Wifi

Linux gives gives you more access to the operating system on a lower level, and is very nice in tailoring your software environments the way you want it to be. The downside however is that sometimes seemingly simple things can be troublesome in Linux - for example logging on the corpy wifi. Linux has NetworkManager with the nmcli utility however, which is a big rescue.

Below are the commands I used to log into the manpowergroup wifi:

nmcli con edit id CONNECTION_NAME

nmcli> set ipv4.method auto

nmcli> set 802-1x.password PASSWORD

nmcli> save

nmcli> activate
