Hogeschool Zeeland uses WPA2 with TTLS and PAP authentication on its WLAN and therefore you need a specific configuration.

In addition to the kernel module specific to your wireless chipset, you will need the following modules for connection the the Hogeschool Zeeland WLAN:

Linux Kernel Configuration:
Networking  --->
  [*] Networking support
  <M>   Generic IEEE 802.11 Networking Stack      
  <M>     IEEE 802.11i CCMP support
  <M>     IEEE 802.11i TKIP encryption
Device Drivers  --->
  Network device support  --->
    [*] Network device support
          Wireless LAN (non-hamradio)  --->
            [*] Wireless LAN drivers (non-hamradio) & Wireless Extensions
Tip: You won't see "IEEE 802.11i TKIP encryption" until you've selected "Wireless LAN drivers (non-hamradio) & Wireless Extensions"

If you compile them as modules use lsmod to view which modules are loaded. If you don't see "ieee80211_crypt_ccmp" and "ieee80211_crypt_tkip" listed, load them using modprobe modulename.

You will also need net-wireless/wpa_supplicant with the following configuration:

Code: /etc/wpa_supplicant.conf
network={
        ssid="eduroam"
        key_mgmt=WPA-EAP
        group=CCMP
        pairwise=CCMP
        eap=TTLS
        identity="your-username@hz.nl"
        anonymous_identity="anonymous@hz.nl"
        password="your-password"
        phase2="auth=PAP"
        priority=2
}

Next you will need to make some alterations to your /etc/conf.d/net:

Code: /etc/conf.d/net
modules=( "wpa_supplicant" )
# Note that you should replace eth1 with your wireless extension (use iwconfig to view your wireless extension)
wpa_supplicant_eth1="-Dwext -ieth1"

config_eth1=( "dhcp" )
dhcp_eth1="nontp nonis"
