Connecting an Android Device to BCS Wi-Fi


Android devices are often unable to connect to the BCS Wi-Fi network (BCSSecure or BCSGuest) because for some reason they do not autodetect the authentication method used on our network.  To get an Android device working on our network follow these steps:
  1. Find the Settings on your Android device. You can usually get there by swiping down from the top of the screen and tapping the ‘gear’ icon that you see in the dropdown.
  2. After that, go into your Wireless (or Wi-Fi) Settings.
  3. You should see “BCSSecure” listed. Tap on that to bring up information about the connection.
  4. Select the “Edit” button, and you should see a dialog similar to this one, where you would enter your username and password.
  5. The key in this dialog is to change the “Phase 2 Authentication” to MSCHAPV2. Once you do that, enter your BCS username and password (don’t worry about the “anonymous identity” field) and click Connect.
Now your Android device should be able to connect properly.
