Device: BlackBerry Curve 8900
Operating System: OS v188.8.131.52, .231
This was tested on OS v184.108.40.206 and .231 on an 8900, but there's no reason why it shouldn't be the same on most newer BB phones. The main problem with connecting to BeaverNet is simply that the phone does not know to choose the Thawte Premium CA certificate (in fact, that's the only change I made on my existing WiFi settings).
Navigate to Manage Connections
Turn WiFi on (if it's off).
- Select Set Up Wi-Fi Network.
- Select Scan for Networks.
- Choose Caltech BeaverNet.
Enter your access.caltech username and password.
This is optional at this stage -- all you need is for the phone to know of the WiFi access point.
- At this point your phone should know of BeaverNet but not be able to connect.
- Go back to Manage Connections -> Wi-Fi Options.
- Highlight Caltech BeaverNet, press the menu key (the 7-dot BlackBerry logo) and choose Edit.
Wi-Fi Profile (most of these should already be set):
- Name: Caltech BeaverNet
- SSID: Caltech BeaverNet
- Security Type: PEAP
- Check/enter your user name and password.
- CA Certificate: Add Trust External CA Root
- Inner Link Security: AUTO
- Token: <None selected>
- Check "Automatically obtain IP address and DNS".
- Uncheck "Allow inter-access point handover" and "Prompt before connection".
- Save your settings and go back to the home screen -- you should now (or very shortly) be WiFi connected (and UMA enabled).
- If the phone does not connect, turn WiFi off and then back on. If that fails, check your username/password.
