Using IWD with YRDSB Wi-Fi

14 Sep 2021 · 1 min read

The iNet Wireless Daemon (iwd) is a lightweight and stable Wi-Fi manager for Linux systems. However, some configuration is needed for it to work properly on WPA Enterprise (802.1X) networks. For YRDSB:

Create the file with the following contents at /var/lib/iwd/<ssid>.8021x

[Security]EAP-Method=PEAPEAP-Identity=<username>EAP-PEAP-Phase2-Method=MSCHAPV2EAP-PEAP-Phase2-Identity=<username>EAP-PEAP-Phase2-Password=<password>[Settings]AutoConnect=true

…and then connect to the network normally.

iwctl station wlan0 connect YRDSB-S
