Connecting Ubuntu To Enterprise WPA/WPA2 Wireless Networks

I had difficulty connecting to my university secure Wi-Fi network through Ubuntu 13.1. Basically, I kept getting a CA certificate error. The solution was remarkably simple for me. I only had to manually change the “Authentication” to Protected EAP (PEAP). Full Wi-Fi Security connection settings as follows:

Security: WPA & WPA2 Enterprise

Authentication: Protected EAP (PEAP)

Anonymous identity: (blank)

CA certificate: ca-certificates.crt (located in File System-etc-ssl-certs)

PEAP version: Automatic

Inner authentication: MSCHAPv2

May not be this simple for all people, see also here.
