How To: setup wireless connectivity on Ubuntu (most debian distros)

On the rare occasion that an Ubuntu user is having trouble connecting to smu-wifi:

Step 1 : Click on the connection icon on the notification area and select "Edit connections"

Step 2: If there's a smu-wifi profile, go ahead and delete it. Click the connectivity icon again and then try connecting to smu-wifi

Step 3: Select LEAP as the method of authentication and WPA & WPA2 as the security. NOTE: For other versions of linux like Fedora, you might have to set the authentication method as PEAP and ignore the certificate request

Step 4: Have the user enter their S# and password and that should be all
