    802.1x

      I wanted the Nook Tablet mainly to watch netflix while I'm at the gym.  But my gym is at my school, and my school uses 802.1x EAP.

       

      • EAP Method: TTLS
      • Phase 2 authentication: PAP

       

      I can log in, but then I get a little yellow caution sign in the lower left corner, and it tells me that I need to do something with WAP.

       

      How can I get this to work?  As a law student I'm at school 12 hours a day, and I'd like my tablet to be functional in the place I spend the majority of my waking hours (I have a regular nook for reading, and of course my textbooks.  I need the internet to be able to use this one).

       

      I know it's not a problem with the network - because guess what other tablet works, according to the IT people and the bookstore, which sells it?  I want to keep my nook.. it's better than the alternative.  But if I can't use it for what I bought it for then I don't see how I can.

          I searched a bit on Google about this. It seems the automatic Wifi detection works not always correct in this case.

          Try using the "Other network" option to manually put in all the correct information needed for the Wifi connection.

              I'll try this when I get to school today.  Also I meant 'MAC' not 'WAP'

               

              When I do this on my iphone/mac it downloads a certificate, do you happen to know if that's something that is only macs or if it's all devices, and if my nook is even capable of that?
