- Then set the Domain to “ad.okstate.edu” when there is a section for CA Certificates, select “Use System Certificates” and.
- When your unit doesn’t have a “Use System Certificates” option, you can pick “Do not Validate” instead (but know that this might make you susceptible to a person at the center assault, so make sure you are linking in a place for which you expect you’ll discover the EDUROAM service).
- It blank if you see a field called “Anonymous Identity”, just leave. All of those other choices ought to be kept inside their standard settings.
In the event your products support WPA2-enterprise encryption (smart phones, laptops, & most tablets) we suggest you connect those products to EDUROAM.

OSURESLIFE is a network that is new doesn’t need encryption. It really is just obtainable in the Residential Halls and Apartments (where Wi-Fi is present), it shall maybe perhaps not work throughout the remainder of campus.
For those who have devices you desire to hook up to Wi-Fi it doesn’t help WPA2-enterprise encryption but does support available networks (such as for example smart television’s, Roku/AppleTV, kindle/nook e-readers, game consoles, etc. ), you are able to register them to get in touch towards the OSURESLIFE system.
