To setup wireless on your Ubuntu Linux device, please follow the steps below:

Note: Ubuntu, like other versions of Linux, gets frequent updates. Because of these frequent updates it is possible that your version of Ubuntu may not look exactly the same as the screenshots in this article.

1. Click on the wireless icon on the top right of the desktop. A list of networks will populate. If it doesn’t, make sure your wireless is enabled.
2. Click on the Wireless connection named asu.

3. You will want to configure the settings as they are displayed below. If you do not see the wireless security option for WPA & WPA2 Enterprise, your adapter may not support the ASU Wireless.
4. Click the icon next to “CA certificate” that says (None).

6. Double click the ssl folder.
