WPA Enterprise on Palm Pre

Posted on 2010-01-02
Last Modified: 2012-05-08
I am unable to connect to our WPA Enterprise wireless network from my Palm Pre.  For our standard laptops, we must eliminate the "validate server certificate" option in the client setup (we use the SecureW2 client for our standard wireless clients), but I don't see a way to change this setting in the Palm Pre.

Anyone know how to do this, or if there is a downloadable app for the Pre that can be used?

Because this is a negative question, if the answer is no, I'll split the points between the first 3 answers that confirm no.  If someone has a way of getting the Palm Pre to connect, obviously, that answer will get all the points.

Thanks in advance.

    this clearly doesn't seem to be all that easy:

    But it should really be an option to choose PEAP and no certificate

    Right.  No one in the Palm Forum was able to connect and Palm did not respond to the thread on the forum (it really isn't a Sprint issue).  The Palm manual does not have any detailed configuration options for WiFi.

    What I need is someone who knows the linux configuration file on the Palm Pre and would know how to modify it appropriately to disable the certificate validataion.  This is always an option with real WiFi WPA-Enterprise clients.

    I'm not the right one to tweak the linux OS for you, but I agree - selling a business phone without proper Enterprise WiFi solution is no good.
    True - you SHOULD have certificates, but you don't need certificates - and it will, on (almost) all other equipment work
