    Android does not yet support WPA-Enterprise WiFi. I guess that's your case, as you need a certificate.

    Try this app and see if it works:

    WiFi Helper

    PS: Root access needed.

    Wow, I didn't know there was an app to connect to WPA-Enterprise networks. Thanks!

    Thanks for your reply, but from some reason when I access the Market from my phone in Israel I can't find the application (or any payed applications).

    That simply means Google does not allow payments in Android Market from Israel (the same goes for Russia, and I'm not even sure Ukraine has the Market at all...). It happens. You would have to root your device (read sticky threads in this forum) and use Market Enabler (look in Google).

    Actually, I can't see it either. But the thing is - you'd need to root your phone to use WiFi Helper anyway.

    Having just battled with my Droid to get a cert installed, I looked for a thread where I could share this finding. You will quickly learn that Android requires the cert in PKCS12 format, aka a .p12 file extension to "Install from SD Card". Have fun tooling around the web on how to convert a .pem file to a .p12 file. I found the command line windows based OpenSSL port to (a) work and (b) have the necessary support web articles to guide me through. All that said, I did learn that the .p12 must be in the root directory of your SD card, it will not find it in sub-directories. That's all, didn't see that comment anywhere else, so I wanted to get it posted.
