Validating identity on wireless adapter
Concordia University provides wireless networking for all of its currently active faculty, staff, and registered students.
Due to the nature of Concordia's secure network, most devices must be configured before using the wireless for the first time.
Please select your device or operating system from the list in the documentation section for full configuration details.
To connect to Concordia's wireless network with a configured device, you must have a Netname account.
Please ensure that you have activated your netname before configuring your device.
Guest wireless accounts may be granted to visitors who are sponsored by a Concordia department and unable to connect via the eduroam wireless network.

Unselect 'Verify the server's identity by validating the certificate', then click 'Configure'. A pop-up window named 'EAP MSCHAPv2 Properties' will appear.
