    As if the Wi-Fi on the Eris wasn't bad enough (drops my signal every two minutes when I'm at home...)

    The Wi-Fi at my college is configured to WPA2-Enterprise with a log-on name and password required. My Eris shows that the signal is available, but tries to connect through a WEP key (of which is unknown to me and the tech support at my college...)

    Is there some way to edit the settings of a Wi-Fi on the Eris? I know it can be done on the iPod, but that doesn't mean my pretty little Eris has the same abilities.

    go to settings >wireless and try remembering the network. There you can chose what kind of security to use for that network. It might help. Havent tried it.

    I take it back.
    I got to school and it was forcing my to know the password for the WEP encryption before I could edit the security type.

    Any other suggestions?

    Looks legit. I almost tried this today, actually, but didn't go far enough.
    I'll test it tomorrow. Fingers crossed.

    I'm posting from my eris on campus. It worked... kinda..
    I had to add new network, set ssid to the WiFi network name on campus, set security to eap and change eap setting to leap... then put in my login details and voila.

    ^^ So, how did you set the security to EAP/LEAP and enter your login details? When I add a network manually, I am able to specify the SSID, Security, and Password, but there is nothing else to add. Which is annoying, because I need to add other details (username/password) to access the local WiFi network.

    I wonder if I'm missing a step or a menu or something. This is on a rooted Moment, by the way.
