I have a problem regarding connection to my university Wi-Fi.
After clicking on Set Up Wi-Fi Network on my Curve 9300, I get a list of possible connections. When I click on the connection I typically use with my laptop, I am confronted with an array of things that I am not quite familiar with. After punching in my user name and password (in order to connect to the university Wi-Fi) and pressing connect, it says "Please specify a CA certificate." When I go to the CA Certificate: section to select a certificate, I get a long list of things. This is where I don't understand what is happening or what to do.
Could someone kindly explain to me what certain terms such as Enterprise Sub-Type, CA certificate, Inner link security, Token, Server subject, and Server SAN mean in the context of Wi-Fi security and what I could do to connect to my university Wi-Fi with my BlackBerry please? Thank you very much!
It was much easier connecting to my home Wi-Fi, as all I had to do was punch in a WEP key one time and I was set. What is difference between my home Wi-Fi and the universitiy's Wi-Fi?

I don't know if this helps, but in the list of connections, it says WPA2 Enterprise under the network name. Also, when I choose the connection, Enterprise Sub-Type: is on PEAP by default. I need my university ID and password too.
By the way, why is it different when I connect to the university network with my BlackBerry versus my laptop (just need ID and password for using laptop)?
