Accessing the BereaSecure wireless networks with your Android device

Android devices come in a number of ‘flavors’ but these directions should be very much the same on all Android devices:

  1. Touch Settings.
  2. Touch Wireless and Networks.
  3. Touch Wi-Fi Settings.
  4. Touch BereaSecure
  5. If you are prompted for a password for credential storage at this point, or if you get a message stating “You must set a lock screen PIN or password before you can use credential storage”, please proceed to the section below and then return here and continue.
  6. Leave all the top fields the way they are and scroll down to the bottom.
  7. In the Identity field enter your network user name (not your email address.)
  8. Leave the Anonymous Identity field blank.
  9. In the Password field enter your network password.
  10. Touch the Save button to save your credentials and you will be connected to the network!

Setting a credential password:

If you do not already have a password set you may be prompted for a credential storage password. This is required in order to connect to wireless networks with enterprise security and you can set this up by doing the following:

  1. Open the phone settings
  2. Choose “Security”
  3. Choose “Set Password” (this may be a PIN or a password depending on your version of Android OS.)
  4. Return to step 6 above.

NOTE: This will pop up on your screen when you attempt to connect to the BereaSecure networks, so please be sure to set a password that you will remember easily.
