1. Enter both username and password
2. Download a specific digital certificate before connecting

Can the iPhone do this? All the WiFi networks on colleges and universities here in Norway use the same login and password with a specific digital certificate.

PM me an example and I can try. I have had no problem with any sites (including university networks) so far.

Any chance that this would work in your situation?

When I initially downloaded DeviceScape Connect my University's WiFi was not in their directory, but I uploaded the requested details to them and within 12 hours it was up and running. I've never seen a login screen since. Even if my iPhone is locked in my pocket, it automatically connects & logs into my campus WiFi on it's own. Very Apple-like..."it just works" :)

You will, however, need a hacked iPhone for this.

I asked the tech guys at uni and they said I can't connect because I need to download a certificate. When I try acessing the wifi connection iPhone asks for just a password, where on my mac I would be asked for a username and password. Any help will be greatly appreciated. Thanks.
