[SOLVED] Connecting to College Network

Hi, I'm trying to connect to my college network. This is the scan info for the specific SSID:

BSS 00:1a:1e:84:64:65(on wlo1)
	TSF: 73799768253 usec (0d, 20:29:59)
	freq: 2437
	beacon interval: 100 TUs
	capability: ESS Privacy ShortPreamble ShortSlotTime (0x0431)
	signal: -59.00 dBm
	last seen: 520 ms ago
	Information elements from Probe Response frame:
	SSID: ACStudent
	Supported rates: 18.0* 24.0* 36.0 48.0 54.0 
	DS Parameter set: channel 6

		 * VO: CW 3-7, AIFSN 2, TXOP 1504 usec
BSS 00:1a:1e:84:64:64(on wlo1)

These are the settings described for connecting on Android:

SSID - Enter one of ACStudent or AlgSecureWLAN.
    Security 802.1x - Select EAP.
    EAP Method - Select PEAP.
    Phase2 authentication - Select MSCHAPV2.
    Identity - Enter your username.
    Password - Enter your network account password.

And this is my attempted wpa_supplicant config:

network={
	ssid="ACStudent"
	key_mgmt=WPA-EAP
	eap=PEAP
	identity="smit0052"
	password="cY402901"
	phase2="auth=MSCHAPV2"
}

If anyone could point out if there's a problem with my config or let me know that there's not, I'd really appreciate it.

MOD EDIT: Please use code tags when pasting terminal output. ~fukawi2

Re: [SOLVED] Connecting to College Network

Why aren't you able to connect? Some sort of error message from journalctl or dmesg would be helpful.

Re: [SOLVED] Connecting to College Network

Thanks for the reply,

Would I even get error messages using wpa_supplicant? I thought that's only with netctl. I invoke the settings with wpa_supplicant -B -i wlo1 -c /etc/wpa_supplicant/wpa_supplicant.conf then try to connect with dhcpcd wlo1, and it simply doesn't aqcuire the carrier; it doesn't say anything was logged after it times out.

Re: [SOLVED] Connecting to College Network

wpa_supplicant has to put something in the logs doesn't it? I'm sure there's something in journalctl. Have you checked there?

Re: [SOLVED] Connecting to College Network

I didn't check at the time, I'll have to try again and check if there's any logs when I'm there tomorrow. Thanks.

Re: [SOLVED] Connecting to College Network

Have you tried wireless-wpa-configsection through netctl? Take a look at that config file /etc/netctl/examples/.

Re: [SOLVED] Connecting to College Network

Hi, thanks for the replies, my configuration was actually right. Invoking a new wpa_supplicant.conf manually from /etc/wpa_supplicant/wpa_supplicant.conf then running dhcpcd did not work, even though it did for my home network. After setting dhcpcd up as a service, the config works fine invoking it automatically from dhcpcd's default .conf I made in /etc (which was the same as my initial wpa_supplicant.conf).

Can anyone explain this? Surely it should have worked fine before making dhcpcd a service?
