Follow the steps below to connect your Android device to AirOrangeX.
Connecting Android 7.0 & 8.0 (Nougat/Oreo) to AirOrangeX
Instructions are demonstrated on an android tablet in the screenshots below, but may also work or be similar for other devices (including Windows mobile devices and linux machines).
Step 1 - Enter the Settings App
From the home screen, click on the apps button.
Next, click on the settings button.
Step 2 - Select AirOrangeX
Under Connections navigate to Wi-Fi.
Select AirOrangeX from the list of connections.
You can access the Wi-Fi menu at any time by swiping down from the top of the screen and holding down on the Wi-Fi icon.
Step 3 - Select Security Type and Enter Credentials
- Make sure EAP method is set as PEAP
- Under Phase 2 authentication, select MSCHAPV2
- For CA certificate, select Do Not Validate
NOTE: The message that "No certificate specified. Your connection will not be private." is expected.
- Under Identity and password, enter your NetID credentials. (In Android 8.0 Oreo, this may be split into two windows.)
- Additional steps for Android 11:
- Set "Online Certificate Status" to Do Not Validate. You may be required to put "syr.edu" in the Domain field.
- Tap "Advanced options" and "Use Randomized MAC (default)" to "Use Device MAC"
- No other fields will require attention.
Click Connect to proceed.
Step 4 - Verify Connection
AirOrangeX will now indicate that it is connected. The device is now connected to AirOrangeX.
If your device is not seeing any of the SU wireless networks, or you simply can't connect to AirOrangeX, you may be having software or hardware related issues with the device. We recommend contacting the ITS Service Center for further assistance.
If the device will not complete the authentication step, please verify your credentials on our NetID self-service page.
Be sure the date and time are correctly configured. It is located in the settings app under the "General Tab". You'll see a "Date and time" section.
