Hi all, I just installed Ubuntu on my laptop and I found that I cannot connect to my school's wifi network while i have no problem connecting using windows. Also I can connect to my home's wifi network. The details of the wifi network are as follow:

SSID: Universities WiFi
Authentication: WPA
Data Encryption: TKIP
EAP Type: PEAP (EAP-MSCHAPv2)
Trusted Root Certification Authorities: Equifax Secure Certificate Authority
Server Certificate: 802.1x.hku.hk

Here is the instruction for setting up in windows xp:

I have downloaded the certifate required and put it in my home directory
and selected that .cer when setting up the connection
But I still can't connect to it, please help
