NP Hawks WPA Wireless Setup (Android phones and tablets)

This is a one time process that will allow your Android based device to automatically connect to the NP Hawks WPA network whenever it is within range. The screenshots shown below are for the Google Pixel line of phones. Other Android devices may look different but have similar options.

Only ONE campus Wi-Fi network should be setup on your device at a time. If you setup a device for NP Hawks WPA make sure to make your device forget the NP Hawks Devices, NP Hawks Guest, and eduroam networks to avoid potential connection problems. See our resources on how to "forget" a Wi-Fi network on a device.

 

To begin open the "Settings" app found in your device's app drawer.

 

 

On the "Settings" app screen tap the option named "Network & Internet" or "Wifi".

 

 

On the "Network & internet" screen tap "WiFi".

 

 

For newer devices running Android 11 or newer use the following settings on the setup screen:

  • EAP method: TTLS
  • Phase 2 authentication: PAP
  • CA certificate: Use system certificates
  • Online Certificate Status: Do not validate
  • Domain: radius.newpaltz.edu
  • Identity: <Your Username>
  • Anonymous Identity: <Leave this blank!>
  • Password: <Your Password>

For older devices running Android 10 or older use the following settings instead on the setup screen:

  • EAP method: TTLS
  • Phase 2 authentication: PAP (or None if PAP is not an option)
  • CA certificate: Use system certificates
  • Domain: radius.newpaltz.edu
  • Identity: <Your Username>
  • Anonymous Identity: <Leave this blank!>
  • Password: <Your Password>

Make sure for Identity you enter your SUNY New Paltz Username and NOT your email address. Tap Connect at the bottom of the setup information once all of the above information is entered.

The following screenshot shows Android 10 or older:

 

Upon successfully entering the above details you should now be connected to the "NP Hawks WPA" wireless network.

 

The most common cause for problems setting up your device is a mistyped username or password.
