certificate, select the WWUrestek-secure 802.1X RootCA certficate. It will be located at the bottom of the list and have a yellow question mark (not a green check or red ‘x’).

  13. If it displays Connection Successful, press Next, then Finish. You’re phone may say “Failed to connect” and ask if you want to save anyway. Say yes.
