Notes: There's already Netctl#Eduroam under Netctl#Tips and tricks; it may even be worth creating a Netctl#Profiles section or something like that. (Discuss in Talk:UWMWiFi#)

UWMWiFi is the wireless network used by the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee.

Setup

Still a work in progress, but this seems to function properly:

/etc/netctl/UWMWiFi
Description='UWM WiFi Network'
Interface=wlp3s0
Connection=wireless
Security=wpa-configsection
IP=dhcp
WPAConfigSection=(
    'ssid="UWMWiFi"'
    'key_mgmt=WPA-EAP'
    'eap=PEAP'
    'identity="USER@uwm.edu"'
    'password="PASSWORD"'
    'priority=1'
)

Then to connect:

# sudo netctl stop-all
# sudo netctl enable UWMWiFi
# sudo netctl start UWMWiFi
Note: On some parts of campus the identity field requires "@uwm.edu" and on some parts it requires only the username. For example, the in the Union connecting will fail if you include @uwm.edu, but in the EMS it will fail without it.
