The Network Manager is a GUI tool for easy wireless networking management in Linux. If it's not included with your distribution, follow the instructions at http://www.gnome.org/projects/NetworkManager/.

In different Linux versions, the GUI of NetworkManager application could be slightly different, but the settings (wireless network parameters) are always the same.

Setting profile:

  1. Right click on Network Manager icon, choose Edit Connections, choose Wireless and click on Add
     
  2. Follow the settings on screen below:

    For radius server authentication, you will need certificate of the certification authority named TERENA SSL CA 3, published DigiCert Assured ID Root CA. You can download this certificate here in text (PEM) format ("Save as").
