Wicd can't connect to WPA2-PEAP


I'm trying to connect to my school's wifi network. It uses WPA2 Enterprise-PEAP. I found instructions for connecting to it on Blackberry, but couldn't figure out how to use it with Wicd.

http://mincading.com/blackberry-wifi...rdsb-15-04-13/

The CA certificate can be found here:


http://www.thawte.com/roots/thawte_Primary_Root_CA.pem

When I try to connect to the network using PEAP-MSCHAPv2 Wicd stops at Validating Authentication. Then, from the terminal where I ran Wicd, I get bad_pass. I am absolutely sure that the password is correct.

What I have already tried, with no success:
Connect using PEAP-GTC
Connect using WPA-PEAP

My wpa_supplicant.conf:

http://pastebin.com/raw.php?i=64SYKDT7

Any help would be appreciated!

This thread has information on creating a template file for wicd. http://www.linuxquestions.org/questi...0/#post5040487

Your wpa_supplicant.conf appears to be a copy of the wpa_supplicant.conf.sample supplied as part of wpa_supplicant. It needs to be edited to suit your networks if you are going to use wpa_supplicant directly. This should not be necessary for the situation you describe.
