Topic: Chumbians -- I need your help with a WiFi login.
I've been a Chumby owner and loyal fan since early 2008. I have three of them functioning. You may have seen my office Chumbys here on FB: https://www.facebook.com/chumby/photos/ … 365743950/
Well, I need help. That Chumby Classic in the above link (or more specifically, the one in the picture update I posted below it) has been unceremoniously cut off from the world! Our office WiFi, which used to be open, has been reconfigured to require both an ID and password. Since the basic wifi login screen only has space for one passkey, I cannot connect.
Specifically, this is what our IT Dept told me:
"Going forward all devices will be required to be able to connect to the new secured network. If you are unable to connect to the secured network on your device, we would recommend contacting the manufacturer to see if they have a system update that allows for WPA2 Enterprise wireless connections."
My technical know-how is no match the average Chumbian here. I've tried to contribute to these forums in other ways over the years (e.g., lists of internet radio stations).
From the reading I've done on here and on the wiki, it sounds like the login screen can be rewritten to accommodate both an ID and password (or that the ID and password can be entered directly into the code?). HOWEVER, I am FAR from competent in these areas. Much of what I've read comes across to me like gibberish. Am I correct that this can be resolved in some fashion?
If so, can anyone help me with this? I would need someone to walk me through this VERY PATIENTLY (if you ever saw the movie Philadelphia, this comes to mind: https://youtu.be/AR6eXWNJzoY ). Or, if I can arrange it, work with my IT people to redo the login.
The only thing I can think of to offer in return is a free Chumby Classic that I have stored away. I don't know if it still functions, but I can check. It's yours along with my hero worship if you can help me get my poor Chumby to communicate with the world (wide web) again!
