Wireless local area network (WLAN) and Nokia smartphones

Nokia smartphones with the Symbian Series 60 platform and logging in to the Wireless Local Area Network (WLAN). Logging in to the local network requires a University user id and the 'WLAN PEAP Password' from the URL 'http//'. You also must install the root certificate of the University in order to log in to the WLAN.

Using the wireless local area network on your Nokia phone

-> Tools -> Settings -> Connection -> Access points -> Options -> New Access point (or edit old one)

The Connection name is an arbitarily given name; the example in the screenshot is 'Jyu-WLAN'. The WLAN name is either jyu-staff (for staff) or jyu-student (for students). The network name can be typed in manually or automatically detected by the phone if the network is available.



Choose options as in the above screenshot: WPA/WPA2 selection, EAP and WPA2 only mode Off. Then click WLAN security settings and you will come to the new window below.



After clicking on the EAP plug-in settings, you will come to the next window.

Enable the EAP-PEAP options and disable all others (EAP-SIM, EAP-AKA, EAP-TLS, EAP-TTLS and EAP-LEAP).



After choosing the right options click EAP-PEAP as in the example above and the next window will appear.

In order to get the phone to work in the WLAN, you have to install the root certificate of the University of Jyväskylä on your phone. You can then select the installed certificate as in the example.

Your user name here is your log-in identification for the network (Webmail, Web Access, etc.).

Allow PEAPv0 and PEAPv1.




Click on Authority certificate to choose the University of Jyväskylä CA#2 certificate as shown below and you'll get the selection as shown above.




After clicking the EAPs button (circled in red, two windows above), the next window will appear.

Now enable EAP-MSCHAPv2 and disable all others using the Options button.




After enabling EAP-MSCHAPv2 as above and selecting it, you'll come to the final window for WLAN settings.

Here your-id is again your log-in identification for the University network. It is always written in lowercase characters.

The password is another story. It is NOT the ordinary log-in password. You'll need to visit the password service at for the 'WLAN PEAP password'. The temporary password is only temporarily valid and must be renewed after the expiration date. (You can renew it at any time.)




After the right settings you can select the name of the defined access point. In our example the name is 'Jyu-WLAN'. The access point is needed while using a web browser or email, for example.
