Concordia wifi on iphone setup steps

Ok here we go. so whats going to happen is you email me from the iPhone mail, in the email you will include your netname.

i will then email you back a config file that should look somehting like this,
Photobucket

click on the config, *you should receive just one though, this is a test email i sent to myself*

then go on to step two

Once you click on that file it will take you to a different screen
Photobucket

click on install and move on to step three
Photobucket

Click on the install button again, then it should take you back to the email. just quit the email go back to Settings, then Wifi, then click on Concordia, Put in your password, and voilla! sometimes it takes more than one attempt to get connected, but it will, try it you will see

click on ConcordiaUniversity not ConcordiaWise.

have fun and let me know how it goes, tell your friends.

P.S.
As you can see this was done using my iPod touch, the same procedure works with the iPhone. just email me with your concordia netname, and i will create a config file and email it to you.

Here are some pictures of the iPhone connected to the network

Happy surfing ya'll

Hey man
It worked great! The department of Chem & Biochem thanks you!

I was wondering if there's any way to auto-join the network since Concordia's coverage within Loyola is often patchy at best and I often get knocked off.

Given the number of new iPod Touches that are gonna be around campus as a result of Apple's announcement of their new student promotion, you're destined to be regarded as a hero!

Thanks again!

LOL, AND A STATUE SHALL BE ERECTED IN THE HALL BUILDING! AND I WILL BE CALLED THE MIGHTY ONE!

Lol, as of yet there isnt a way, but i think i found a workaround, This is great news, please tell your friends about this website, were here to help eachother out, and i would love to help as many as I can.

Also soon there will be a way to auto configure this, without having to email me, im working on a little script that would allow users to just go online put it their email and netname, and a conf file will be generated and sent to them right away.

Greetings from the Political Science department.

Something I noticed when joining the Concordia network was that it took me a few tries before I would be authenticated properly. I would get the error that my netname or password was incorrect. Worked after a few tries, though.
I'm guessing this is just Concordia's shotty wifi talking.

Also, Concordia has an Exchange server. I wonder if students can access it...
