Can't connect to eduroam-like Wi-Fi conn

Hey. I am struggling to connect to an wireless network of the university. It’s like those WPA2/PEAP/MSCHAPv2 enterprise wifi networks that don’t use a CA_Certificate.

To connect, it requires my college enrollment number and the password of the university system. On the mobile phone it connects normally, but in the Linux (openSUSE in this case) it keeps requesting me the credentials over and over again.

I don’t know which command I should print to bring here more info. Ask if needed.

Machine info:

OS: openSUSE Tumbleweed x86_64
Host: Aspire A514-54 V1.28
Kernel: 6.3.2-1-default
Packages: 2421 (rpm), 6 (flat
Shell: zsh 5.9
GNOME 44.1
CPU: 11th Gen Intel i7
GPU: Intel TigerLake-LP GT2

FWIW, a similar recent thread here…

You could start with describing what program you use to establish connection and how you configured it.

Ok. I used the Settings program (I’m using GNOME) and went to the “Wi-Fi” option. As soon I clicked to connect, it showed me to select some options, and I chose as I described on the question: WPA2 Enterprise, PEAP, internal authentication as MSCHAPv2, no CA_CERTIFICATE and put my username (college enrollment number) and the password.

So you are apparently using NetworkManager. You could try test packages from the bug report buried in the middle of the linked topic:
