    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 sent a request to the Devicescape guys and asked if they could help, hopefully they can.

    How do you think I'm using it in Norway? :p

    Will that link help me with...

    connecting to my university's wifi? Detailed below:

    http://www.port.ac.uk/special/is/mobilemedia/

    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.
