Configuring T430 to Connect to Campus WiFi

2019-07-11, 12:12 PM
I'm a college student. I use a T430. I can connect to the internet just fine from my house, but I can't connect to WiFi at school. I can connect just fine from a Windows VM, but I'd rather not do that. My storage is limited, and Windows is slow imo. Is the connectivity a driver issue? What do I need to do to connect? I've talked to Tech Support at the college already, but he knew very little about Linux and wasn't helpful. I don't know any other students who run Linux. Currently I'm running Fedora 30, but I've tried and failed to connect on Fedora, Ubuntu, and Manjaro. Thank you for your support!

Well most people aren't experienced with Linux. I used Ubuntu on one of my desktops and it was a big mess for me. Sometimes resetting the router helps. Try looking into the driver settings or reinstall the wifi driver.

Some things that might help others help you:  what exactly are you trying, and what happens? Do you "see" the SSID?  Can you select it?  Enter a pass code? What happens then?  Error messages?  Something else? Anything in the log? etc, etc...
