 +  * Identity: <ITaP career account>​ 
 +  * Anonymous identity: (unspecified) 
 +  * Password: <ITaP password>​
  
-4. Save the certificate to a local file, say ''​cert.pem''​. +That should do it and PAL2.0 ​should connect.
- +
-5. Copy the certificate to the phone... +
- +
-<​code>​ +
-% adb push cert.pem /​sdcard/​certs/​Thawte_Premium_Server_CA.pem +

-</​code>​ +
- +
-7. Copy the text below into your (scratch) ''​x.txt''​ file.  Be sure to edit in your login id and password (sigh). +

- phase2="​auth=MSCHAPV2"​ +
-+
-</​code>​ +
- +
-8. Copy your modified ''​x.txt''​ file back out to the ''​wpa_supplicant.conf''​ file.  (Delete ''​x.txt''​ when you're done, since it contains your password!) +
- +
-<​code>​ +
-% adb push x.txt /​data/​misc/​wifi/​wpa_supplicant.conf +
-</​code>​ +
- +
-9. Turn off WiFi, and then turn it back on.  If that doesn'​t do it, then reboot the phone... +
