Thread: tryn to connect to college wi-fi

    Default tryn to connect to college wi-fi
    i'm trying to use my college's wifi.. my iphone actually detected it.. with 4/5 bars but no internet connection (tried using safari).. i know d wifi works cuz my friend always uses d college wifi connection with his laptop...

    there must be some kind of firewall blocking devices such as iphone (just my lil theory)

    is there anyway i can "get in" to that "firewall" ? so i can use my web browser on my iphone... or install.app maybe? while im in school..

    If your college network is like mine, you need a vpn client to connect wirelessly. If your iphone is jailbroken, I think there is a vpn client for download Under Network or Utilities of the Installer/Appsnap.

    They might require you to register you mac address... I know my campus (CPSLO) does.

    I once prayed to God for an iPhone, but quickly found out He didn't work that way...so I stole an iPhone and prayed for His forgiveness.

    College use a range of security options with wifi. You're better off going to the computer/IT department and asking them how to add your phone to the list of computers that can use wifi. In my school, you either have Novell installed or login through a webpage every time you connect.

    i cant seem to find "vpn client" under my installer...


    and no.. my college does not require some kind of login to use the internet...

    cuz i would always use my friend's laptop and use college's wifi connection and connected right away..
