UNR-WPA: Android

The UNR-WPA signal will be removed on December 28, 2016. It is being replaced by eduroam, a worldwide academic WiFi signal. Please consider switching over at your earliest convenience.

There is a lot of variation in the way that Android phones connect to any wireless signal. Each phone manufacturer can change the appearance of the settings. However, although the screenshots below may not appear exactly as you see them, the contents should still be the same.

The screenshots below were taken on a Samsung Galaxy SII running Android 4.0 (Ice Cream Sandwich). Any device running Android 2.3 (Gingerbread) and above should be able to connect to the UNR-WPA signal (unless the manufacturer has removed significant capabilities from the device).

  1. Access the phone's Settings and enter the Wi-Fi section.
  2. From the list of available wireless networks select UNR-WPA.Android Select UNR-WPA
  3. A long list of settings will appear. Change the configuration so that it matches the following:
    Android Wireless Configuration
    • EAP Method: PEAP
    • Phase 2 Authentication: MSCHAPV2
    • Identity: Your NetID username
    • Password: Your NetID password
    • Everything else can be left as their defaults
  4. Click on Connect

Your device should now successfully connect to the UNR-WPA signal.Android Wireless ConnectedIf you have issues connecting to the UNR-WPA signal, please see our Wireless Troubleshooting section.
