I often check this page since it the only one I know of with information for configuring wpa_supplicant with Eduroam.

The name of the program is stylized "wpa_supplicant" in its man page ({{man|8|wpa_supplicant}} and is "an implementation of the WPA Supplicant component" according to that page. I think it might be appropriate to rename this page "wpa_supplicant" since it is about the program, not the component it is implementing. -- [[User:Rdeckard|Rdeckard]] ([[User_talk:Rdeckard|talk]]) 02:53, 23 November 2017 (UTC)
Now its gone, its probably somewhere in the history, but since you can't search it...
 
If someone could at least explain why that section was removed...
 
Was it because the configuration varies?
 
Well https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/WPA2_Enterprise#eduroam contains information for
 
 
* connman
 
* Wicd
 
* netctl

:You can browse the history [https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php?title=WPA_supplicant&action=history here]. My conclusion would be that there has never been an Eduroam section on this page, feel free to prove me wrong. -- [[User:Lahwaacz|Lahwaacz]] ([[User talk:Lahwaacz|talk]]) 19:08, 7 September 2016 (UTC)

Name of page

The name of the program is stylized "wpa_supplicant" in its man page (wpa_supplicant(8) and is "an implementation of the WPA Supplicant component" according to that page. I think it might be appropriate to rename this page "wpa_supplicant" since it is about the program, not the component it is implementing. -- Rdeckard (talk) 02:53, 23 November 2017 (UTC)
