I have increased the scope of this article to go beyond just netctl configuration. Considering this, I don't think it qualifies as a candidate to merge anymore. Perhaps it would be more valid to link to the netctl setup section if there ever was a "configs" section added to [[netctl]].

Merge to Netctl and Wireless setup

Concerning the suggestion to merge this article with Netctl:

I have increased the scope of this article to go beyond just netctl configuration. Considering this, I don't think it qualifies as a candidate to merge anymore. Perhaps it would be more valid to link to the netctl setup section if there ever was a "configs" section added to netctl.

Then I think the first part should merge to Netctl and newly added parts to Wireless Setup :)
Is there any difference between UWMWiFi network and normal wifi?

I don't think that netctl, Wireless Setup (resp. wpa_supplicant which would be better for the second part) should contain such specific configs. They should at most link to pages like this.
As far as I can tell, there is very little difference from common wifi network (well, at home you don't probably use WPA enterprise...), very similar to e.g. eduroam, for which there are many official and even localized and uni-specific guides. I'm sure something similar exists for UWMWiFi.

I was able to connect to my home network fine, but was unable to connect on campus. I went to the tech support office to no avail. There is a network on campus for eduroam, but they want you to use UWMWiFi. There are no specific resources available for Linux users to connect to UWMWiFi, so I spent a little time playing around with connection settings and made this page. In reality, the only part that I had to figure out was the configuration file. The rest of the information is repeated on other pages.
