I moved out your post to keep it a bit more clean.

I don't use connman, got bad net-speed with it for some unknown reason.
I use peasywifi.

Can you not just do

Code: Select all

kill connmand
connmand &


and then connect via connman-ui again?

all the secure connections are shown as (ieee8021x) instead of WPA2 and such ie:
"Secure connection (ieee8021x)"
"Not secure connection (none)"
"Secure connection 2 (ieee8021x)"
if i try to connect connman will either crash or do nothing and the dialog to enter the wifi password is nowhere to be found

Is that something you choose in your router or at the University?

I think connmman needs an extra config file

support for ieee802.1x wireless networks.
Connman does only support two phase authentication via config files. These config files reside in /var/lib/connman/ and are watched by the connman daemon. Unfortunatelly, connman does not support per session/user config files, so for simplicity's sake, we modify one in /var/lib/connman


[service_engineering]
Type = wifi
Name = engineering
EAP = peap
Phase2 = MSCHAPV2

checkout https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/WP ... se#connman and modify

If you don't get it to work you could try peasywifi it has PEAP support
I haven't tried it though

PWF v2.4 can build profiles for enterprise networks like eduroam using PEAP. Read the discusion here.

There are many variations of this protocol and you will need specific details for your target network. Read here and here for some examples.

Once you have made the profile, click Check and manually edit it. Or if you have a working wpa_supplicant.conf file, just drop it into the profiles folder and restart PWF.
