Thread: Cannot connet using WPA-Enterprise

    Default Cannot connet using WPA-Enterprise

    Hi, I am facing an issue connecting to WPA Enterprise network using a CA Root Cert.
    I have traced it to a bug report here
    https://bugs.kde.org/show_bug.cgi?id=209673
    Any idea on when the fix is going to get push?

    Did you read all the comments, esp the last(See posts May 2, 2011)?
    According to the last few comments, someone has written a patch that's likely ready for testing.

    Recommend looking for the patch in Factory, if you can't find it maybe try to contact the author(s) of the patch.

    And, there seems to be a number of workarounds people have discovered, too... one which might work for you...

    HTH,

    As a work around, you might want to try using the gnome network manager applet:
    Gave up Knetworkmanager. Made Networkmanager-GNOME work on KDE4!
    openSUSE Leap 15.4 Beta; KDE Plasma 5.24.4;
    testing Tumbleweed.

    Without actually having made such a change,
    It should be noted that for whatever reason Knetworkmanager has been very slow to adopt changes which have been implemented in the Gnome version (supposedly the codebase is the same).

    IP Spoofing - I've read that the Gnome version displays a "Clone" tab which actually supports entering a custom MAC address. Knetworkmanager does not implement this function but you can follow these steps to spoof:

    - click on the knetworkmanager applet, then click on "Enable Wireless" to clear the box and <disable> wireless.
    - Run the following command

    Code:
    ifconfig interface hw ether customMACaddress
    eg
    $ ifconfig wlan0 hw ether 00:13:32:4A:CC:34

    - Click on your Knetworkmanager applet tray icon and re-enable your wireless
    - Check your handiwork by running $ifconfig

    The setting is not persistent, it's effective only during the current User session (will not survive a logout or reboot)

    IPv6 support - I've read that the Gnome applet displays an IPv6 tab which supports IPv6 configuration (my guess is that its functionality is similar to IP spoofing). Does not exist in Knetworkmanager, in fact according to some stuff I Googled it looks like KDE may be discussing inclusion only this past month.
