None of this worked and is pointless to have to do, should have just had open WiFi. Unclear as to reasoning behind making already slow WiFi harder to connect to.
It seems as though there is a delay in the devices being added to the domain after being registered via MAC address or they are sometimes not being added at all. My nintendo switch was able to authenticate wirelessly, but my xbox and roku could not. When I called support they suggested forgetting the network from the device and waiting 5 minutes after adding it on the clearpass page then trying again. When this didn't work I resolved to using ethernet for it to authenticate and once it was on the domain they were able to connect wirelessly. This isn't a true fix as many devices don't have an ethernet adapter.
Ever since the school has switched to this new wifi system I have been having problems printing things off my own personal computer. My printer never wants to connect and once it finally does I have to also try and re-add it to my printers because it always goes offline. I really wish this was not an issue because I tend to have to print things off all the time and it takes me hours to finally be able to print something.
I dont think this works for Roku very well. Its having me sign up as a guest account which expires every 3 days. Very inconvenient.
How about a bit about how to connect an Amazon device to the network? I've been having trouble with connecting my Dot and there is zero stuff on here about how to specifically connect it and troubleshoot that.
