Topic: Wicd with mschapv2 and wpa2
Hi, I'm using wicd with Arch Linux. I go to a university and they use mschapv2. I've tried learning exactly what that is but I can't figure it out.
Right now, I can connect to the wireless network through wicd, but it is ungodly slow, the google homepage takes about 10 seconds to load. My signal is definitely strong enough. Right now, I'm using "PEAP-TKIP", and entering "students\username" for identity, my school password for the password, and the path to the cert we need to use. However, I don't see any option for mschapv2, so I'm wondering if that might be why it's slow.
Another thing that worries/confuses me is that my wired internet is just as slow. I know the wall jack and cable themselves are fine, because they work automatically with another computer, very fast. However, I disabled the daemon that starts it up, then connected to the wired network by using ifconfig eth0 up and dhcpcd eth0, but it was still slow as hell! Just to make absolutely sure, I booted in a liveCD and connected to the wired internet that way, and it was STILL SLOW.
About 2 weeks ago, before school started, my wireless was working perfectly with wicd at home. I guess it's possible something happened to my hardware since then, but it seems doubtful...it seems way more likely that my school's network is just hard to connect to.
I really have no idea what to do or what all this means. Can anyone help me?
